[T]here’s a time-honored tradition in the U.S. Navy — and they’re all about tradition – but it appears the Obama administration cares little for it.
Per the Washington Times, “As the Obama administration this week named another warship after a politician, a new report is circulating in Congress that shows that nearly 200 Navy and Marine Corps Medal of Honor recipients have never been awarded such an honor, contrary to naval guidelines and tradition.
Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, who has named several ships after Democrats and liberal activists not connected to the military, was in Detroit on Monday to announce that an Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer will be named the USS Carl M. Levin….
Mr. Levin did not serve in the military….
The Levin naming did not conform to Mr. Mabus’ own guidelines set out in a report to Congress in 2012 called “Policies and Practices of the U.S. Navy for Naming the Vessels of the Navy.”
