Overheard in the P-Way in Norfolk following Captain Honors' "SHOW CAUSE" hearing

"All successful Naval officers resemble
each other, but each failed
Naval officer is a failure in his
own unique way."

More about Captain Honors and the three Aviation Flags who voted to keep him in the Navy HEREI stand with Galrahn on this one.

So "they" want to nail this guy and Holly Graf has been walking around for over a year with no retribution? Capt. Honors just wanted to improve moral. Whereas Graf physically assaulted people. Her failure in leadership FAR outweighs anything Capt Honors has done! ANCHOR UP OFFICERS!

O.P. is unique.

I think you mean - "do your job - show cause boards."

If Graf physically assaulted people why is she still in the service?
Look at Lisa Nowak, she plead guilty to burglary and battery and was reduced to a Commander and given an other than honorable discharge. This is fairly light considering the offenses.
Does she still retain her retirement pay and benefits? If so why? If she does, what does an officer have to do to lose their retirement and benefits?
An enlisted person probably would have been given a dishonorable discharge and loss of all benefits.
Is there a double standard of punishment in the Navy one for enlisted people and a different one for officers?
You may say that officers are held to a higher standard, but the punishments given out do not support that, especially concerning senior officers.

Saw this on CDR Salamander's page:

"When last I checked, findings by a BOI were binding on the "Bureau Against Naval Personnel" while recommendations regarding retention on active duty were just that - recommendations. So, the Board's findings of misconduct are binding but their recommendation that he be retained on active duty is not. The Bureau could still discharge him..... A very common tactic by Counsel for Respondent (the term for the "defendant" at a BOI) is to help the Board understand this technical point and urge them to find "no misconduct" if they want to retain the respondent. A finding of "no misconduct" ties the Bureau's hands - they can't discharge him. but a finding of misconduct leaves the Bureau free to discharge regardless of what the Board recommends."
