The three-star director of the Navy staff was fired last Friday for providing “false and misleading information” during a Defense Department inspector general investigation, the Navy’s top spokesman confirmed Monday.
Vice Adm. John “Boomer” Stufflebeem was relieved by Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Gary Roughead due to the testimony Stufflebeem gave during the investigation, said Rear Adm. Frank Thorp, the Navy’s chief of information.
OK, one comment. During the CNO pool this past summer, Stufflebeem was actually floated as a contender. People whose opinion I respect thought well of him. So, I feel this is unfortunate all around.
