"We must be ready to dare all for our country. For history does not long entrust the care of freedom to the weak or the timid. We must acquire proficiency in defense and display stamina in purpose." - President Eisenhower, First Inaugural Address

Update: Inspired by this post and this one and the comments thereto - life at sea for sailors on busy ships (and the officer pictured above was on a very busy ship) is a case study in sleep deprivation and odd hours. In addition to performing your regular duties, you stand 6- 10 hours of watch a day. And, if you are lucky enough, sometimes you work all day and all night and then get to go on watch while others get to grab some shut eye. On the other hand, being busy does help make the time fly by.
