"he was accused of making unwanted sexual advances at women"


Seems like a perfect candidate to join Humpy and the Deplorables.

It wasn't him. It was his friend. He was in trouble for keeping a professional or personal relationship after the guy got drunk and hit on colleagues at a party.

Damn, tough to be forced to retire when on the precipice of landing a dream job among flag officers, due to a friend's actions, but that was bad judgement on his part.

Scoop: there are ten four-stars in the Navy:
The most six senior of those are:
Davidson Caldwell Foggo Grady, then John Aquilino (wins for best name, IMO), and Faller.

VADM White would be my favorite, because that would mean we would lead the way in Cyber, but that would require a promotion + getting the top gig, which isn't how these things work.
