Skipper of USS Germantown fired

It’s firing season in the Navy again. With the captain of the USS Germantown, the charge was poor command climate, lack of confidence in his judgment and leadership, especially in relationship to his handling of a sexual assault investigation. The ship’s command master chief walked the plank last month.

The XO of the USS Connecticut, an attack sub, also got the big boot, with talk of an NCIS investigation underway.
