TRUTH !!
In 1943, while serving as a Lieutenant, (J.G.) Hubbard ordered his men to fire four 3-inch
caliber rounds at a floating pyramid target, unaware of the land mass behind it.
Fortunately for him, the Coronados Islands were not inhabited, and there were no
casualties. Nevertheless, The commanding Admiral wrote in Hubbard's fitness report
that he was "lacking in the essential qualities of judgment, leadership, and cooperation"
and so relieved him of duties.
