That is a really wonderful article! As a native Texan with family roots in Fredericksburg, Admiral Nimitz's birthplace, I really enjoyed it. If any of you get up that way, don't miss visiting the historic Nimitz Hotel and the adjacent National Museum of the Pacific War. You won't be disappointed. pacificwarmuseum.org

A true behind the scenes story. The best leaders find a way to relax enough to make the terrible decisions they must make. A good example of what could happen to someone who didn't was
Ghormley, original CO of the Guadalcanal operation.
