    In the November 2017 edition of Maritime Reporter and Engineering News, you can find my article entitled "Back to basics". The article discusses the importance of training and adequate rest for proper performance of duties by US Navy personnel in light of the recent series of marine casualties involving naval warships. In this regard, Navy personnel are no different than merchant mariners and the Navy should look to the merchant marine for examples of how the issue can be addressed.
