"No More Catch Phrases, Please"
(See J. Murphy, pp. 30-31, February 2002 Proceedings)
Vice Admiral Robert E Dunn, U.S. Navy (Retired)—Only the Editorial Board knows just why Chief Murphy's essay was rated only second honorable mention in the Enlisted Essay Contest. But for my money, his article rates with the best of Proceedings articles, along with such classics as "Special Trust and Confidence" (May 1956) and "Get Off My Back, Sir" (August 1977). It should be required reading for new political appointees, admirals, prospective commanding officers, and initial officer training schools, and used in chief petty officer indoctrination.
