Navy looking into it | Corrected
September 18, 2012 · Updated 9:39 AM
We value the strong relationship we share with the surrounding community that supports our personnel.
As an integral part of the Whidbey Island community, we are aware of a specific inappropriate statement resulting from a recent commentary published by the Whidbey News-Times and we are looking into the matter along with the local authorities.
The men and women of the Naval Air Station Whidbey Island strive to uphold the Navy’s core values of Honor, Courage and Commitment, both at work and in our community. The Navy does not condone any sort of threatening behavior that would impede a person’s right to express an opinion.
As stated previously, any additional comments about the ongoing investigation would be inappropriate.
Capt. Jay Johnston,
NAS Whidbey Island
