Re: I ask because reading about the USN during the Cold War
We lower-level enlisted men generally appreciated him, as he got rid of a lot of the chicken crap that existed then. CPOs generally hated him.
The era of the Vietnam drawdown thru mid70s appears very challenging- much drug use issues, retention, racial problems, etc.
Depends on who you talk to. People either loved him or hated him - there was very little in between.
His tenure the most difficult time for the post-WW2 USN? Did he have an effect, good or less so?
