Also, Frank Fletcher after two less then good performances at Coral sea and Midway was removed as task force commander and never got a job again as a TF commander. He commanded the landings on Tulagi-Guadalcanal, our first major offensive and the largest USN operation in the Pacific to date. He was relieved after the Eastern Solomons, the third successful carrier battle under his command. He was criticized for withdrawing the carriers after the Guadalcanal landing and for what many considered excessive caution on various occasions. I understand Fletcher's reluctance to have the carriers linger off Guadalcanal. After Midway we still had bare parity with the Japanese in carriers; we didn't need to expose ours to attack when there was no opportunity to inflict attrition on theirs. However it should have been properly coordinated, ideally during the preinvasion planning. Alternatively, after the carriers and transports had withdrawn, they might have planned a quick in-and-out operation to unload the rest of the cargo. Fletcher is often referred to as Frank Jack to distinguish him from his father, Admiral Frank Fletcher.
