The New Yorker looks at the life of Admiral Michael Boorda, from his childhood and family life to his suicide in 1995. The article claims that Boorda's suicide was not just the result of Newsweek's questioning of his right to wear certain decorations, but a long-fought battle over the Navy itself that started with the Tailhook scandal. (Septemeber, 1996)
