One of the Navy's top officers has been relieved of duty because of alleged misconduct while he was commander of the famed Blue Angels aerial demonstration team, the Navy announced Friday.
Capt. Gregory McWherter was relieved of his post as executive officer of Naval Base Coronado. The action was taken by Vice Adm. William French, commander of Navy Installations Command.
McWherter was commanding officer and flight leader of the Blue Angels from November 2008 to November 2010, and then from May 2011 to November 2012. The Blue Angels are based at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Fla.
French's decision "was based on initial findings of an ongoing investigation into recent allegations of misconduct and an inappropriate command climate" at the Blue Angels while McWherter was the commander, the Navy said. No other details were released.

Obviously not in a guy. That would be OK.
Men, keep your nose clean...
I used to figure these types of things were so rare as to have some teeth if they were alleged.
Now? Now I figure the PC police were rung up by another Rat needing spin for another campaign meme.
What the hell does inappropriate command environment mean?
He probably is against homosexuality.
It probably means he wouldn't ask the men to take down the Playboy Calendar in the officer's mess.
I think we would have lost World War 2 if my dad and his buddies were subject to the same rules as today’s servicemen.
Any more than he always has been?
Because Lord knows our military men “kept their noses clean” during WWII.
All they’re doing is weakening a country.
Not anymore, it seems.
I was in for 24 years and Captains, XOs, and CMC’s were fired all the time. Today is nothing different. Same old stories, different names.
No, not thaatttt serious, more like the dreaded “eye roll” when the subject of fudge packing came up then somebody turned him in to the PPA (Pervert Protection Administration) and now his career is over.....,,
