1 DEPAFITMENT OF THE NAVY CO... IlNl.lE" SECONO F~~El "PO,, O",~or. 1500I"I 5800 Ser NOOL/ SEP 11 FINAL ENDORSEMENT on RDML Clifford S. Sharpe, USN, 2 Se p 11 It r of From: To : Commander, u. s. SECOND Fleet File Subj : COMMAND INVESTIGATION INTO USS THE SULLIVANS (DOG 68) LIVE FIRE INCIDENT IN THE CHERRY POINT OPERATING AREA ON Ref : (b) RDML Report Itr of 2 Sep Subject to the below, the findings of fact, opinions, and recommendations contained in reference (b) are approved. 2. I commend the tireless efforts of RDML Clifford Sharpe, the Investigating Officer (10); the AssistanL 10, and the l egal consultant. Their efforts to produce a t imely report, in spite of a sortie of the fleet due to a hurricane, allowed Navy leadership to make decisions in time to delay THE SULLIVANS ' deployment so that she will be able to correct her deficiencies prior to operational tasking. 3. THE SULLIVANS' motto is "we stick together. " It is an apt motto because it is team work that is so essential to the safe and effective functioning of the leadership triad of the Commanding Officer, Executive Officer, and Command Ma s ter Chief. Sticking together is also essential to the Surface Warfare "101 H fundamentals, such as the firing of the main bat ter y. But fundamental does not mean "bas ic" and even the seemingly basic block a nd tackling skill- sets of surface warriors require strict adherence to tried and true practices such as ; care ful preparation of watch bills to balance senior ity a~d skills, proper watch turnover in accordance with documented requirements, proper log keeping, executing the CONOPs, clear and concise horizontal and vertical communicat ion, and employment of all available assets to aid in the understanding of the tactical environment. These practices were absent here. FOR OFF"lCIA{. USE ONLY - PRIVACY SENSITIV;;:: ANY MISUSE OR UNAUTHORIZED DI SC1,OS VRF. MAY RESULT IN BOTH CIVI L AND CRIMINAL P!::NALTlES 33

2 Subj, COMMAND INVESTIGATION INTO USS THE SULLIVANS (DDG 68) LIVE FIRE INCIDENT IN THE CHERRY POINT OPERATING AREA ON 4. Equally troubling is that the investigation revealed the participants had a tendency to not aggressively follow up on information that did n01: conform to the assumed t actical picture. The end result was the targeting of a dead-in-thewater contact when it was pre-briefed that the target would be towed at a constant C OU l~se and speed. This type of failure is the result of consensus thinking. A good team will always give voice to all members and follow up on any data that contradicts group thinking. 5. A green range may not be green for every ship in an exercise. In this case, the other participants called green range, but did not realize that THE S~LLIVANS was actually targeting a vessel other than the towed target. As lead ship in the Form 1. THE SULLIVAN'S was responsible for ensuring that every vessel in the forrr.ation knew THE SULLIVANS' intentions and which vessel it was targeting. 6. Findings of Fact (FoF) : FoF number 27, is modified to read "CDR Olson set a course for the Task Group parallel to that of a column consisting of (1) PREVAIL (TSV 1) ("PREVAIL"), (2) jet ski hulk ("the Jet Ski") towed 5000 feet behind PREVAIL, (3) an 11 meter High Speed Maneuvering Surface Target (HSMST) RHIB ("HSMST") remotely controlled from PREVAIL and followi:1.g five miles astern of PREVAIL, and (4) a IS-foot-long "Low Cost Towed Target" towed 1350 feet behind HSMST ("the Target"). [Encl. (25), (28)J 7. Actions regarding the recommendations: a. Recommendation 1 : {Il While I agree that was not derelict in his duties, I direct Co~nander, Strike Force Training Atlantic {CSFTLl to evaluate the senior mentor policy. On the morning o f the incident, a post- major command Surface Warfare Officer, departed THE SULLIVANS. Based on his expe~ience and designator, it would have been appropriate to keep him on board. who was on board PREVAIL supporting XB at the time of the incident. I did so because enclosur e 45 to reference (b) reflects that his priorities were in the wrong place and he failed to provide critical backup during the live fire e vent.

3 Subj : COMMAND INVESTIGATION INTO USS THE SULLIVANS (DOG 68) LIVE FIRE INCIDENT IN TH E CH ERRY PO I NT OPERATING AREA ON (2) I held NJP ~or THE SULLIVANS CO, awarded punishment, and reli eved him of his duties. I note here that the CO had an e xemplary record, proven in a combat zone, and there are no indications of an adverse command climate on THE SULLIVANS. In fact, the CO took command of the ship in a less than stellar material condition and turned her around. He took com:tland from a temporary CO, due to the relief of the previous CO, so he f a c e d additional obstacll~s that are nct normally present for a relieving CO. Finally, t he incident resulted f r om a p r ofessional, rather than a persona l shor tcomi ng. Ne v e r theless, the Navy Regulations placed absolute author ity a nd r esponsibility for thi s inci dent on his shoulders, and 1 held him accountable. (3) I have issued t he Executi ve Off icer an LOI, but I disapp~ove the recommendation to recor d the LOI as a s ~and -a lone document in his permanent recor d. His repor ting senior, withi n his sale discretion, may comment on the LOI o r the fac ~s l e ading up to it in his FITREP, tn accordance with applicable guidance. Recommendation l. c. is modified to read : "Issue a Let.ter of Instruction. " (4). b.

Pursuant to enclosure (1), and in accordance with reference (a), I conducted a command investigation jnto the facts and circumstances surrounding the event.s leading to US S TH E SULLIVANS (DDG 68) (SUL) firing of 5 inch rounds during a time in which the range was fouled by Fishing Vessel ZIG ZAS (" ZIG ZAG") in the Cherry Point Opera;::ing Area on :7 August This investigat.ion was initiated following a report to Commander, Strike Force Trai~ing Atlantic that SUL had accidentally mistaken ZIG ZAG for a gunnery exercise target during its Independent Deployer Certification Exercise (ID CERTEX). Enclosure (2 ) is a copy of SUL's sitrep related to this incident. 2. On 2 0 August 2011, I traveled to SUL while it was underway for 1D CERTEX. I was accompanied by my Future Operations Officer and the U. S. SECOND Fleet Deputy Fleet Judge Advocate. acted as a technical expert and my assist.ant investigating officer ("AID" ) and acted as our legal consultant. Du r ing this time I personally interviewed CDR Mark Olson, the Co~~anding Officer (CO) of SUL and his 3xecutive Officer (XO),. 3. I also personally int.erviewed who was the preliminary inquiry officer into this incident. provided me with documentation he had collected to inc:ude a number of written statements that collected the day after the incident. Some of these statements were in e -mail 3

Some of the typed statements were signed and others were unsigned. Having interviewed a :lumber of the individuals who submitted these i nitial written statements,! have no reason to question the authenticity of any of them. 4. Additionally, physically co:lected a number of witness statement s as we were preparing t o meet the helicopter to depart SUL. Although some 0: these statements are also unsigned, all are consistent with the actual witness interviews. Interviews conducted after I departed SUL on 22 August were via telephone. Associated written statements were ed to my investigation team. S. All relevant evidence was collected with the exception 0= a six-minute portion of che Combac Information Center (CIC ) surface chat logs. The Surface Warfare Coor d i nat o r ( S~WC ) chat conve~sation for 17 August 2011 was saved; however, when a copy of it was initially submitted ~o me, it was missing all conten~ between 1700 and I \O/as informed CIC could not find that content. Later during my visit to SUL, stopped and personally delivered a copy o f most of this missing chat content. t:o him. He said he heard asking various other watch stander s in eic for wacch logs a~d thought he would want to have what he provided. The chat logs are still missing the six- minute period 1700 t o This investigation noted logs used by the Bridge and CIC were inadequately maintaine!d leading up to and during the l7 August incident (VHF ( brid~le to bridge), contact log, deck log). Although inadequate logs WE!re kept, witness s t atements generally corroborated the information that was recorded in the logs in question. 7. During t he course o f t.he investiga'tion, issued cleansing warnings to the Commanding Officer and Exec~tive Officer while advising them of their rights according to O. C. M.J. Article 3lb. Enclosures ( 3) ana (4) are CDR Olson' s and Suspect: Rights Acknowledgement forrr.s. also delivered a cleansing warning t o ("SUWC, SOL") and advised him of his rights.
