HOT-SHOT CHIEF OF BOAT FIRED BY SKIPPER
What torpedoed the career of the hot-shot chief of boat on the trouble-plagued USS Louisville? "The silence is deafening," says a veteran submarine crew member.
AN "AFFIRMATIVE-ACTION" COB
Patel, said by some to be a classic example of "affirmative action" promotion of junior sailors into positions they are not prepared to fill, had been made chief of the boat after only 12.5 years in the Navy. He assumed his duties on the Louisville 18 months ago, in the wake of a scandal that saw the boat's previous COB busted on sex charges.
