The commanding officer of a Boston Coast Guard unit has been fired for what the service calls a loss of confidence in his ability to lead.
Capt. Michael Husak was temporarily removed from command of Coast Guard Base Support Unit Boston on Tuesday by Rear Adm. Ronald Rabago, the Coast Guard’s assistant commandant for engineering and logistics.
Capt. Husak has a history of blaming sexual assault victims, intimidating them and doing all he can to obstruct justice. His abuse against rape survivors often continued long after they leave the service. As reported first on MST news one survivor reported being forbidden to enter Boston Coast Guard base for an Auxiliary meeting because she was a victim of rape.
Husak, a 1984 Coast Guard Academy graduate, has been reassigned to the academy pending the results of an administrative investigation, according to a news release. A service spokesman declined further comment.
The executive officer of BSU Boston, Cmdr. Tobiah Taylor, has assumed temporary command of the unit.
BSU Boston handles functions such as buildings and ground maintenance, environmental management and security for shore units, ships and boats.
