Inspiring Innovation: Lieutenant Commander Robert Crosby, USN - Examining the Operational, Policy, and Technical Contributions Made by Vice Admiral Samuel L. Gravely Jr. And His Successors
Naval War College (U.S.). Press; United States. Government Publishing Office
"Gravely enlisted in the Navy on September 15, 1942, five months after the Navy altered its policy to allow African Americans to serve beyond the messman rating. Over the course of his long career, Gravely made significant contributions to modern naval warfare. His crowning professional achievement was the direct responsibility he exercised to ensure that all Navy commands had access to satellite communications. While attached to the Satellite Communications Command, Gravely conceptualized and initiated a worldwide restructuring of shore communications facilities, resources, and responsibilities that proved very effective in an era of dwindling resources. Vice Admiral Gravely's distinguished career in the Navy continued a legacy derived from many other African Americans who significantly contributed to the defense of the nation, dating back to the American Revolution."
