Well, I’ll venture that his career is dead for real, no faking needed.

I have always said that the biggest vulnerability of men and even extraordinary men wasn’t alcohol, gambling or drugs. It is as it has always been there inability to walk away from the temptations of sex.

Certainly not the type you want in command of an attack submarine

If only there were something she could have done to prevent that.

Oh, wait...

Well, the plot certainly thickens.

Conduct Unbecoming - is that still on the books, or has that been thrown out too?

Which is why The Honey trap was always the most successful espionage tactic.

This is a photo of Michael P. Ward II taking command of the USS Pittsburgh on August 3. A week later, he would be relieved of duty. No doubt one of the shortest commands of a submarine in Naval history.

He’s not the first, nor the last sub officer, to have his torpedoe, torpedoe his career.

Sounds like something from NCIS. Gibbs always finds the truth.
