Up periscope! 203

Navy Times reports:  The commander of a deployed EA-6B Prowler squadron was fired late Thursday following an investigation into sexual harassment allegations, the Navy announced Friday.

(Interesting, perhaps to Navy folks, the XO was allowed to take temporary command.  Looking at the allegations and knowing the function of an XO in a Navy unit  — odd?).

Navy Times is also reporting:  The top sailor on the dock landing ship Fort McHenry was fired Friday over allegations of misconduct, Naval Surface Force Atlantic announced late Friday.

Unofficially, Darcy would be the seventh top sailor fired in 2011 — a total that includes six command master chiefs and one submarine’s chief of the boat.
