While in the Navy, just after returning from the Med - Mideast deployment - when we got back to Charleston - I was forward plotting FTG PO, running the Monthly Satterwhit monthly checks on our 56 Fire Control System, it showed some questionable problems in the system Director!
So using the check and verify the principle of elimination - went up on the 56 Director and discovered that the slip rings lower section were corroded!
Since We had xfered our lead E-6 FTG - PO off while in the Mediterranean some months earlier - and only had a E- 5 lead PO! So as a junior E-4 PO, they did not seem to want to believe me back in Main Plotting! So I just said OK, just wait until the Fleet Evaluation team stops aboard for a system evaluation!
Within a week they were all over it - then ask why I did was not aware of the slip rings corrosion? My reply was I had investigated and found the Corroded Slip rings - told the lead PO but they ignored it as I was just a boot E=4. What did I know?
** Experienced this while in the Navy, aboard the USS Manley DD 940 1964!
The lesson learned is always to do your regular system checks and take note of any irregularity!
This is the same practice in life! When you do your best some times people will not always recognize it! Still do your absolute best anyway!
Why do anything less?
