    Congratulations Admiral Locklear. I have a very very small inkling of the hard work it took to rise to this level of position and service in the Navy. My son is just starting out on the other end, soon to graduate from OCS at the Officer Training Command Newport. I hope he is as successful in whatever he decides to pursue.
