I enjoyed Victor David Hanson’s editorial[ “There’s a Problem in the Upper Reaches of Our Military,” published on Sept. 8,] and agree that there is something wrong with our military woke generals and admirals.

After 40-plus years in the maritime field, in both the military and my own company, I see America as the Ship of State, and it has floundered; it has been intentionally navigated into an iceberg and is taking on water. The current captain of our glorious ship AMERICA is Joe Biden, and he must be relieved of command. All of his military staff also need to be relieved of their duties. To solve our TITANIC problem, we must reinstate the “real captain” along with his chosen qualified crew to commence damage-control operations to right our ship and navigate it home safely. Of course, this is my dream and I do live in the real world.

However, volunteer workers have been very busy conducting full forensic audits of the 2020 presidential election in Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, as well as other states, and the outcome of which is to obtain and re-certify the vote count in each state and, hopefully, send the results to the Supreme Court for a hearing.

We will probably just muddle along and nothing will get done, but we can dream and hope. Can’t we?
