BTW--wasn't try to denigrate the Navy. I think they do a hell of a job. The apex of a Naval officers career is a command tour as a Captain. Anyone who can successfully pull that off deserves respect. The problem is that if you are not in that club, the Navy will treat you as an outsider. They are very insular and guard their turf with tenacity. And will never admit they're wrong--they may change their policies and practices, but they will never admit the old ones were wrong. It is this, coupled with their sense of absolute superiority, that makes working with the Navy 10X more painful than it needs to be.

I worked with Aegis folks a few years ago. Boy, what a difficult bunch (both the Navy and Lockheed Martin). But they are very good and what they do and (I guess) they have their reasons.

BTW--Never tell the AF they are one dimensional. They will take your head off! They will tell you they fight in the Air, Space, and Cyberspace (not to mention CAS). And they are right.

See your point. You are right on the zoomies too. Three dimensional also.
