#1 Career, marriage, reputation down the tubes for the Navy personnel. Sad in so many ways.

#2 Have you ever seen the Navy uniform? Imagine being dressed like that and walking down the street in some Indonesian port town.
Maybe it was even the town where Obama grew up and you know what his mother did for a living.

Hello, sailor.

#3 Boats and sailors certainly aren't my forte, but perhaps a PACOM, command oversight, supervision and monitoring issue is involved. Could someone ring the club, or the golf course please ?

Malay LBFM's? Photos? Rough, memory challenged, inquiring minds.

#4 Navy, not Army, Besoeker. Having worked w/ Seventh Fleet, there isn't 'golf course' or 'club'. There isn't enough time.

Operations officer for Seventh Fleet is a high-profile, 'trusted position', usually given to a front-runner. Port reassignments are usually routine and wouldn't normally draw attention.

Given the Navy's current politics, I also suspect demographics and Misiewicz's "back story" are strongly involved as well.

No doubt there's going to be some heads rolling.

#5 Heads rolling, Pappy?
Hope so. Wonder how many rolled due to greasing Hasan's slide to Ft. Hood.

#6 Military medicine is different from operational forces. Navy COs get relieved a lot more than they used to, though more for political reasons than for incompetence. Like I said, I suspect demographics and Misiewicz's "back story" had a lot to do with this.

#7 Selling out your country for Gaga tickets might be a new low.

#8 Back story? I got a feeling I don't want to know.

#9 The back story.

As you can well imagine, the Navy, with its overwhelming commitment to diversity, combined with CDR Misiewicz's then-stellar record, would place such an officer in what is a very high-profile, high-responsibility position.

Apparently Commander " Vannak Khem" had some... shortcomings.

#10 LBFMs? memories of Subic City, Olongapo and jeepneys and Jolos......
