Another One Bites the Dust

In case you missed it the Navy has crap-canned another O-5.

Cmdr. Shawn Bentley was relieved of duty Monday by the Navy for loss of confidence in his ability to command, only three months after assuming the position. Capt. Brian Costello, commander of the Navy's Strategic Communications Wing One, removed Bentley from command, said Lt. Cmdr. Charlie Brown, a spokesman for the Naval Air Forces. Brown said Bentley, who is based with the squadron at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma, was removed after an investigation by the Navy's Inspector General was completed. The Navy did not release any details about the investigation or about any possible allegations against Bentley.

It appears to be another banner year to be a CO in the Navy. We seem to have a pretty good track record of firing people in recent years. It makes command all worth it if you get that live band at your change of command.
