It seems that Rear Admiral Jeffrey A. Harley, president, U.S. Naval War College, has found himself in a bit of hot water.
The military is investigating the president of the U.S. Naval War College amid allegations that he spent excessively, abused his hiring authority and otherwise behaved inappropriately, including keeping a margarita machine in his office.
Multiple current and former college employees said they have raised serious concerns for over a year about Rear Adm. Jeffrey Harley’s conduct at the helm of the elite school that grooms future admirals and generals.
Dozens of emails and other documents obtained by the AP show the college has struggled to make payroll under Harley’s leadership and spent about $725,000 annually on raises while facing an annual shortfall of $5 million or more.
Harley has also sent a series of emails to hundreds of students, faculty and staff that raised eyebrows, including offers of “free hugs” and games of Twister in his office.
Come on people! Can’t we find something better to ruin a person’s career over? Margarita Machine??? The Naval War College is in NEWPORT, RI. Ever heard of it? This place is party town USA. Damn right Admiral Harley has a margarita machine. His office is west facing right on Narragansett Bay. I don’t need to tell you about the amazing sunsets he gets to enjoy each night. It should be mandatory that he enjoys a frozen margarita at sundown!
And free hugs? Who doesn’t love free hugs?
Well ok, the Twister games in his office might be a little creepy.
PS – If anyone wants to buy me a Margarita Machine, I’ll take this one!
