What does accountability mean to you?
Captain David Adams, Commanding Officer of the USS Georgia’s Blue Crew, was relieved this month due to a “loss of confidence in his ability to command based on fact and circumstances revealed in a command investigation in to the November 25th, 2015, incident in which USS Georgia was returning to port, struck a channel buoy, then grounded.”
Captain Adams released an official statement on the incident this month:
“The actions that hazarded Georgia upon a scheduled return to port in the dark on the morning of 25 Nov were mine alone,” Adams said. “I ask that my lapses not be used to denigrate the terrific service of the sailors and families of Georgia Blue. After 30 years of serving in the world’s finest Navy, my only regret is that I will miss sailing with them again to stand against our nation’s enemies.”
