USS Columbus Hazing -- More News
I've been getting a lot of good comments, including from a former Columbus Sailor and a commenter who says he's the father of the Senior Chief who's been charged (his comments are here and here), in my previous post on the USS Columbus (SSN 762) hazing story. This post is basically just to move the topic nearer the top of my blog.
The Navy Times came out with a story today that pretty much has the same information as the previous reporting in the Kitsap Sun; this story, in a more "national" publication, should mean that the bigger newspapers, unfortunately, will be picking the story up. (I say "unfortunately" because there's really no way the Sub Force can come out of this looking very good. We knew it would happen, though.)
I'll add updates to this post as they come out the next few days. Staying at PD...
Update 0003 26 April: The Columbus hazing story is on the cover of Navy Times, and in an article in the Kitsap Sun (annoying registration required), the father of the Senior Chief charged with failing to report the hazing wants to know why the senior leadership of the submarine hasn't been publicly disciplined.
