Command at Sea Only a seaman realizes to what extent an entire ship re-
flects the personality and ability of an individual, her
Commanding Officer. To a landsman this is not under-
standable and sometimes it is even difHcult for us to un-
derstand. But it is so!
A ship at sea is a distinct world in herself and in consider-
ation ofthe protracted and distant operations of the fleet
units, the Navy must place great power, responsibility and
trust in the hands of those leaders chosen for command.
In each ship there is one man Who, in the hour of emergen-
cy or peril at sea, can turn to no other man. There is one
alone who is ultimately responsible for safe navigation,
engineering performance, accurate gunHre, and morale of
his ship. He is the Commanding Officer. He is the ship.
His is the most difficult and demanding assignment in the
Na vy. There is not an instant in his tour as the Command-
ing Officer that he can escape the grasp of command re-
sponsibility. His privileges in View of' his obligations are
almost ludicrously small, nevertheless, command is the
spur which has given the Navy its
ji great leaders.
