"The analysis of the submarine ethos is what one would expect from an ensign who has never served on board a submarine and is excited about his first duty station. He is, however misguided and uninformed. Submarine ethos is not grounded in engineering, although engineering is an integral part of what is done. The ethos is from a warrior past, present, and future. Put simply, this is the silent service, not the nuclear service. By placing such an importance on engineering, the relationship between engineering and mission accomplishment is misunderstood."
