Winter: My father was a Naval Commander who was very liked and respected. He would have stood up for his crew also. I toured the aircraft carrier my brother was stationed on years ago and the one thing I can clearly remember was the lack of privacy on board and the cramped quarters. They better not hold this against the Captain and hold him back from promotion. He was doing his job and expecting his superior officers to do theirs.
