The memo of shame

Via NPR ... yes NPR, we have a memo that anyone with more than 10 years of commissioned service should recognize - the classic CYA memo that kicks a decision upstairs because you know that you don't have the top cover to survive an attack of the Diversity Bullies.

How do I know? I had been guilty years back of the same thing for the same reasons - I knew there was negative top-cover from my CO's ISIC and acted accordingly. I'm not proud - but I protected my CO; I thought that was my job.

Diversity - it makes cowards of us all - except for our MIDN perhaps; we'll see how their CMEO complaint goes.

Hat tip MTH.
