WEB Notes: Prayers certainly go out to this family. I have to say I always find these things odd when we hear about high ranking officers taking their own lives. What is noteworthy here is this Admiral was over the 5th Fleet which is based out of Bahrain, operating in various locations including the “Strait of Hormuz and the Suez Canal”. Those are Iran’s waters, it makes you wonder.

Vice Adm. Scott Stearney, who oversaw U.S. naval forces in the Middle East, was found dead Saturday in his residence in Bahrain, officials said. Defense officials told CBS News they are calling it an “apparent suicide.”

Stearney was the commander of the U.S. Navy’s Bahrain-based 5th Fleet. Rear Adm. Paul Schlise, the deputy commander of the 5th Fleet, has assumed command, the Navy said in a statement.

“This is devastating news for the Stearney family, for the team at 5th Fleet, and for the entire U.S. Navy,” Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson said. “Scott Stearney was a decorated Naval warrior. He was a devoted husband and father, and he was a good friend to all.”
