General (ret) Stephen R. Lorenz

“To every person, there comes in their lifetime that special moment when they are tapped on the shoulder and offered that chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents.

What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared and unqualified for the work that would be their finest hour.”

~ Winston Churchill

Accountability:The USS Hobson

Only Attempt to Avoid

Accountability:

The USS Hobson

26 Apr 1952

USS Wasp is recovering aircraft and must turn into the wind

USS Hobson is escorting as plane guard and screening ship

The two ships are operating at night, running with “red lights only”

“All Ahead Flank” Wasp

USS Hobson cut in two and sinks

A leader is responsible for self, people and results. Accountability is the foundation of public trust

Bow Destroyed

176 Sailors Dead

Capt makes decision to go in front of Wasp

Lt Cmdr William Tierney

“Left Rudder”

To Adjust Spacing

“Right Rudder”

To Recover Aircraft

USS Wasp

This accountability is not for intention, but for the dead. The captain of a ship, like the captain of a state, is given honor and privileges and trust beyond other men. But let him steer the wrong course, let him touch ground, let him bring disaster to his ship or to his men, and he must answer for what he has done. No matter what, he cannot escape. It is cruel, this accountability of good and well intentioned men.
