NAVY LINKS OF THE DAY

Officials: Destroyer Preble CO relieved following DUI arrest

The commanding officer of the guided-missile destroyer Preble was relieved Tuesday after being “arrested on suspicion of DUI,” Navy officials have confirmed.

Before he was fired this week, Cmdr. Peter Lesaca had been in command of Preble since October.

“Navy commanding officers are held to high standards of personal and professional conduct,” Naval Surface Forces spokesman Cmdr. Arlo Abrahamson said in a statement. “They are expected to uphold the highest standards of responsibility, reliability and leadership, and the Navy holds them accountable when they fall short of those standards.”

Surface warfare officers cautiously optimistic about changes since Fitz and McCain disasters

When the warship Fitzgerald collided with the hulking AXC Crystal container ship off Japan on June 17, 2017, one midgrade surface warfare officer recalled being horrified — but not exactly surprised.

He had commissioned into the surface fleet in the 2000s, a decade when the “struggle bus to competence” was the name of the game, and SWOs were often thrown into life-or-death ship-driving realities with little to no hands-on training, a shortfall on the fundamentals that was grimly acknowledged by Big Navy brass in the wake of the disaster.

Navy destroyer bears name of decorated Marine killed in WWII

BATH, Maine — The christening of a Navy destroyer on Saturday highlighted the sacrifices of two generations — the ship’s namesake killed in World War II and another Marine who died more than 60 years later.

The future USS Basilone bears the name of a Marine who was awarded the Medal of Honor before his death on Iwo Jima.

Breaking a bottle on the ship’s bow for good luck was a woman who lost her brother in an ambush in Fallujah, Iraq.

Rep. Rob Wittman on US Navy ship retirements and a sea-launched nuclear weapon

WASHINGTON — After two of the four congressional defense committees have debated their fiscal 2023 bills, two key U.S. Navy issues have surfaced as the most contentious: the Navy’s plan to decommission 24 ships in one year and its decision to cancel a sea-launched low-yield nuclear weapon.

Iranian vessels approach US Navy ship at ‘dangerously high speed’ in Arabian Gulf

Three vessels from Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy approached patrol coastal ship Sirocco and expeditionary fast transport ship USNS Choctaw County in an unsafe manner while transiting the Strait of Hormuz Monday, according to the U.S. Navy.

The Sirocco issued an audible warning to prevent a collision as one of the vessels drove directly toward the ship at a “dangerously high speed,” the Navy said. The Sirocco also released a warning flare when the Iranian vessel came within 50 yards of the ship.
