Our team is at the leading edge of the total intensi- fied effort to deter stubborn and reckless aggression and to protect the precarious peace." Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Thomas B. Hayward said, "Every member of the Navy-Marine Corps team can properly take pride in our achievements. Your dedica- tion and professionalism have car- ried the Navy and the Nation through times of world tension and uncer- tainty." Commander in Chief Atlantic Fleet, Admiral Harry D. Train, said, "The Navy has seen changes since its inception, but the basic qual- ities of commitment, dedication, and faith in the principles for which our Navy and our Nation stand remain constant.
