The commander of a Mayport, Fla.-based guided-missile destroyer was relieved from command “due to a loss of confidence,” two Navy officials told USNI News on Thursday.

Cmdr. Jeffery Servello, commander of USS Paul Ignatius (DDG-117), was removed from his position on Thursday, the officials confirmed.

The relief comes after an investigation into the ship’s performance during a 2021 exercise in which the crew had made mistakes during an anti-air warfare drill in the Atlantic, two sources familiar with the exercise told USNI News.

      WASHINGTON — A federal judge revoked the pretrial release for a Navy reservist awaiting trial on charges stemming from the Jan. 6 Capitol riot last week following his conviction in Virginia for possessing unregistered silencers. U.S. District Judge Trevor McFadden ordered Hatchet Speed, of McLean, Virginia, back into custody on Friday after a jury in the Eastern District of Virginia convicted him earlier this month of possessing multiple silencers disguised to look like cleaning supplies.
