Riverines returned for reintegration/debrief...via USNI News.

via USNI News.
The 10 Navy sailors who were detained by Iran have returned to San Diego to be reunited with their families and continue debriefings in a Navy investigation.
The Coastal Riverine Squadron 3 sailors are in good health and will soon complete the final phase of their “reintegration” after being held by the Iranian naval forces from Jan. 12 to 13. In that final phase which can last several days, sailors reunite with their families, continue debriefings, and receive any ongoing medical care and support as necessary, according to a Navy statement.
“Our sailors are being reintegrated with dignity and professionalism,” Rear Adm. Frank Morneau, Commander of Navy Expeditionary Combat Command, said in the statement.
“My top priority is the health, welfare and well-being of our shipmates as they return to duty.”
The Navy is acting as if this is a POW situation and not a simple detention.  I wonder what we're not being jump thru all these hoops for a "simple navigation error" seems to be a bit over the top.

Additionally the guys from the Small Boats tribe (Lee Wahler is one of them) has been VERY quiet on this incident.  What do they know that they're not telling us.
