Ens. McCallum and the Raiders

August 29, 1986

So the Navy has decided to allow its athletic standouts to participate in professional football on a "not-to-interfere" or "no-conflict" basis with their "regular" duties. This is an unfortunate decision--for us taxpayers.

These young men, ostensibly screened for their intellect and leadership potential, have been given, at taxpayers' expense, a comprehensive education. This should have prepared and motivated them to serve as totally committed Navy and Marine officers, not as "part time now" and "full time later on" football players.
