It's happened again. For the third time in less than ten days, a Navy commanding officer has been fired. This time, it's the boss of the Navy's Telecommunications Station in Bahrain.

CMDR Mary Ann Giese was just days from turning over command to a new leader when she was suddenly relieved by order of Rear Adm. Edward Deets II, C.O. of the Naval Network Warfare Command. She is the 13th commander to "walk the plank" since the beginning of the year.

A 1992 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Giese was accused of having a number of "inappropriate relationships" with subordinates which caused the admiral to "lose confidence" in her ability to hold command.

NAVY WON"T COMMENT ON WHAT KIND OF "INAPPROPRIATE" RELATIONS EXISTED AT BAHRAIN

The 40 year-old computer science and space systems expert has been reassigned to administrative duties at Bahrain, pending transfer elsewhere. She had held command since January 2009, and had less than a week to go before moving on to another assignment. Now, she awaits her fate. Giese has 18 years in the Navy.

A spokesman, commenting on the sudden firing, said Giese's actions "were significant enough to warrant removing her from command immediately." Any hopes Giese had of making captain 0-6 are gone.

No details of just what kind of "relationships" CMDR Giese allegedly had have been released, such as if they included Naval personnel of both genders.

OVER OCS GRADUATES

"I feel sick to my stomach every time I hear about something like this," former LCDR Syneeda Penland (see "related stories box" below) told MilitaryCorruption.com. "I lost my pension and career after being sent to the brig for adultery. These people (Giese, Graf, Lisa Nowak) are all USNA graduates. No matter what they have done, I'll bet they get to keep at least part of their pension."

Penland, an African-American, is the only Naval officer we ever heard of who was convicted at court-martial of "adultery" and did hard time for it. She has now moved away from San Diego to be close to her immediate family. The 38 year-old OCS graduate is battling poor health and hoping for proper medical care from the VA.

"As someone who rose from the enlisted ranks, and came within a few months of qualifying for a 20-year active duty retirement, it hurts so much to know that the old 'double-standard of justice' in the Navy is just as bad as ever."
