U.S. NAVY - Collisions and the Tough Message

NOTE:  During my 22yr carrier in the Navy (now retired) I served on a Court Martial Trial board.  The charges in these cases are appropriate.

"Harsh legal charges for U.S. Navy ship collisions send tough message" PBS NewsHour 1/17/2018


SUMMARY:  Last year, two naval destroyers were involved in two separate deadly collisions in the Pacific.  Now the former commanders of both vessels face a battery of offenses, including negligent homicide.  John Yang talks to retired Lt. Col. Gary Solis of Georgetown University about the unusual nature of the charges and the larger message they send.
