A U.S. Navy submarine commander was relieved of his duties this week after an incident in November in which he damaged a submarine upon returning to port, officials said.
Capt. Dave Adams was relieved Monday and reassigned at Submarine Group 10.
On Nov. 25, Adams was returning the USS Georgia, a nuclear-powered submarine, to King's Bay, Ga., when the vessel hit a channel buoy and ran aground. Rear Adm. Randy Crites, who relieved Adams of his command duties Monday, cited a loss in confidence for the decision.
