THE PETTY OFFICER working for me aboard the USS Cape Cod had just qualified as the in-port officer of the deck. She was standing on her first four-hour watch and sent two young sailors to raise the flag for morning colors. Soon she received a call informing her that the color guard had raised the flag upside down. Recalling the qualifications board she'd just passed, she quickly answered, "Well, it's either a mistake, a distress signal or the ship is upside down!"
