After much scandalous publicity about his wild lifestyle, the U.S. Navy’s top-ranking sawbones will go back to being just another brass hat. The boyishly casual first name should have been a clue to President Donny Trump that Ronny is not a traditional top military guy.
Just suppose other past uniformed leaders had flaunted more relaxed names. For instance, Generals Georgie Washington, Bobby E. Lee, Stoney Jackson, Johnny Pershing, Dougie MacArthur, Georgie Patton and Admiral Tommy Dewey and Chesty Nimitz. Do you think they would’ve made it into the history books with such boyish monikers?
