After only seven months leading the US Navy’s Fifth fleet, Vice Admiral Vice Admiral Scott Stearney – who led the American Navy presence in the Middle East from its base in Bahrain – has been found dead in his residence, the Navy announced Saturday evening.
Stearney, a Chicago native and graduate of the University of Notre Dame, assumed control of the fleet from Vice Adm. John C. Aquilino back in May after Aquilino had served in the role for only eight months. He was in his late fifties at the time of his death.

Ships that were part of the fleet has been involved in several confrontations with Iranian ships since, though they’ve received far less media attention….
