Our Navy is Decisive: CAPT Honors Relieved as USS Enterprise Commander
Navy Admiral John Harvey permanently relieved CAPT Owen P. Honors, Jr., as Commanding Officer of the USS Enterprise, now preparing for deployment in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. Update: The Enterprise is to deploy Thursday, January 13.
To Admiral Harvey's credit, and that of the Navy, he acted decisively and in the best interests of the USS Enterprise and its almost 6,000 sailors.
There's quite a lot of commentary on this, but it's clear that the controversy made it impossible for CAPT Honors to continue to hold the confidence of his superiors.
We hope that the Norfolk Virginian-Pilot will share the other videos with the American people, if only to support CAPT Honors' post-retirement career as a comedian.
