First Tour of Duty
A young ensign had nearly completed his first tour of duty. He was given an opportunity to lead the ship from the last port to their final destination. He directed the marines with a stream of strict commands, he was clear, precise and effective.The ship started the last route, and very soon the port was far behind.
The young ensign was more than proud of his first tour of duty. He glowed at his accomplishment and was not surprised when another seaman approached him with a message from the captain himself.
But it was a printed radio message: "Congratulations upon completing your first tour of duty so precisely and so fast. However, there is an unwritten rule. First you have to make sure the Captain is aboard!"
