I received a follow up comment from “An Old Navy Man” today. He states:
“I guess Lawhorn will have to share underwear with Cole and Hellman now. The Beltway rumor is that Vince Taylor was encouraged to move on.”
Original Post – story
There’s an old Navy story about a ship’s Captain who inspected his sailors. Afterward he told the first mate that his men smelled bad. Perhaps it would help if the sailors would change underwear occasionally. The first mate responded “Aye, aye sir, I’ll see to it immediately!”
The first mate went straight to the sailor’s berth and announced, “The Captain thinks you guys smell bad and wants you to change your underwear.” The first mate continued, “Watson, you change with Sterling.” “Taylor you change with Cole.” “Lawhorn you change with Hellmann.”
The moral of the story- someone may come along and promise change, but don’t count on things smelling any better.
It’s time for the Office of the Secretary of Defense to hand the Industrial Security mission back to the Government Contracting Authorities.
