    First of all, The commandant didn't resign, He was in his job for 4 years like every other commandant before him. The new commandant and vice commandant are hand picked by congress. As with all other services in the very senior leadership department. Do a little research before you decide to post about something you have no clue about except what the news "rumors".

    I think I am going to watch this battle of knowledge regarding Coast Guard politics play out between jack and slic. This could get interesting. I must admit I would like to know each persons source of knowledge.

    Slic, I really and truly could care less if you like my tone or not, you should quit posting rumors from what you heard from the news.

    It's the other way around, congress picks who will be the future leaders of the Coast Guard are going to be and the President affirms their picks.

    You are correct it is a 4 year term. Guess what any job in the military can be changed at will. It's just that when your in that high ranking of a position it is on the President who relieves them.

    If you would do a little more research you would have known that Admiral Allen is still the Incident Commander for the gulf coast oil spill. So that kinda makes the whole situation that your trying to explain a WAY off. Because he wasn't fired. Only relieved from his job after completing his four year tour.

    Lets get it straight guys. The President appoints the Commandant for a four year term upon confirmation by the United States Senate. HMB

    My question about the spill.

    We have a catastrophy of epic perportions.

    7 weeks and counting.

    SO...........

    At what point should that oil become salvage for anyone that wants to,

    Can recover it?

    and

    sell it at market price!

    Al
