Oh, he'd chalk it up to the Pressures of War and be all profound about the niggling accomplishments of the "leadership" of this vessel after the War. Ignore the sacrifice and contributions of the enlisted ranks like the rest of the "journalistic" field does.
Big pet peeve of mine. Leadership can't perform without followers. Followers are important. Followers are not lesser humans-- they're members of a different profession.

The Greatest Generation is after all a human one. Therefore mistakes are to be expected and part of life.

My grandfather crash-landed a P-38 in training. Does that count?
