. . .  in more ways than one.

Military.com reports that:  The commanding officer of the fast attack submarine USS Connecticut was fired Monday after an investigation into the mishandling of classified information.

Navy Times reports that:  The commanding officer of the medium-endurance cutter Diligence was fired Tuesday by the Coast Guard’s Atlantic Area commander, who cited a loss in confidence in the officer’s ability to command related to a grounding last month, according to a news release.

Stars & Stripes reports:  “For Army Spc. Brushaun Anderson, there was no escaping his torment.” He found a way – suicide.  There are some that argue suicide is a coward’s way of dealing with trauma – such a profound lack of understanding contributes to the “epidemic,” as is the continued stigmatization of those who seek mental health help, IMHO.
