The commanding officer of the Little Creek-based amphibious dock landing ship Gunston Hall was relieved of command Thursday after an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment, simple assault and conduct unbecoming an officer.
Navy Times adds additional information:
The skipper of the dock landing ship Gunston Hall was fired Thursday, and the executive officer and command master chief were punished following an investigation into charges that ranged from sexual harassment and simple assault to drunk and disorderly conduct. All of the charges stemmed from conduct during the ship’s deployment that ended in early July.
