    Navy sailor charged for fire that wrecked USS Bonhomme Richard.....

    Charges were brought against a Navy sailor in connection to a fire that was set on the USS Bonhomme Richard last year.


    The unnamed sailor, who was charged on Thursday, was a member of the crew at the time of the fire, which was set on July 12, 2020.



    “Evidence collected during the investigation is sufficient to direct a preliminary hearing in accordance with due process under the military justice system,” he added.


    Vice Adm. Steve Koehler, commander of the U.S. 3rd Fleet, is weighing court martial charges. He has also directed a hearing to take place in which an impartial hearing officer will make determinations and recommendations regarding the case, as required under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.



    The Navy decommissioned the amphibious assault ship that raged in flames for days in San Diego Harbor last summer. Officials assessed that it would cost $3 billion and take up to seven years to restore the 22-year-old ship.


    Sixty-three personnel, including 40 sailors and 23 civilians, were treated for minor injuries, including heat exhaustion and smoke inhalation related to the fire and the attempt to quell the flames.....snip~

    Lets hope the evidence is rock solid. If it is.....then give him the maximum penalty.

    Damn.

    I know that ship. I served on that ship briefly. Tragedy to scrap it.

    The charge is Arson. It makes you wonder what the motivation would be.

    depending on if they court martial him, he could see a rather lengthy stay in a military graybar on the military's dime.
    If it was wartime, he could be executed, but that hasn't happened since WWII.

    If found guilty, he needs to be hanged.

    Not even taking into account the monetary damage and the injuries sustained among the crew while trying to extinguish the fire, the arsonist put a US Navy warship out of commission. This affects our national defense posture and weakens the Navy's ability to defend this nation.

    For that, he should be hanged.

    Perhaps someone felt Entitled to special treatment or advancement they failed to get and had their revenge?

    I see that as a major problem in today's Military!
