Final Court Scene
Carl Brashear: I have spent most of my life in the navy, trying only to succeed, however, My quest has come at a great personal loss to those that love me, they too have made sacrifices they too have endured great pains to support me, If I walk these twelve steps, re-instate me to active duty, give me back my career let me finish it and go home in peace…
Captain Hanks: Senior Chief Brashear, the Business of the modern Navy
Carl Brashear: Forgive me Sir but to me, the Navy is not a business, we have many traditions in my career I have experienced most of them, some good some bad…. but we wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the greatest tradition of all
Captain Hanks: And which one is that?
Carl Brashear: Honor, Sir
There are times in life when we want to achieve something but it takes every ounce of energy from us, especially when we are almost there.
We are required to search from Deep within and give our 12 steps, 12 Steps of commitment, loyalty, trust, passion, and remembering the essence for which we fought so hard to achieve.
It takes sacrifice, commitment, belief, and Grace but after the 12th step your whole future awaits you
So, Keep Going and Never give up
