Navy Drops Criminal Charges Against Officers In USS Fitzgerald Collision Case


Recommended Posts

The U.S. Navy is set to drop all criminal charges against two officers following the fatal collision that killed seven sailors aboard the USS Fitzgerald as the destroyer was on a secret mission.

The decision ends a years-long legal battle in which the Navy blamed Cmdr. Bryce Benson and Lt. Natalie Combs, among others, for what it determined was an "avoidable" accident caused, in part, by numerous leadership failures. But the move is also likely to end their naval careers. https://www.npr.org/2019/04/11/712427067/navy-drops-criminal-charges-against-officers-in-uss-fitzgerald-collision-case
