There is nothing like hearing a good story. I saw a great TEDx Talk posted by the U.S. Navy on their Facebook page today. The ten-minute presentation by Admiral Jonathan Greenert, Chief of Naval Operations is excellent. Admiral Greenert is a native of Butler, Pa. He graduated from the
U.S. Naval Academy in 1975 and completed studies in nuclear power for
service as a submarine officer. Greenert became the 30th Chief of Naval Operations Sep. 23, 2011. Here he tells the audience a little bit about this background, the point of his talk up-front, and then tells a story that winds up with a personal ending that brings the message home.
