  2. The stealthy F-35 jet may not complete its most critical stage of combat testing until about September 2022, the latest in a series of delays that has set America's most expensive weapons program back by years, Pentagon officials were told last month. The rigorous testing in the $398 billion program that was once planned for 2017 was most recently scheduled for December. But the Defense Department's F-35 program office has now projected the target date for the monthlong simulator testing as August 2022, according to a briefing chart used in a mid-March review.

  7. HONOLULU — The Honolulu Medical Examiner's office on Monday identified the U.S. Navy sailor who shot and killed himself at a luxury resort after a standoff with police over the weekend. Russell Cruz, 40, of Kailua, Hawaii, died of a gunshot wound to the head, the medical examiner's office said. The Navy was still notifying relatives Monday and hadn't released his identity, said Cmdr. Cindy Fields, a spokesperson for the U.S. Pacific Fleet submarine force.
  8. MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia on Tuesday called the United States an adversary and told U.S. warships to stay well away from Crimea "for their own good", calling their deployment in the Black Sea a provocation designed to test Russian nerves. Moscow annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 and two U.S. warships are due to arrive in the Black Sea this week amid an escalation in fighting in eastern Ukraine, where government forces have battled Russian-backed separatists in a conflict Kyiv says has killed 14,000 people.
  9. PENSACOLA, Fla. - A Sailor assigned to Region Legal Service Office Mid-Atlantic has created an advancement exam study planner for his fellow shipmates, and it is available for download on MyNavy Portal and Navy COOL.
  10. The U.S. military sent a warship in defiance of maritime territorial claims of India, a fellow member of the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue (Quad). New Delhi has objected to the action, as both countries emphasize a focus on geopolitics across Asia and its strategic oceans.
  11. TOKYO — A Navy officer has been punished for penning a letter to the Yokosuka Naval Base housing office that excoriated his enlisted neighbors as “deviants” and “perverts.” Yokosuka Naval Hospital determined that Lt. Nathanael Allison wrote the letter, in which he complained of being forced to live with his family in a building for enlisted families, according to Task and Purpose, a military news site, on Thursday. Task and Purpose cited Regena Kowitz, a spokeswoman for Naval Medical Forces Pacific in San Diego. Kowitz did not respond to queries Friday from Stars and Stripes.
  12. Seahawk is a long-range, high-availability autonomous surface vessel with a composite trimaran hull. This medium-displacement unmanned surface vehicle (MDUSV) will enhance capabilities for naval operations. Like Leidos’ MDUSV Sea Hunter, Seahawk is substantially larger than other U.S. Navy USVs and has significantly increased capabilities compared to smaller USVs in terms of range, seakeeping and payload capacity. Seahawk is designed to operate with little human involvement, thus providing a forward-deployed and rapid-response asset in the global maritime surveillance network.

  14. Update: Navy fires skipper of Hawaii-based destroyer USS Hopper over morale problems
  15. Earlier
  16. The commander of a Hawaii-based guided-missile destroyer was removed from her job, the Navy announced on Wednesday. “The commanding officer of USS Hopper (DDG-70), Cmdr. Kathryn J. Dawley was relieved of her duties on 06 April 2021 due to a loss of confidence in her leadership,” reads a release from the service. A Navy official told USNI News there was no misconduct associated with Dawley’s removal.
  17. JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (Tribune News Service) — For a second time, a defendant in a Chinese smuggling case that led to a Jacksonville-based Navy officer’s indictment has been sentenced to time she had already served behind bars. Zheng Yan, an employee of a Chinese technology company, pleaded guilty in August to conspiring to violate American export laws in a case where investigators gathered information through use of the spy-busting Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.
  18. Update reread the navadmin says dodid
  19. The U.S. Navy’s director of air warfare did taxpayers a big favor last week when he opined that there is no need for a new class of light aircraft carriers. That half-baked idea was floated during the dying days of the Trump administration, reviving an idea that has been studied over and over again for decades. The studies always come to the same conclusion.
  20. WASHINGTON — A once-secret unit within the Guantanamo Bay detention center that had fallen into disrepair has been closed and the prisoners moved to another facility on the American base in Cuba, the U.S. military said Sunday. The prisoners at Camp 7 were transferred to a facility adjacent to where the other detainees on the base are held as part of what U.S. Southern Command said in a statement was an effort to "increase operational efficiency and effectiveness."
  21. DAYTON, Ohio (Tribune News Service) — The number of overall active-duty military deaths by suicide grew in 2020, a new report from the Pentagon shows. Overall, all branches of the military recorded 377 suicides among active-duty service members in 2020, up from 348 in the active-duty component in 2019, up 29 deaths or about 8%. In all services, there were 99 suicides in the last quarter of 2020. That compares to 100 in the same quarter of 2019.
  22. Petty Officer 3rd Class Fantahun Woldesenbet shot and critically wounded two sailors working at a site outside of Fort Detrick, Md., on Tuesday morning before military police shot and killed him for breaching a gate at the Army base and pulling out a weapon. Military and civilian law enforcement did not say whether 38-year-old Woldesenbet, a Navy hospital corpsman who was assigned to Fort Detrick, worked at the overflow site in Frederick where he opened fire on fellow sailors, nor did they speculate on the motive behind the shooting.

  26. WASHINGTON — The commander of the Navy’s Fleet Readiness Centers was fired Monday, according to the service. Rear Adm. Trent DeMoss was relieved by Vice Adm. Dean Peters, the commander of Naval Air Systems, “due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command,” according to a Navy statement.
  27. TOKYO — An officer at Yokosuka Naval Base is under investigation for purportedly writing a complaint to the base housing office about the “deviant nature” of enlisted sailors who pose a danger to his family. The letter, allegedly authored by Lt. Nathanael Allison of Naval Hospital Yokosuka, states that living in the Ikego Housing Detachment in an apartment building for enlisted families is “unacceptable.” The message, filled with spelling and grammatical errors, condemns enlisted sailors as “perverts” and accuses them of egregious behavior such as rape, involvement in drug cartels and att
