Get out your scorecard, gang. The Navy just fired it's 16th commanding officer in 2011. At this rate, a new record will be set this year. Perhaps even before the month of August is over.

There were 17 skippers relieved of command in 2010, including the infamous "Horrible Holly" Graf, still sucking up captain's pay more than a year and a half after the screaming shrew (Naval Academy, Class of 1985) was canned for "cruelty and maltreatment of her crew."

Only, the well-connected Graf - sister is a rear admiral and daddy a retired four-striper - has stuck around long after she should have walked the plank. Sources say the leather-skinned shrieker, who aspired to be a flag officer, is being allowed to accumulate taxpayers' dollars as a sort of "consolation prize" for not making admiral - at least not right away.

For every year she stays on active duty, "Horrible Holly" can add 2.5% more to her fat monthly retirement check. Must be nice - for her - to be so favored over everyone else.

16 COMMANDERS CANNED SO FAR THIS YEAR

The latest officer to be fired is Navy Commander Robert E. Brown.

A former enlisted sailor, Brown was commissioned through the Naval Reserve Training Corps in 1992. He has 26 years of military service.

Rear Admiral Dave Thomas, boss of Naval Surface Force Atlantic, issued the usual boilerplate: "I have lost confidence in (Brown's) ability to command."

The Navy isn't saying much about what Brown supposedly did, except that he allegedly "misused" equipment and engaged in "improper disposal of govt. property."

The former C.O. of Beachmaster Unit 2 has been reassigned to desk duty. Capt. Michael Ott will take Brown's place until a new commander can be found for the Little Creek, Va.-based unit.
