Honors Fights Move to End Navy Career

The former commander of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise now faces a board of inquiry to recommend whether his Navy career should end over the raunchy and sophomoric videos he created as the executive officer aboard the Enterprise a number of years ago.  Captain Owen (O.P.) Honors is the subject of a website supporting his efforts to remain in the Navy.  Contrary to the insinuation in the article that a board of inquiry is like a court-martial, a board of inquiry cannot result in a federal conviction, nor a dismissal (punitive discharge for officers) from the service.
