Re: Commodore Wesley confuses me
No question; the captain is responsible in today's Navy no matter what. Matt was allowed to get the ship into port and then never set foot on her again. Sorry for the diversion, lol, now back on track!!
No need to apologize. It's a true story that deserves to be told (and adds a most welcome real life reference to an academic debate). Something similar happened to me when a school bus passed my car too close, flew the driver's door open and crushed it. Of course, only my car was wrecked but in Matt's case a promising career was destroyed. Awful, I really feel sorry for your friend.
