The President added: “I have directed the Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer & Chief of Naval Operations John Richardson, with immediate effect, to withdraw from the contract awards”are awarded.

Three lieutenants-George O. Hageman, Brian P., John and Scott, I., McDonald’s, and a female officer, whose rank and name were redacted by the Navy, the Navy Achievement received medals, only eight days after Gallagher was found not guilty on all but one charge.
