Ms. Bligh may be soon adrift

Navy Times reports that:

The former cruiser skipper who was relieved of command in January after years of “cruelty and maltreatment” toward her crew will be required to show a Navy board why she should continue her career, a Navy spokesman said Thursday.

Capt. Holly Graf, who was fired as commanding officer of the Yokosuka, Japan-based cruiser Cowpens on Jan 13, will go before a Navy Personnel Command “show-cause board” within the next few months to make her case for staying[.]
