Public relations, like so many command functions, is difficult of definition and susceptible to no firm tests of "do's" and "dont's" - the sort of list on which so many of us from time to time would like to rest our cases. No matter how complex the subject may be, it is most important that a naval commander realize that public relations is one of hfs important duties; in fact, it is one of his more important command functions.
