USS Preble (DDG 88) Commanding Officer Relieved

Recommended Posts

The commanding officer of USS Preble (DDG 88), Cmdr. Peter Lesaca, was relieved of command June 14 by Capt. Patrick H. O’Mahoney, commodore, Destroyer Squadron (COMDESRON) 23, due to loss of confidence in his ability to command.

Capt. Larry Repass, deputy commodore, Destroyer Squadron 23, will assume the duties as commanding officer until the permanent and qualified relief arrives.

Navy commanding officers are held to high standards of personal and professional conduct. They are expected to uphold the highest standards of responsibility, reliability and leadership, and the Navy holds them accountable when they fall short of those standards.
