Yesterday was the change of command at the Coast Guard Academy in New London. Rear Admiral Scott Burhoe replaced Rear Admiral James Van Sice as superintendent of the academy on Friday.
From the Stanford Advocate and the Associated Press:
Van Sice, 54, was supposed to be transferred from the academy to Coast Guard headquarters in Washington, D.C., to serve as the director of personnel management, but instead announced his retirement on Friday, saying he and his wife, Clarke, had changed their plans.I wonder if that decision came after a heart-to-heart with The Boss?
"There comes a time in everyone's career when it's time to start a new chapter. Clarke and I have decided our time has come, and I have asked to retire," he said.
Anyway, I'm so surprised at this turn of events that you could knock me over with a feather brush.
Now we wait to see what the Academy task force says in their soon-to-be-released report.
