NWS Charleston Base CO Arrested

The Commanding Officer of Naval Weapons Station Charleston, home of Nuke School and NPTU Charleston, has been arrested for soliciting an undercover policewoman posing as a prostitute. Excerpts from a local newspaper article:
Capt. Glen Melvin Little, 55, of Goose Creek, has been temporarily reassigned to the office of the commander, Navy Region Southeast, in Jacksonville, Fla., said Scott Bassett, public affairs officer at the Weapons Station.
According to a North Charleston police report, Little was arrested about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday after having approached an undercover female police officer who was posing as a prostitute in the Charleston Farms area on Remount Road...
... The officer then asked Little if he wanted "business," and he said he did want "business" and asked her several times if she was a police officer.
Little offered to pay $20 for an oral sex act and invited the officer into his vehicle. The officer told Little it would be better if he were to pick her up in the rear of the building, where other officers moved in and took Little into custody, the report said.
It looks like even the oldest LDOs can be caught believing the old urban myth that police have to admit they're law enforcement personnel when asked when they're undercover.

Although CAPT Miller's bio has been scrubbed from the NWS Charleston website, they couldn't scrub the Google cached version (which could get updated to the blank page at any time), where we find that he is a Submariner from his enlisted days, serving on USS Birmingham (SSN 695) and USS Phoenix (SSN 702). He later commanded the drydock USS Arco (ARMD 5), after which he served as the Submarine and Nuclear LDO Detailer, so he's familiar to many Submariners. Hopefully he'll be able to retire quietly and not have this unfortunate incident be all that he's remembered for in the Navy.

The Capt seems to be a stand up guy. He's also lectured at KB too in recent years. It's too bad he wasn't stationed here in the Pacific N.W. We could have easily have gotten him laid with a minimal amount of effort or trouble. Hopefully, he'll be able to enjoy his retirement years and forget this horseshit he inadvertently got himself into.

One of the best features about having a DIVO, DH or even an XO who's looking to get his dick wet is that if you get them laid and keep them out of trouble, you're guaranteed an EP on your next eval.

I too wish him well.

Charleston must be having a large problem with this to have vice out at 9:30 am on a Tuesday.

This happens when you let you Johnson lead your actions. It doesn’t’ matter what the rank, rate, pay grade or position is. You can do it once, you can do it twice but you’re going to get snapped up eventually. People just don’t do a risk analysis on these things.

He’s high profile so it would be reported on. Here in San Diego, we had a letter to the editor from CO Naval Station about their reports on the vice busts down in the Midway District. The comment was that they had 14 arrests and they only identified the four or five who were in the military. The CO wanted to know why they didn’t identify the Target employee, ect.

I'd like to see his Region Commander's notebook to see if he has the formal counseling with the Captain acknowledging this. Where was the peer mentorship? Were the NPTU and NNPTC CO's not providing the necessary support to prevent this? How am I going to plan for the corrective training resulting from this?

Actually, I hate the fact that the Navy loves to avoid problems at all costs if possible, and I bet you would never hear of an O-6 getting a hummer legally even if it makes the rest of the officer community look bad. Just saying...

I tried to look it up but the best I could find was:

"882. ART. 82. SOLICITATION
(a) Any person subject to this chapter who solicits or advises another or others to desert in violation of section 885 of this title (article 85) or mutiny in violation of section 894 of this title (article 94) shall, if the offense solicited or advised is attempted or committed, be punished with the punishment provided for the commission of the offense, but, if the offense solicited or advised is not committed or attempted, he shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.
(b) Any person subject to this chapter who solicits or advises another or others to commit an act or misbehavior before the enemy in violation of section 899 of this title (article 99) or sedition in violation of section 894 of this title (article 94) shall, if the offense solicited or advised is committed, be punished with the punishment provided for the commission of the offense, but, if the offense solicited or advised is not committed, he shall be punished as a court-martial may direct."

None of which seems to apply to prostitution. If you have a better reference - please provide it.

One laments that there is no article prohibiting the stunningly stupid, but as the sign in my desk said when I had command ... and as this blog proudly proclaims these many years later ... stupid will get punished.

And getting fired as CO is not punishment, though many treat it as such. No one has an equity interest in or right to command. Ditto a military career. Both carry privilege extended by the nation in exchange for faithful service of proper standard. One should not require judicial or non-judicial proceedings to judge that this guy really screwed the pooch while ... wait for it ... trying to screw the pooch.

Yes, I wear the ring, and I haven't never heard of anyone who has been given preferential treatment because they were a grad. Yes, there may be some personal relationships that started there, but these same sort of personal relationships could be formed by being roomates or shipmates at any step of a career.

Who says preference is only lavished on grads? Latest example:
http://www.neptunuslex.com/2010/01/29/navy-football/

Since you wera the ring, we suspect your use of the double negative "haven't never heard" (quoted above) was quite intentional and may be interpreted as your having heard of preferential treatment.

There is no reason for you to take personally valid criticisms of the publicly-funded USNA.

You sound awfully sensitive about this issue. From what I've seen, the rumour is true. It may be as you say "loyalty to classmate", but I tend to believe that the loyalty is more deap seated than that. There's not a damn thing wrong with folks of a common background ie: same college, same hometown, etc. forming a bond, but when those bonds negatively impact "outsiders", that's when the problem sets in. You can deny it to hell and back, but I've seen some really great officers who would have been a significant player in the Navy leave because they felt they couldn't get an even break, and that was due to the fact that they were 1. NROTC or 2. Mustang. They felt the USNA grads got the better deal. Again, this may just be perception, but perception is reality to the individual, and how many really good folks can you lose before you have to acknowledge there is something to look at?

I agree that perception may be the reality for the indivudal. There are two ways to approach a perception. You see both approaches here. One is to treat is as if their perception is reality (e.g. not acknowledging that a person may have gotten out over an incorrect perception). The other is to say their view is not true and fight against it.

My point is that I have really only seen one blatant instance of USNA loyalty and that person was dealt very harshly by his USNA graduate superiority (had to make a public apology, ended up being selected for O-6 but chosing to retire instead). I've just never heard it brought up in any of the many ranking or selection boards I have witnessed or been a part of. I haven't always agreed with the ranking/selection board decisions and sometimes thought the reasoning was flawed. Commissioning source has never entered in the argument.

I have great respect for all the commissioning sources. Each brings their own strengths and weakness to the mix. Having is single commissioning source is surely not the right answer, so don't read that into what I am saying. My sole point is that those people with the perceptions of grads looking out for grads need to change their outlook. I think the statics will bear this out.

Or, those who give the appearance of perpetuating the perception need to be aware of how their actions affect others. It's not just a one-sided solution. It takes all to make a negative perception go away.

In the meantime, good officers leave because they feel like a second rate citizen. You cannot continue to "say" it does not exist if they believe it. You also have to back up your words. Yes, they need to see beyond the perceptions, but so do you and your peers.

Tom, I'm glad to see someone step up and defend his shipmate, even if he fell down. Everybody is susceptible to failing of one type or another, but the measure of a man is how he recovers from it. I don't know CAPT Little personally, but I bet he picks himself up and moves on.

For the record, ELT1 is right about Old Tom Rd. The speed limit there is more about harrasing the sailors heading to NPTU Charleston than about safety. Give me a break. Even the golfers I've talked to are annoyed by the slow speed drivers have to travel, because they have to wait for them to go by before they can tee off. I'm not willing to blame the CO of NWS, though. I blame the rent-a-cops who act as if they are Harry Callahan and they are saving San Francisco from Scorpio.

Exactly what command could you have been in with Capt. Little?

He was the NWS CO, home to NPTU Charleston.

There was a shit mail sent out at nptu from the XO about how Capt Little was "losing patience" with traffic violations.

Just trying to clear up confusion.

one thing that always pissed me off when i was a submariner,
all the god damned adultery.
i hope the same punishment is 'rewarded' to this idiot that he would have 'rewarded' to any sailor under his command.

See... now this is why I always came in the back way via Wilkinson... I could get up to 50mph out there without any issue, and the drive was always quiet because no one else came that way.

Granted, I lived in the absolute slums of North Charleston when I was there, just south of the local baseball stadium.

Being a USNA grad or Mustang has no bearing on his morals. He got caught, just like Clinton did. He should have implemented proper risk assessment procedures, or sent in an A-Ganger first. We would have done that cop upside down and sideways, and if the police dog attacked, well...it is fair game too. Pets and farm animals....they are not just for eatin'!!!

This is similar story - CO of DDG 103 was just fired according to the navytimes for "loss of confidence."
