USS Paul Ignatius (DDG 117) Commanding Officer Relieved

Recommended Posts

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.
