I don’t like this practice in the Navy, when the staffers write the article with the boss’ name on it, either.
Even in the Navy case one could argue that the article is the senior officer’s official position and thus worthy of only the one guy’s name on it, but it still stinks that the guys who spend all their time researching and writing get no recognition of the work they did. And it’s not as though those top bananas are doing anyone a favor by taking the brunt of the criticism–because when was the last time anything written by an active duty multistar flag in Proceedings got serious flak?
