Vision and Mission[edit]

Are these acceptable section headers in terms of WP:NPOV? • • • Peter (Southwood) (talk): 10:12, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

NPOV requires us to accurately and neutrally summarise all of the significant points of view represented in reliable sources. The vision and mission statements are present on the Navy Experimental Diving Unit website, so do accurately represent their view, and I don't know of any other sources presenting a view on the issue. The real problem is that our article uses direct quotes from their website as if they were in Wikipedia's own voice. I've turned them into cited quotes and attributed them to circumvent that problem. --RexxS (talk) 11:13, 1 August 2012 (UTC)
