CDR Doran ... off the Christmas Card list ...

Ungh. No history merit badge for you.
Take, for example, refueling at sea. A regular warship matches speed with an oiler by syncing up the revolutions per minute of the ships’ propellers. The problem? Freedom doesn’t have propellers.
This is a revolution, not an evolution, for the Navy,” said Cmdr. Mike Doran, captain of Freedom’s Gold Crew, which rotated onto the ship in March. “The normal way the Navy does things today doesn’t work for my ship.”
Just ungh. I blame the way we write FITREPS. Words mean everything, therefor words mean nothing.
