Gina and I are in DC to spend the Easter holiday with our sons and their families. I’ll return to active posting next week.
In January, I reported preliminary results of the Navy Inspector General’s inspection of the Naval History and Heritage Command. In that post, I repeated alarms raised by the newspaper Navy Times that conditions – both working and material – at the Command and its subsidiaries were less than ideal.
The IG’s report has now been released: 8 pages of Executive Summary, 64 pages of formal report with appendix. A brief perusal of the report suggests that a goodly part of it deals with arcane Naval administrative matters like the sexual harassment training program at the Command. For the rest, I plan to digest the report in detail over the weekend and report the essence of material relating to historical and archival material under the Command’s purview next week.
In the nonce, best wishes of this holiday season.
