Ex-Blue Angels leader condoned activity that violated Navy policy alleges complaint

The Blue Angels are the Navy precision flying aerobatics team that travels the world performing at air shows. The former commander of the Blue Angles, Captain Gregory McWherter, has found himself in hot water lately for allegedly condoning an inappropriate work environment reports USA Today.

This work environment is said to have possibly violated the sexual harassment and hazing policies of the US Navy. The former commander led the Blue Angels squadron for almost four years from 2008 until 2012. He was terminated as executive officer of the Naval Base Coronado in San Diego last week and reassigned to other duties during the investigation.

"All Navy leaders, whether assigned to a highly visible unit like the 'Blues,' or to our installations, squadrons, ships and submarines, are held to the highest standards, Vice Admiral David Buss, commander of the Navy air forces, said in the statement. "The Navy expects everyone, from those officers in command positions to sailors on the waterfront, to provide principled and highly ethical leadership, stressing discipline, accountability, and the importance of treating shipmates with dignity and respect."

The investigation began after a complaint that claimed, "lewd speech, inappropriate comments, and sexually explicit humor were allowed in the workplace and in some case encouraged by the commanding officer."

The complaint also says that pornographic images were displayed in the workplace and shared in electronic communications. Some of McWherter's former personnel have stepped in and taken up for him. One soldier, Michael Hoffman said, "He would never allow that. If anything like that happened, his would shut it down. I saw him do that: step in and take care of it."

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
