Navy Captain Censured Over Deadly Vehicle Sinking Will Be Given Another Command

Recommended Posts

The Navy is giving a captain previously censured over the fatal sinking of an amphibious assault vehicle, or AAV, another chance at command.

Capt. John Kurtz, previously the commanding officer of the USS Somerset -- the ship that launched the doomed craft -- has been recommended to take command of an aircraft carrier sometime between October 2023 and September 2024, according to a recently released Navy memo.
