Cmdr. Sheryl Tannahill, commanding officer of Navy Operational Support Center Nashville, Tenn., was relieved of command Sept. 14 by Capt. George Whitbred, commander of Navy Region Midwest Reserve Component Command, because of a loss of confidence in her ability to command.
"The relief occurred in the course of an on-going investigation into allegations of a possible unduly familiar relationship between Tannahill and a sailor formerly under her command at the NOSC," said Cmdr. Tom Cotton, spokesman for the Navy Reserve Forces Command. "Tannahill has been temporarily reassigned to the staff of Commander, Navy Region Midwest Reserve Component Command in Great Lakes, Ill."

Food for thought: It was recently brought to my attention that Sheryl Tannahill is still serving on active duty. WOW, this further proves my point that rank and race played a huge role in my case, besides being a whistleblower. Meanwhile, the Department of Justice would rather represent the Secretary of the Navy in my Civil Action suit against the Navy; rather than pursue an investigation into the misconduct of senior Pentagon officials for their involvement in defense contract bid rigging, revolving door practices and other Anti-trust violations. These particular facts are outlined in the later chapter of my memoir, "Broken Silence, A Military's Fight for Justice."
