For the third time, Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy (SS/SW) Rick West has posted a video on the web, but has declined to add his voice to the mix.
Still, he gets his message across quite well by flashing a series of cards to his audience. This message? It was the safest year and summer for the Navy in the past decade.It starts out with a bit of symbolism that summer is now over as he seems to put away his baseball bats before picking up his flash cards to send his message.
It’s his third video posted on his Facebook page that used the same technique and apparently he thinks it’s working. He’s also good company, years ago, folk artist Bob Dylan used the same technique in his video rendition of his Subterranean Homesick Blues. That was followed by INXS, who used the idea in their video of Mediate.
Clearly MCPON got the same message my mother used to preach: “Actions speak louder than words.”
I just want to know one thing — what’s up with that Heisman move? I think THAT needs some more work!
