I was alerted to this blockbuster news by Rick, a Navy veteran and current Fire Marshal. It is the stuff dreams are made out of for cartoonists. According to reports, the Surface Warfare community is about to start its own version of Top Gun (“Navy to Standup Surface Warfare ‘Top Gun’ This Summer“).
I will admit it makes sense – take the top performers and hone their skills at naval warfare. But the devil is in the details, and at some point the Navy has to give the school a name. It is officially called the Naval Surface and Expeditionary Warfare Command, but that is too complicated. My advice to the Navy is to give it a cool name, or someone else will.
Like me, for example.
So if I were you, Navy, I would get ahead of the problem and make your own cool nickname for the school. Do it right, and hey, maybe they’ll make a movie out of it.
Meanwhile, I’ll start sharpening my pencils.
