I would like to comment on the article regarding the Navy and myself ("Reprimanded Navy Doctor Cites Example of Waste," July 4). Unfortunately the story missed the point entirely. The real issue, besides the waste of $25,000, was the abuse of the system. Linda Monroe didn't mention the fact that the servicewoman worked for Adm. (Edward) Baker and thus received preferential treatment. In addition, (the story) seems to suggest that Dr. (Carl) Hartrampf (Jr.) "turned down" this patient when in fact the only reason we couldn't (operate on)

Retired Rear Adm. Wayne E. Meyer, who was known as the "Father of Aegis," the Navy's primary air-defense weapon system that revolutionized how the Navy performed air defense, has died. He was 83. Meyer, who managed the development and early building of the Aegis system and later had an Aegis-equipped destroyer named after him, died of heart failure Tuesday at a hospital in Washington, D.C., said his son James. Meyer had been director of engineering at the Naval Ship Missile Systems Engineering Station in Port Hueneme before he was recalled to Washington and reported to the Naval Ordnance Systems Command as Aegis Weapon System manager in 1970.

The U.S. Navy has grounded a fleet of helicopter drones after two of the aircraft crashed overseas within a week. The robotic spy chopper used by the Navy, known as a MQ-8B Fire Scout, was developed by Northrop Grumman Corp. engineers in Rancho Bernardo. It was first deployed to war zones in Afghanistan and Libya last year. In the first incident, the Navy said a Fire Scout crashed off the coast of Africa on March 30 after it was unable to land on the Navy frigate Simpson at the end of a surveillance mission.

Kenny Tate stopped Ricky Dobbs at the goal line with 34 seconds left, and Maryland stunned in-state rival Navy, 17-14, on Monday at Baltimore to break a seven-game losing streak that began last October. The Midshipmen (0-1) held the ball for nearly 19 minutes longer than Maryland (0-1) and outgained the Terrapins by more than 200 yards. But in a game influenced by untimely turnovers and huge penalties, the outcome was decided on a gritty goal-line stand. Trailing 17-14 with a fourth down at the one, Navy decided to go for the win. Dobbs took the snap, went to his left and was met by Tate, who would not relent to the momentum Dobbs brought to the line.

Robert Ehnow and Joanne Loehr, owners of Poway-based companies, were convicted Monday of showering Navy officials with gifts and cash in exchange for millions of dollars in payments for work supposedly done on planes at the Fleet Readiness Center. Loehr's firm, Centerline Industrial Inc., also was convicted.

The U.S. Navy is resuming its program of targeting old war vessels and sinking them into deep ocean waters during military exercises, a practice that it suspended because of environmental complaints. Three ships will soon be targeted by a variety of weapons and sunk off the coast of Hawaii as part of the Rim of the Pacific naval exercises, or RIMPAC, which began on Monday, a Navy spokesman said in a telephone interview with the Los Angeles Times. RIMPAC, which lasts for five weeks, features training exercises for thousands of military personnel from almost two dozen nations.

Manti Te'o, Notre Dame's starting senior linebacker, had a big day as the Fighting Irish routed Navy in Dublin, Ireland. Te'o had six tackles, an interception and a recovered a fumble as Notre Dame opened with a 50-10 victory. That just goes to show that USC could be better. The Trojans, who open at 4:30 p.m. Saturday as the No. 1-ranked team in the Associated Press media poll and No. 3 in the USA Today coaches' poll, heavily recruited Te'o and reportedly barely lost out to the Fighting Irish.

There is perhaps no greater American monument to the War in the Pacific than Ford Island in Hawaii's Pearl Harbor. The naval base there with its old hangars, runway and control tower - some still showing damage from the Japanese attack that brought the United States into World War II - is on the National Register of Historic Places. Dotted around the island's 450 acres are memorials to the battleships Arizona, Utah and Oklahoma, which were sunk. Docked near the Arizona's submerged hull is the Missouri, the legendary battlewagon and scene of Japan's formal surrender on Sept.
