SSBN commanding officer relieved
U.S. Navy: USS West Virginia (Gold) Commanding Officer Relieved
  • Kings Bay, Ga. (Dec. 29, 2008) - Commander, Submarine Squadron 16/20, Capt. Daniel Mack, relieved Cmdr. Charles Hill, commanding officer of USS West Virginia (SSBN 736) (Gold), Dec. 29, due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command.

    Capt. Stephen Gillespie has temporarily assumed command of West Virginia (Gold). Gillespie, a former commanding officer of USS Rhode Island (SSBN 740), was most recently assigned as deputy for training at Submarine Squadron 16/20.

    Hill will be temporarily assigned to Commander, Submarine Squadron 20.
USNS Tippecanoe conducts operations while receiving protections of MSS 3
U.S. Navy: MSS 3 Provides Force Protection for Tippecanoe
  • Gulf of Aden (Dec. 29, 2008) - Sailors from Mobile Security Squadron (MSS) 3 are providing force protection for Military Sealift Command (MSC) fleet replenishment oiler USNS Tippecanoe (T-AO 199) while the ship conducts operations in the Gulf of Aden.

    Tippecanoe is crewed by civil service mariners working for MSC, and MSS 3 has been tasked with safeguarding the ship's crew and cargo while it conducts replenishment at sea operations off the coast of Somalia.

    * Maybe most civil service mariners can't resist piracy without security forces such as MSS-3. Well, who protect merchant vessels crew ?
