The Bonhomme Richard Fire--Accountability

"The most serious actions focused on the leadership of the warship and the fire response team. The ship's former commanding officer, Capt. Gregory Scott Thorman, and former executive officer, Capt. Michael Ray received punitive letters of reprimand and forfeiture of pay. The former command master chief, Jose Hernandez, received a punitive letter of reprimand.

The Consolidated Disposition Authority, which decides upon punishments, was led by Admiral Samuel Paparo, the commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet.
Vice Admiral Richard Brown, the retired officer who was the commander of the U.S. Pacific Fleet at the time, received a Secretarial Letter of Censure from Navy Secretary Carlos Del Toro." More on Brown can be read here.
Seaman Recruit Ryan Mays remains pending investigation and court-martial.
