Two Submarine captains and the commander of an EA-6B squadron have been relieved of duty since December of 2006.
The commander of the EA-6B squadron on the USS Eisenhower was recently relieved after 5 days of command for "a loss of confidence in his ability to
command." An investigation has been convened, but no further details were released.
The Captain of the USS Minneapolis-Saint Paul was relieved in December of 2006 after five sailors were swept overboard and two drowned off the coast
The Captain of the USS Newport News was relieved after the submarine collided with the Japanese supertanker Mogamigava. The submarine was in the
Straits of Hormuz with the USS Eisenhower when it collided with the tanker. When it pulled into port in Bahrain, radioactive material began leaking,
and the sub was forced to leave the area after concerns were raised by the Iranian government. It was transferred from the Persian Gulf for repairs.
