This trend is the only thing about Jamaicans that can’t change and we now see it in the work and life of Captain Janice Smith. With this in mind, we salute Captain Smith as the newest commander of the Military Sealift Command Atlantic which is a component of the larger Military Sealift and TRANSCOM organizations.
You need to know that Commander Smith is the first person of colour to hold this position. In the same fashion, we compare this feat to the many other pioneers who put in the work and set the bar for everyone to follow. Pioneers like Rosa Parks, Katherine Goble, Mary Jackson, Dorothy Vaughan, Maggie Lena Walker, and the list goes on.
