Bush fired 26 in one year. Probably part of the same conspiracy.

Was the CO the leader of a Blue crew or a Gold crew?

Not toeing the øScama line, methinks ?

If not for vested pensions, I wonder how many (of all ranks) would continue to put up with the traitorous piece of filth and the destruction of our military ?

Well on a different link on that site they show the 19th one fired was done in by being drunk and slapping a subordinate.

Missles are expensive.

Cammanders are a dime a dozen.

Possibly it was due to the commander’s inability to abide
women or sexual deviants on his boat?

2006-2007 was the worst year for firing CO’s. It is cyclical. You give Obama way too much credit. Like he knows anything about being a CO....Yes he is Commander in Chief but really?????????????

“Angry that he was not invited to a group dinner, the commander of a Navy flight squadron hurled insults at subordinates and slapped another sailor several times while they were all drinking at a bar in Bahrain, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.”

Note- this is the 19th guy fired, not the one this thread is about.

I bet the CO of the VINCENSE will be fired soon. They just did a NCIS investigation and found 46 Sailors who were either using spice or selling it. BIG NO NO! I would bet anything his career is evaporating before his eyes.

He wants an immoral military that will obey illegal orders to fire on US citizens.

Each nuclear submarine (well, the missile boats at least) is assigned two full crews. Each has its own captain and full complement of officers and enlisted men. While one crew has the ship on patrol, the other is ashore undergoing refresher training, taking leave, training replacements and so on.

One of the posts on the link says this:

“Makes me wonder if these decisions have anything to do with Commanders not following the new rules on welcoming openly gay crew members, women crew, etc.? Certainly raises the question...if they are resisting or moving too slow the brass may be brooming them..”

"The article said Gold crew."

Uhhh, no.

The article said he took command of Kentucky Gold in Feb '10, and 'combined crew' in Aug '11.

My son spent 14 years on boomers, still works at Kings Bay, and this is the first instance I have ever heard of a boomer 'combined crew'.

IIRC, they combine the blue and gold crews into one smaller crew before going into the shipyard for overhaul or decommissioning.

It is believed the navy kicked out 64 sailors - 49 off the carrier for using, storing or distribution of spice.

You got the wrong ship. The VINCENNSE is a cruiser. The crew fired came from the USS CARL VINSON - a carrier.

which is the MAJOR reason why we can not make the military so cushy that there is more loyalty to the govt than to the citizens....

If that doesn’t scream CONSPIRACY, I don’t know what does.

Damn those Third Stage Navigators. Messing it up for everybody.
