    CG Commander Sacked Amid Porn Allegations

    The senior officer of a West Coast-based Coast Guard command was sacked Friday over allegations he had used a government computer to surf the Web for pornographic material and browse other "restricted" sites.

    Captain Fredrick G. Myer was relieved as commander of the U.S. Coast Guard Sector Portland, Ore., and reassigned to the 13th Coast Guard District staff pending a final disciplinary ruling by Coast Guard Commandant Adm. Robert Papp, the service said in a July 12 release.

    "The decision to relieve a commanding officer is never easy and is taken very seriously," said Rear Adm. Gary Blore, the commander of the Coast Guard's 13th District, which includes the Portland sector.

    "We take the Service's core values of honor, respect and devotion to duty as guiding principles of our personal and professional conduct."

    The Portland sector is based on Swan Island, Ore., and covers operations from the Salmon River in Idaho to the Oregon and Washington coasts.

    According to the Coast Guard, Myer was found to have "repeatedly viewed pornographic material and other restricted internet sites" on his government computer, though it is unclear whether this alleged activity was done at the office or off-site.

    The Coast Guard has temporarily replaced Myer with Capt. Leonard Tumbarello, formerly the deputy commander of the Coast Guard's Seattle district.

    This is the second controversial firing by Blore so far this year after he relieved former Seattle District commander Capt. Suzanne Englebert in April because of an "unacceptable command climate." The service also sacked Capt. James O'Connor, the commander of the Coast Guard air station in Sacramento, Calif., in March over a "loss of confidence" in his ability to command.

    The Portland Oregonian reported that the investigation into Myer's computer use was launched after internal monitors caught the alleged unauthorized browsing in April.

    "When any service member violates these core values they must be held accountable, especially our commanding officers," Blore added. "This action, while unfortunate and difficult, is in the long term best interest of the unit and the Service."
