"I believe our families are every bit a factor in our readiness as our technology and our training. Their love and support make it possible for us to do what we do each and every day. Deborah and I are dedicated to improving the quality of life for our families and our larger Navy family that shares a rich tradition of sea service." - Admiral Michael G. Mullen, Chief of Naval Operations.
