His alert yet relaxed manner backed by sound judgement and obvious concern for his men sets him apart. He has successfully blended the accomplishments of his Naval career to produce a unique leadership capability. The degree of authority and forcefulness he employs in exceptionally appropriate and always tempered with humility, integrity, and selflessness.”
