Being The First in 2010 is Not Necessarily a Good Thing - Navy Supply Corps School's "Leading Chop", chopped !

The Navy fired its first CO of 2010. It didn't take long. The Navy Times reported that Captain John Titus Jr., CO of the Navy Supply Corps School (and President of the Northeast Georgia Chapter of the Navy Supply Corps Association) in Athens, Georgia was fired on 8 January 2010 for the unusually very specific cause - “lack of confidence in his ability to lead.” The results of the Judge Advocate General (JAG) report were not released.

The last time the CO of the Navy Supply Corps School was fired was in 2002. The school is scheduled to move to Newport, Rhode Island in 2011.

The NSCS's former Executive Officer, Commander R. Paul Wilson has assumed command on an interim basis until the Navy can name Captain Titus' relief. Captain Titus' photo and bio have already been removed from the Navy Supply Corps School website.

I was one of the students at the school at the time; although I was unaware of the incident until much later. It involved male instructors partying and acting sexually innapropriately with female students. Capt Titus was not directly involved, but he failed to decipline the officers who acted inappropriately with students. I was told the reason he failed to exact proper discipline was because one of the officers was close to retired.
