Three Stars and a Crow is the story of Bob Walker, a man who loved the U.S. Navy from the moment he met it, and who set out to become the best by devoting himself to serving his country and the men and women who serve.
From a typical American childhood raised on a farm, Bob’s character was instilled by his parents. He played quarterback in high school and won a nationwide speaking contest that helped him and others realize he was destined to lead.
After joining the Navy at 19, Walker rocketed through the enlisted ranks to achieve chief in just eight years. His was the Navy of spit and polish, chain of command, and an absolute dedication to quality and performance.
In this book, Walker lays out the principles that led him to go toe to toe with all who threatened his Navy. Read about the courage it took to speak the truth and demand changes to a system that had lost the polish of the past. Find out why his family managed to love him and believe in him in spite of the separation and demands he placed on them.
Filled with typical no-bull Walker language and humor, Three Stars is sure to become a classic guide for enlisted who want to rise fast and make a difference. This book describes how Walker did it, and why so many Sailors have such respect for the man who brought respect back to the Navy, the man who loved them beyond reason, and who became a living legend in the United States Navy.
