Inspirational Quote of the Day: One From A Great American Military Man on Right Decisions

Donald Trump would do well to follow Admiral Spruance’s advice as he debates evil Hillary on Sunday night. Forget yourself. Make the right decisions.

Calm, cool, collected Admiral Spruance followed his own advice, for which we can be thankful.

Learn more about Admiral Raymond A. Spruance at Wikipedia.

Raymond Ames Spruance (July 3, 1886 – December 13, 1969) was a United States Navy admiral in World War II.
Spruance commanded U.S. naval forces during two of the most significant naval battles that took place in the Pacific theater, the Battle of Midway and the Battle of the Philippine Sea. The Battle of Midway was the first major victory for the United States over Japan and is seen by many as the turning point of the Pacific war. The Battle of the Philippine Sea was also a significant victory for the US. The Navy’s official historian said of the Battle of Midway “…Spruance’s performance was superb…(he) emerged from this battle one of the greatest admirals in American naval history”.[1] After the war, Spruance was appointed President of the Naval War College, and later served as American ambassador to the Philippines.

Spruance was nicknamed “electric brain” for his calmness even in moments of supreme crisis, a reputation enhanced by his successful tactics at Midway.[2]
