Panel to Analyze Naval Academy

Associated Press

A panel that includes the former commander of U.S. forces in Europe and the Navy's first black four-star admiral will spend six months analyzing the scandal-plagued Naval Academy.

The academy, reeling from a year of scandals ranging from murder to car theft, said every facet of its operations will be examined.

The panel includes the Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, former University of Notre Dame president; retired Army Gen. John R. Galvin, former commander in chief of U.S. forces in Europe; and Adm. J. Paul Reason, commander in chief of the Atlantic fleet who was named the Navy's first black four-star admiral last May, the Baltimore Sun reported Thursday.

The 18-member review board will meet for the first time Jan. 23.
