THE "CURSE OF THE COWPENS" CONTINUES
© 2014 MilitaryCorruption.com
There's an old saying in the military that "a woman's ass and a whiskey glass made a horse's ass out of me."
Well, Navy CAPT Greg Gombert may not be a boozer, but the former skipper of the USS Cowpens blew his career by going nuts over a "smoking hot babe" junior officer. Her name is Destiny Savage (we can't make this stuff up) and she's the exact opposite of lizard-skinned "Horrible Holly Graf" who made a habit out of throttling male subordinate officers.
More about that man-hater later.
Just suffice it to say, Savage is a knockout, while Graf was, and probably still is, as ugly as sin. Grab the barf bag, gang.
THE HORNY CAPTAIN AND THE "HOT BABE"
Gombert was a well-liked doofus, non-threatening to his crew, until he got "the hots" for his engineering officer, and appointed the lieutenant commander to the all-important post of XO while he, the skipper, retreated to his cabin.
The Naval ROTC grad supposedly had a case of the flu, at least that was the "official story." Eyebrows were raised when Destiny literally moved into the captain's quarters, and crew members later spotted them holding hands on deck, looking "goo-goo eyes" at each other.
At various ports of call, the duo would go off together. We're sure it wasn't to play checkers.
THE CMC FAILED IN HIS RESPONSIBILITY
A frustrated crew tried to get the command master chief to report the blatant fraternization to higher headquarters, but nothing happened. "She literally was the captain," said a frustrated chief petty officer. "Savage doesn't have the know-how to command a guided-missile cruiser. She put the entire crew at risk."
Apparently the top brass - when they finally got wind of the situation - agreed.
Gombert and his gal pal faced admiral's mast on July 25, and while the 0-6 and his alleged lover were nailed for fraternization and disobeying orders, only the male skipper was fired. Destiny Savage is still serving in the Navy.
A NEW CAREER FOR DESTINY?
If she later gets the boot, we suggest she apply to PLAYBOY for a "women of the Navy" spread - maybe even the centerfold itself. There could be a whole new career ahead for the young woman who posed for other pictures we have seen, but decided not to print in this "family" publication.
She is no shrinking violet. That's just the kind of gal we need here at MilitaryCorruption.com. Hey, Destiny . . . how'd you like to write for us? We bet there's many in the Fleet who would want to "read all about it."
Judging from our mail. there's a lot of sailors out there who want to see a lot more of you.
THE COWPEN'S "CURSE" CONTINUES
As for the curse of the Cowpens, God help the next skipper.
We all know about Horrible Holly - she even makes that haggard harpy Hillary Clinton look like a demure nun - and of course, now Gombert.
But there was another captain of the cruiser who stepped on his dick. We reported that sometime last year. CAPT Robert G. Marin was sacked after he was caught banging the wife of a fellow officer.
Well, at least it wasn't the frau of an enlisted member. We've seen that before, especially in the Army.
