The Navy admiral tells an enlisted man to do something..scrub the deck, move his troops into formation etc.
The enlisted man refuses, and sneers at the admiral...suddenly he is in deep doo-doo..
That's called "chain of command", and the admiral should be even more aware of it, than an EM.
The admiral thumbs his nose at his C-in-C...he's in deep doo-doo ! That's "chain of command"..simple isn't it !
I see it as deeper than that, and more nefarious. CPO Gallager was pronounced NOT GUILTY back in June.
Being found not guilty, his job, rank and pay should have been restored the next day !
This game of pulling his trident didn't come up until just a few days ago, when the president reinstated what should
have been reinstated back in June. Looks like a grudge to me !
