This falls in the category of adding insult to injury. Not even close to being the worst of the Navy’s problems, but strangely indicative of the toxic environment of the Navy today.
Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Steven Giordano is supposed to be ADVOCATING tor the Navy’s enlisted sailors. Evidently, he thinks the lower enlisted are there to kiss (and wipe) his ass. Abuse of staff and abuse of office. And now he is under investigation by the Navy’s Inspector General.
While this doesn’t make the top 10 of Navy scandals, just another embarrassment in a long line of embarrassments for the Navy.
This guy hits two years as MCPON this fall. I think the Chief of Naval Operations needs to personally talk to this guy and tell him to submit his retirement papers. He definitely does not need to be extended two more years as MCPON.
Giordano, your office may have the billet of a Vice Admiral, but you personally are STILL an enlisted person. No set of china or personal cook for you.
