New Posts On The COMSUBFOR Blog

Both RADM Caldwell and VADM Richardson have new posts up at the COMSUBFOR blog. Hopefully they'll keep writing and responding to the comments they get.

Update 0830 10 August: VADM Richardson has been busy getting his views out in the public eye; he wrote this response to a post from a Naval War College professor over at The Diplomat.

Well I'm impressed in the fact that the comments were actually read and answered by the Adm. I hope this blog is a success.

I applaud the admirals' effort at getting with the times, but they don't understand blogging. Their entries are basically speeches, and are unreadable and boring as such. Canned, artificial party line.

If they want people to actually read their writing, they need to get more personal, and turn down the "party line" a notch.

Unfortunately for them, I've already cornered the market on the "where's the most diabolical place you've ever left a steaming bag of poop when you turned over to the other crew" discussions.

Neither of these Admirals are "party line" guys. Any man who ever served with them would say the exact same thing, Enlisted or Officers. Our Submarine Force most likely has never had two better men serving as Admirals of LANT & PAC at the same time. So respect what they have accomplished. Just sayin...

We Midshipmen like to know what we are going to be facing in a few years, and with all the tumult in politics and the uncertain future, it is doubly important. With that in mind, I truly hope that the submarine fleet maintains its strength during these painful cuts.

Congrats again to the CPO's,

Not sure if any action will come out of it, but the fact that Admiral Richardson is up for comment via blog, speaks volumes to his genuine willingness to hear from the fellas. I know that he is busy but this is still a greater effort to give direct response to the fleet than any recent I've seen. His approach was well recieved on the crew, though I did tell my division be respectful and no fart jokes...they are still sailors mind you.

BZ to COMSUBFOR and thanks for the opportunity to continue to serve.

To the midshipman" Walk right over to Bancroft and ask the Dant, who happens to be an 1120.
