Defense officials say the Navy is expected to relieve the commander of an aircraft carrier from his command in the wake of reports about sexually explicit videos on ship.
A senior defense official says the announcement on Capt. Owen Honors of the USS Enterprise, currently stationed in Norfolk, Va., is expected Tuesday afternoon. The officials said the Navy has chosen a commander to replace Honors on the nuclear-powered ship which is scheduled to deploy to the Middle East this month.
The officials revealed plans for Honors only on the grounds of anonymity because no official announcement has yet been made.
