As sailors assigned to the aircraft carrier George Washington cope with three suicides among their shipmates in the past two weeks, and as the ship continues a lengthy and extended maintenance overhaul in the desolation of Newport News, Virginia--resulting at times in no power or working bathrooms for those living onboard--the Navy’s top enlisted sailor brought a blunt message during a visit Friday.
The Department of the Navy is stripping commanders in the Navy and Marine Corps of investigative authority over sexual harassment allegations within their own units.
According to a new message from Secretary of the Navy Carlos Del Toro, commanders, commanding officers and officers-in-charge who receive sexual harassment complaints must forward that complaint to the “next higher level commander in the chain of command” within 72 hours so an investigating officer can be appointed to launch an inquiry into the case.
BEIJING — China protested Wednesday against the sailing of a U.S. Navy guided-missile destroyer through the Taiwan Strait the previous day, accusing the American side of hyping the maneuver.
The Navy’s Japan-based 7th Fleet said late Tuesday that the passing of the USS Sampson through the 160-kilometer- (100-mile-) wide waterway between Taiwan and China “demonstrates the United States’ commitment to a free and open Indo-Pacific.”
The guided-missile destroyer Donald Cook has concluded a surge deployment to U.S. 6th Fleet after getting underway in late January.
While tensions with Russia were rising due its massing of troops on the Ukraine border, Donald Cook deployed along with the Mitscher, the Gonzalez and The Sullivans to participate in a variety of maritime activities supporting the U.S. 6th Fleet and NATO allies, providing them additional flexibility, Navy spokesman Cmdr. Arlo Abrahamson told Navy Times in early February. But defense officials insisted the surge was not in response to Russian provocations.
WASHINGTON — Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Mike Gilday mused about a day when the U.S. Navy might be able to buy a dozen or more ships each year. The Navy would be given the funding levels, and the surface ship industrial base would have grown the capacity, to support building three destroyers a year, two or three frigates a year, an amphibious transport dock every other year, and a larger number of supply ships.
But as he made clear in his remarks this week, that day is not today.
