This is somewhat a follow-up to my previous posting regarding a fictional situation where a Secretary of Energy is embarked on a navy ship and finds herself the surviving senior Federal official responsible for the entire nation. My new question, however, is:
Would an admiral or general, having flag rank, always be addressed as "admiral" or "general" instead of as "sir"?
As a captain or admiral is announced by rank when on deck or on the bridge, would the Secretary of Energy also be announced when entering a deck level, room, or the bridge? Remember, for purposed of this story, she's acting in the authority of the president and is carrying out military duties aboardship and not there for a simple visitation.
flag officer forms of address?
