Shame is a powerful tool
We made it through the month of April without a single report of a Navy Commanding Officer or senior leader being fired. In discussing this with other interested parties, we decided that SHAME works. It's not my tool of choice, but sometimes one doesn't have a choice.
Did the highly publicized and WIDELY reported firing of the CO of USS COWPENS play a role? It may have.
For my part, whatever works is fine by me. I'd like to see ZERO firings for the rest of the year. I think the CNO would like to see the same.
