NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — An investigative report shows the commander of a Maryland squadron that flies Navy leaders in corporate-style jets was fired from the job after she acknowledged falsifying records that said an evaluator was present during simulator training that she had undergone.
Cmdr. Corrine Parker was removed from the post in April.
The Navy report obtained by The Associated Press through the Freedom of Information Act says Parker wrote that she was under pressure to get a certification done before picking up some unidentified passengers from a Pearl Harbor 70th anniversary commemoration in Hawaii. She wrote she had no intent to falsify her paperwork, but her judgment was clouded.
Among others, Parker’s squadron is responsible for providing transportation for the Navy secretary, chief of naval operations and commandant of the Marine Corps.
