After a pretty nasty hazing incident involving 7 sailors on the 688I class fast attack sub USS Columbus, the CO was relieved today by COMSUBRON 17 in Bangor, WA. The good news is, my CO I had for the bulk of the time on the USS Ohio (726-G) Captain (then Commander) McIlvaine assumed command. That ship aught to do real well now I think. I don't know if anyone here gets the Navy Times, but they had a big article about the hazing incident a little while back. Anyhow, here's the article in the Kitsap Sun:

Sub Captain Relieved of Duty After Hazing Scandal
By Elaine Helm, ehelm@kitsapsun.com
June 13, 2006

The commanding officer of the fast attack submarine USS Columbus has been relieved of his post "due to loss of confidence" in his leadership, according to the Navy.

The action against Cmdr. Charles Marquez comes after seven Columbus sailors were charged in connection with the alleged hazing and assault of fellow crew members.

Capt. Scott Bawden, commodore of Submarine Squadron 17 at Bangor submarine base, relieved Marquez 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," according to a statement from the Navy.

Effective today, Marquez is replaced by Capt. Brian McIlvaine, former commander of the Trident submarine USS Ohio.

I would've put it in non-av, but the last time I did something like that, it was put in here.

At the very least, if not that, he'll be the new CO of a desk.
