We thought to start the New Year on a lighter note.
It was the week before Christmas. The scene was a courtroom at the Headquarters of the First Naval District, in Boston. I was a young Navy JAG officer defending a petty officer on the serious charge of sabotaging his ship by pouring five gallons of battery acid into its motor – an act that disabled the ship for over a year. My client and his co-defendants had been heard to express the wish that the ship not sail on its next mission. Misplaced containers of battery acid had been found in inappropriate places in the crew’s quarters. Things were looking bleak. Also, there was the confession.
