"Logistic considerations belong not only in the 
highest echelons of military planning during the
process of preparation for war and for specific 
wartime operations, but may well become the 
controlling element with relation to timing and 
successful operation."

Vice Admiral Oscar C. Badger, USN
   
Other Comments:

As an ensign on USS Utah (BB-31), in 1914 Charles Badger participated in the U.S. occupation of Veracruz. Several thousand American troops landed, in an effort to force out General Victoriano Huerta, who had seized power in Mexico. Fifty-five men were received the Medal of Honor for this action, including seven leaders of the battleship's 'bluejacket battalion'. Badger was cited, "For distinguished conduct in battle, engagements of Vera Cruz, 21 and April 22, 1914. Ens. Badger was in both days' fighting at the head of his company, and was eminent and conspicuous in his conduct, leading his men with skill and courage."

His father was Rear Admiral Charles J. Badger
