Earlier this year the following 'incident' also took place aboard the USS Shiloh :

Search For Missing USS Shiloh Sailor Suspended After 50 Hours; Sailor Presumed Dead

Then came the 'happy-end' :

USS Shiloh sailor admits hiding aboard ship, charged with abandoning watch, dereliction

Must ... not ... laugh ...
But this may well be another example of the crew's current low-morale issue.

In 1985 there was a ship that had been in the yards for over three years. During the time in the yards they had a Change of Command. When the ship came out of the yards the Commanding Officer (CO) had about six months left in command. Command at Sea is a large checkbox for promotion as is an INSURV inspection. This CO was determined that his ship would be perfect no matter what the cost. He rode on his crew. Had them working sixteen hour days even while the ship was in port at a time when the ship was due to change home port in a few weeks. At that time a standing joke was that if the Navy wanted you to have a family, they would have issued you one. He pushed his crew so hard that they had had enough. When it was time for the INSURV inspection there was an organized effort to tank some of the drills to get back at the CO. As far as I know that CO did not get promoted.

As Zap said this is nothing new. i remember reading about there being cheating on tests for Navy nuclear reactor operators. Competition for promotion among officers is so tight that they were giving the answer keys for written tests to the people taking them.

This has been going on since long before Obama, and has nothing to do with him. You can find examples of this going on for almost as long as there are public records for the Navy. Toxic commands are as old as the military, and will be around for as long as the leadership refuses to step up and do anything.


Exactly.

It's a symptom of a person with absolute power and no way to reconcile that power.
