On the fateful day of February 9, 2001, Commander Scott Waddle’s life was forever changed. He gave the order to perform an emergency surface maneuver that inadvertently caused the nine-thousand ton submarine USS Greeneville to collide with the Ehime Maru, a 500 ton Japanese fishing vessel, off the coast of Hawaii. Nine people onboard the Ehime Maru were killed in the incident. Against the advice of his attorney and the Navy’s direction, Waddle took responsibility for the accident and it changed his life.
