In the fleet, there are many times when officers need to make difficult decisions: decisions that have large consequences. Sometimes, it seems easier to solve the problem by making the wrong decision because the immediate consequences can be a burden. However, it is important for officers to make the correct decisions, even if they have consequences. One situation that comes up often in the fleet is the opportunity to “gun-deck,” which means signing off on something that has not been finished or inspected.
