OUR HERITAGE rhe insignia of the USSJOUETT (CG-29) bears a short but potent motto: ETERNAL VIGILANCE. From time to time, Jiese words may convey various symbols and meanings. In the last analysis, however, they always come to focus on the con- :ept of " ceaseless watching and constant readiness. " fOUETT ' s motto is a first principle for ship ' s company. It defines our daily duty in the clearest possible terms. It also speaks :o a past history, a purpose, and a price that must be paid by those who dare display such words. In that respect, ETER- MAL VIGILANCE becomes a terse but weighty summary of theyOf £rrHERITAGE. ETERNAL VIGILANCE recalls past history and a tradition springing from the 19th century naval career of Rear Admiral lames Edward JOUETT In 49 years of service. Admiral JOUETT distinguished himself by dedication, daring, and deci- siveness. These personal qualities are essential ingredients for " ceaseless watching and constant readiness. " CG-29 is the :hird ship to bear his name. Each has executed missions worthy of his reputation. Indeed, each has added to his reputation. ETERNAL VIGILANCE reminds us of the purpose for a ship of the line. Upon commissioning, every naval vessel becomes in instrument of our national objectives. This is true whether engaged in the projections of sea power or the promotion of people-to-people diplomacy of mercy. A sober responsibility falls upon each succeeding command and crew. No one can adequately fulfill this obligation without " ceaseless watching and constant readiness. " ENTERNAL VIGILANCE reflects the price required to uphold the yOt £rr tradition and the national trust. JOUETT men must give beyond average professional expectations. They continually strive to be first. This is not for the sheer glory of position or recognition. Rather, it is the only time-tested way to ensure that our missions will be completed with com- petence and excellence. JOUETT men meet the challenge of disappointments, sudden changes, frustrations, failures, and sundry other obstacles with adaptability, determination, creativity, and initiative. When textbook solutions fail, they invent. When sources are lacking, they improvise. They bear long separation from loved ones and the comforts of life ashore to keep JOUETT " on the line. " Motivated at times by duty alone, they turn to. We are proud of the OLfrr HERITAGE. It is a distinct and singular honor to carry on in the place of those before us. May the thoughtful consideration of our past, our purpose, and our pride constantly stimulate in us the character neces- sary for- ETERNAL VIGILANCE
