Good Morning Developers,

Would you add Admiral Henry B. Wilson, U.S. Navy (1861-1954) as a Legendary ship Commander in game ? As I imagine, along with other naval legends such as Chester W. Nimitz, Husband E. Kimmel, Willis A. Lee, Ray Spruance, Arleigh Burke, William F. Halsey, Marc Mitscher, Henry T. Mayo and William S. Sims. 

Admiral Wilson could also even be added as a legendary commander, that came with a premium or in game USS Pennsylvania (BB-38) or USS New Mexico (BB-40) ? As they were both his Flagships at one time.

Admiral Wilson, a great naval leader, ship handler, tactician, educator, administrator and Fleet Commander. During World War I, Admiral Wilson was at nearly the same tier of responsibility and leadership as Admiral William S. Sims, U.S. Navy and Admiral Henry T. Mayo. Following the war, Admiral Wilson commanded the U.S. Atlantic Fleet (1919-1921) and was in command of the entire of the U.S. Fleet during large training exercises of 1920-1921, where the Atlantic Fleet and Pacific Fleet were combined. Other highlights of Admiral Wilson's naval career, of 44 years (1881-1925), include President of the Board of Inspection and Survey, First Captain of the battleship USS Pennsylvania (BB-38), Captain of the Battleship USS North Dakota (BB-29), Commander of U.S. Naval Forces in France/ Commander, Patrol Forces, Atlantic Fleet and Superintendent of the U.S. Naval Academy (1921-1925). While Superintendent of the Naval Academy, two of his students were future Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Arleigh A. Burke and future "Father of the Nuclear Navy" Admiral Hyman G. Rickover. The Destroyer, USS Henry B. Wilson (DDG-7) was named in his honor.

Admiral Wilson's service record details, I believe speaks for itself:
