CAG was right

I once heard CAG say once in the Big E in the middle of a cigar -
"The more senior you are, the more time you have to get in the cockpit or stand watch with your crew."
Of course he didn't mean it literally - but the idea was that you should be in the aircraft or in CIC/on the bridge enough that you are out there. It is hard to do though when everything and everyone is looking to take a chunk of your time. Outstanding Officers and Leaders can be put in a situation where they are sent to war - but their ISIC and entire Admin Chain of Command are still in a peacetime mentality.
