|Vice Admiral David Bennett
Commander Naval Surface Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet (December 1990 - November 1992)
David M. Bennett served more than thirty-five years of active service in the U.S. Navy. He served as Commander Naval Surface Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet from December 1990 to November 1992. He was detailed prematurely from his tour of duty at COMNAVSURFPAC because he was nominated by President Bush to serve as Inspector General, Department of the Navy, in Washington, D.C. to resolve some big problems and set the Navy back on course after the “Tailhook” scandal.
