A Navy panel on Wednesday said the former commander of a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier who produced raunchy videos aboard the USS Enterprise can remain in the Navy.
The Navy on Thursday censured four senior officers of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise and cautioned dozens of junior officers and enlisted sailors over lewd videos made several years ago on the ship to entertain the crew.
Navy Capt. Owen P. Honors, removed from command of one of the Navy's most powerful warships and under investigation for ribald videos made to amuse his crew, is getting moral support from an unexpected quarter — gay sailors who served under his command.
The captain of the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Enterprise has been removed from his command because of videos he made several years ago containing foul language, sexual innuendo and anti-gay slurs.
"Over the years, I've had several complaints about the inappropriate content of these videos, never to me personally, but gutlessly through other channels," he says.
All three of the videos posted, which the Virginian-Pilot says were made with Navy public affairs personnel and equipment, begin with a disclaimer: "As usual, the admiral and the captain have no idea about the contents of the video or the movie this evening, and they should not be held accountable in any judicial setting," says Capt. Honors.
