This Rear Admiral (LH) (and I doubt he will be one for long) lied to NCIS and DCIS in the ongoing Fat Leonard Case. All who wear the ring know how this would have ended when we were cadets. Our sleep would have been interrupted by the roll of the drums followed by a ear shattering bang of the base drum. We would then hear the litany uttered by the President and that person would no longer be part of the Corps.
There was a time when he would have had his rank stripped, his sword broken and would have been thrown out on his ass. Perhaps we need to bring back public humiliation for Flag Officers.
