The commanding officer of the USS Cowpens was relieved of duty Friday on suspicion of “inappropriate personal behavior,” making him the second captain of the ship to be relieved since 2010.
Capt. Robert Marin was relieved by Rear Adm. John Haley, commander of Carrier Strike Group 5, and has been assigned to Commander Naval Forces Japan headquarters, Navy spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Denver Applehans confirmed Saturday.
Two skippers in a row! Life on Cowpens must be… interesting.
