USS Columbus CO Relieved
According to the usually reliable Military Life blog at The Kitsap Sun, the CO of USS Columbus (SSN 762) was relieved of command recently due to concerns about his "ability to establish and maintain appropriate standards of professional conduct, provide the crew a safe, positive, professional environment in which to work, and maintain good order and discipline." (The blog post seems to have the same information as the article on the regular website, which requires a really annoying registration procedure to access.) CDR Charles Marquez, the former 762 CO, was reportedly replaced by Capt. Brian McIlvaine, who was my first XO on USS Connecticut (SSN 22) and later CO of USS Ohio.
