    They very seldom just dump them from the service.The Navy assumes that as an officer and a gentleman they would do the honorable thing and resign,don't know what they expect a woman to do ?

    Moving to GD. This is not breaking news.

    I don't know about now, but the Navy used to have a way of treating people like this by putting them into a no-authority/practically no-responsibility position with a meaningless title. They tend to become harmless zombies. At any rate she will never get another command, and probably no more sea duty so her career is effectively over. But today it is hard to be sure. She may end up working for some liberal who thinks she needs another chance and gives her authority, and she will start all over again. As a 4 striper, she has to be allowed to retire unless she commits a courts martial offence. When she gets passed over 3 times she is out...so she has about 3 years left.

    Wish the post could have been of a positive nature ... one o the main reasons I got out was Clinton's integration of women on combat ships. I was a plankowner on the Gettysburg (CG-64) and 3 months after my EAOS they were putting her in the yards to refit Supply berthing for women. Ironic that Capt. Graf was commander of Cowpens (CG-63) ... Cowpens was built right next to us at Bath Iron Works, was considered our sister ship. Bottom line (IMO), women in the military can work, women on ships can't. Just my opinion ...
