You bear a special burden, you carry a special trust as skipper of a proud ship with a proud name. Chief is more than a name. It is a symbol, a tradition, of all that is good and honorable in the greatest Navy that our world has ever known. Petty officer James Ku, Commander Fleet Activities, Sasebo, Japan.
