Commanding Officer of USS ESSEX (LHD-2) fired for "loss of confidence"...

Since the collision of USS ESSEX and USNS YUKON on 16 May, Navy watchers have been anticipating the relief of Captain Chuck Litchfield.  That anticipation ended on June 18 when Rear Admiral Gerard Hueber, Commander, Expeditionary Strike Group THREE fired Litchfield for "loss of confidence in his ability to command."
