Re: US Navy ship strikes reef because of incorrect charts

Incorrectly mapped or not, I bet its a career ender for that Captain.

Sux if the map he had was incorrect but that's pretty much the way of the Military.

Even if he's absolved it will be a unoffical black mark on his record that will eventually put him behind his peers.
