REPORT: Three ship commanders fired in two days, raising questions about Navy’s ‘zero-error tolerance’ culture
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
The second-in-command of a Navy submarine was fired this week, making him the third senior leader of a ship to be dismissed in two days.
Lt. Cmdr. Jonathan Cebik was removed Monday from his position as executive officer of the USS Jimmy Carter over concerns regarding his personal judgment. Two other senior officers were removed for the same thing Tuesday.
The article goes on to state the following:
Such dismissals are by no means unusual, current and former Navy officers told the Washington Examiner. A 2004 Navy inspector general report found that 78 officers were removed for similar reasons between January 1999 and June 2004, an average of slightly more than one per month.
According to Task & Purpose:
The Navy has fired five senior leaders so far in August – and the month isn’t even over.
A Navy spokesman said there is no connection between any of the five officers relieved of command, adding that each relief is looked at separately.
“Senior leaders in the U.S. Navy, especially those in triad leadership positions – commanding officers, executive officers, and command master chiefs – are entrusted with essential responsibilities to their sailors, ships, and commands,” said Cmdr. Jereal Dorsey.
