Admiral James Stavridis Cleared

Adm. James Stavridis

Yesterday, you may have read the story of BG Jeffrey Sinclair. Today Navy Times is featuring another flag officer who found himself in a legal stew.

Except Navy Adm. James Stavridis’ issue was minor and found to be accidental. His crime was in his record-keeping of travel and the subsequent reimbursement errors that resulted from them.

The Admiral visited us down at Guantanamo Bay when I was there and he certainly is well-spoken. Lastly, I’ve read many of his writings and Adm. James Stavridis is one of the great scholars of the Navy. Read his work if you are so inclined.

  1. Reminds me of ….Bosnia in 2003-04. It was a “hazard duty zone” so it was tax free for the military. We had high ranking folks from all over Europe etc come in and stay for one day…and get the entire month tax free on their military pay.
    It was a safe place to visit…unlike Iraq was a year later.

    • We used to see those chumps coming into Bahrain at the end of the month. They would stay through the first of the next month just to punch two months. That is, until the NAVCENT Admiral got pissed. And all that stopped.
