The Coast Guard is demoting and retiring a former commander of its Anchorage office who was charged with having inappropriate relationships with staff members over a period of more than 13 years.Some things are just not worth it. Junior officers - hoist this across the transom and give it a good long sniff.
The Coast Guard said Herbert M. Hamilton III will retire on July 1 as a lieutenant with a general discharge instead of undergoing a court-martial.
Hamilton was a captain when he was relieved of his Anchorage command last May.
The Coast Guard said the deal with Hamilton "is the result of a pretrial agreement and Hamilton's unsatisfactory service in the grades of captain, commander, and lieutenant commander."
