RULERS AND LEADERS
A huge difference between the two.
There are many ways to rule, whether by Law, by Writ or by Force and Hard Nosed retaliatory resolutions in order to intimidate,harass,and fine members into compliance, as we are seeing here today.
Then there is actual Leadership, something that has been lacking here at CRR for way too many years!
No matter how big or small an organization is, there is always one person on top, running the show. How this person conducts the business of the organization with RESPECT, TRANSPARENCY & HONESTY will determine how members react,respect and support the organization’s mission goals & projects in the future.
The following attached story was written in 2010 by Douglas K. Menikheim Capt.USN Ret. It’s rather long, describing an incident that occurred Sept 1979 on the USS John Young DD973, a New San Diego Based Destroyer. RM’s Dave Stangland, a Crew member, was on the Ships Fantail at the time of this incident.
