"There is nothing dare devilish about the motivation of a man who decidesto dedicate his life to the submarine service. He does indeed take pride indemonstrating he is quite a man, but he does not do so to practice a form of  foolhardy brinkmanship to see how close he can get to failure and still  snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. On the contrary, the aim of theSubmarine Service is to battle the danger to minimize the risk, to take everymeasure to make certain that safety, not danger, is maintained at all times. Are the men in submarines braver than those in other pursuits where the possibility of sudden tragedy is not constant? The glib would be that theyare. It is much more accurate from a psychological point of view, to saythey are not necessarily braver, but that they are men who have a little moreinsight into themselves and their capabilities. They know themselves a lot better than the next man. This has to be so with men who have a healthyreason to volunteer for a risk. They are generally a cut healthier emotionally than others of a similar age and background because of their willingness to push themselves a little bit further and not settle for an easier kind of existence. We all have tremendous capabilities, but are rarely straining at the upper level of what we can do; the United States can be proud and grateful that so many of its sound, young, eager men are enoughabout their own status in life and the welfare of their country to pool their  skills and match them collectively against the power of the sea" -
