USS Boxer Water Incident Prompts House Lawmakers to Call for Navy Accountability

Recommended Posts

A group of House lawmakers is demanding answers and accountability from the Navy in the wake of an exclusive Military.com report that found that the USS Boxer sickened its own crew by intentionally dumping fuel into the ocean.

In a Wednesday letter obtained by Military.com, four House members of the California delegation and a senior member of the Armed Services Committee asked Navy Secretary Carlos Del Toro to "hold accountable those responsible for this incident." They also urged Del Toro to brief Congress on the Navy response to the contamination incident in 2016.
