I get a chance to travel, which is the best therapy for ignorance. Few events allow one to adapt their viewpoint like first hand experience. At present I am at gate 19 in Reagan National Airport. I spent a good weekend in our nation's capital.
At my conference with the Navy I heard about the challenges facing us as a Navy and, more importantly, as a country. I was delighted to reconnect with so many friends, including some not in the Navy.
