CDR Jana Vavaseur is the Brigade Honor Officer. We discuss the mission of the Naval Academy and we understand where Honor fits into it’s goal “To develop Midshipmen morally, mentally and physically”. Basically, how does the Honor Program add to that mission? What are the facts and some of the numbers related to honor, and honor violations? We discuss do we recruit honorable high school graduates, or do we develop honorable Midshipmen? Finally, we discuss the concept of Brittle Fracture, and that how that idea relates to Honor violations.
