    Re: USS Fitzgerald collision with container ship

    The Captain has lost his command, no matter what.  Even if he was 100% in the right, the Navy does not tolerate it's ships being damaged.  Further, in this case, there was loss of life.  That's an unforgivable lapse in command. 

    Did the captain of the Fitzgerald breach the Articles of War (or whatever the relevant document is called)?

    Admiral John Byng breached the Articles and suffered the ultimate penalty on 14th March 1757.  It has been suggested that this is why the Royal Navy was so successful in subsequent years.
