GROTON, Conn. — The commander of the Naval Submarine Base has ordered a review of alcohol served on the base following an investigation into allegations that the highest-ranking enlisted person drank for several hours at a club on the base and argued loudly with his wife at a local bar.
http://www.theday.com/article/20121115/NWS09/311159529/1018">The Day of New London reports that the Navy's investigation it obtained in a Freedom of Information Act request resulted in no charges being brought against Command Master Chief Thomas Vatter, and local police were never involved.
But Capt. Marc W. Denno, the base commander, said the incident did not set a good example for junior sailors.
Vatter said the investigation did not compromise his ability to serve in a leadership role. He told The Day he was not relieved of his duties but chose to retire.
