Re: Pursuing a Posthumous Promotion for CAPT Joe Kelly to Flag Rank
I have spent some significant time pondering Bruce's assertion and I cannot think of another Naval officer whose efforts contributed more to national defense over the last nearly 70 years.
I know absolutely nothing about the process required to make this happen, but I'm in.
It is likely that the members of the O-7 selection board never even heard of SOSUS. We weren't allowed to talk about it when I joined in 1971 so my guess is that very few selection board members were briefed on our system.
Our membership includes numerous Flag officers and Captains. I would like to see some of them weigh in on this subject, whether they agree or not.
