Navy docks warship's skipper for having too much fun at Russia stop11/5/2012
Looks as if shore leave can take a toll on captains and not just their crews. The U.S. Navy has relieved Cmdr. Joseph E. Darlak of his duties aboard the USS Vandegrift for taking too many boozy liberties when the ship docked in Vladivostok, Russia, in September. The ship's lieutenant commander, chief engineer and operations officer have also been reassigned, though the Navy released no details of their transgressions. Darlak had touted the visit on the 7th Fleet's Facebook page, noting how pleased he was to "experience all the city has to offer." Guess he should have experienced a little less of it. [Source]
