ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Michael Miller, a former U.S. Naval Academy superintendent, will retire next month after being reprimanded by the Navy as part of an investigation into a bribery and fraud scandal.
The Navy announced Miller’s retirement grade determination Friday. He will retire Aug. 1 at the rank of vice admiral, the same rank he held as superintendent.
The grade determination was first reported by The Annapolis Capital.
Miller announced his retirement last July, after four years as superintendent. His retirement was postponed a year, because of the investigation into Navy contracts for port services in southeast Asia where he commanded Carrier Strike Group 7. He has been working as a special assistant at the academy.
Miller was reprimanded in January with two other officers for improperly accepting gifts from a “prohibited source.”
