Former Secretary of Defense, Melvin Laird, has called the Polaris Submarine a “priceless asset” in the Cuban Missile Crisis. The man responsible for the development of the Polaris was Rear Admiral William Raborn, Jr. He carefully recruited his top management personnel. When they came on the job he would give them and their families a patriotic pep talk on the importance of their assignments. On those occasions when it appeared that someone was not doing his best, he would call him into his office for what he termed, “rededication.” One officer, recalling one of those emotional sessions, said, “When I walked out, I knew I was ready to die for someone. I didn’t know whether it was for the admiral, the president, my mother, or the head of the Boy Scouts, but brother, I was ready to die if necessary!”


Now that’s what I call enthusiasm! Enthusiasm has been defined as “energy that boils over and runs down the side of the pot.”
