21 Skippers Fired - One common thread
The Navy Times has an article about 7 of the 21 skippers who have been fired in 2011. The common thread among 7 of them was abuse of alcohol.
The real common thread among the 21 skippers fired is that they didn't live up to the demanding personal and professional standards required of our commanding officers.
The Navy is interviewing the fired skippers to find out if there are some "hard lessons learned" that they can incorporate into training and the selection process.
