Yes, another member of our armed forces who we should all be grateful for.
Mr. Rochefort was in the right place at the right time to provide the intelligence Admiral Nimitz needed to risk his precious carriers at the battle of Midway. He was also the reason he had quick access to Admiral Nimitz's staff. He knew the information was most valuable the quicker it got to the commander in the field and he had fought for his quick access.
It is a bad feeling when you read military books and find that over and over again the rivalry between branches of the armed forces or even between departments of the same service create situations where we should have done better. Mr. Rochefort seems to have, in the case of Midway, succeeded in doing it better. Very well done Mr. Rochefort and all those who worked with you! Thank you for your service.
