"The relationship between officers and enlisted men should in no sense be that of superior and inferior."
-Lieutenant General John A. Lejuene, U.S. Marine Corps
The Navy has taken significant steps I over the last several years to transform itself. Whether it is for financial reasons, to update our fighting abilities, or just plain common sense, transforming the Navy is a good idea and long overdue. That being said, we should realize that now is the time to rethink how we lead our Sailors in today's fast-paced environment in a still unforgiving profession. I am glad that Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Mike Mullen has gone on record as stating that he "wants to make Sailors the center of the universe" and I feel he is making a personal commitment to doing exactly that.
