One of our biggest causes is that of citizen involvement. Captain Luke McNamee, USN, at the time serving as Director of Naval Intelligence, put it better than I could when he said the following in the May 1923 issue of Proceedings:

Our country has become so vast and so diversified in its interests that those voters capable of taking a broad national view of our necessities are in danger of sharing the fate of the dodo. Yet statesmen can accomplish little without your support.
