I just wrote this article about impossible dreams in the maritime industry: OPED - El Capitan Quixote And An Impossible Dream
After a three-quarter-century battle, the American Merchant Marine Veterans Association won full veteran recognition for WWII mariners… something that only two years ago seemed impossible.
Now they are fighting for full veteran status for merchant mariners of Korea, Vietnam, and both Cold Wars… which seems, frankly impossible.
Who else in the maritime world is fighting the impossible fight?
Anyone trying to reform MARAD or the USN
Anyone working on Short Sea Distribution
Anyone working to bring diversity to the highest levels of the shipping industy
