CMC JOE GRGETICHWhen Joe Grgetich joined the Navy in 1983, he probably didn't imagine he would someday be a top-ranked command master chief. He also couldn't have anticipated his long Naval career would end on as sour a note as this.

The 49 year-old has been fired as CMC of the San Diego-based destroyer USS Dewey. He'd been aboard the tin can since 2010.

Grgetich was dumped, according to Navy boilerplate, "due to a loss of confidence in his ability to fulfill his duties as command master chief." It was CAPT Lyle Stuffle, the commodore of Destroyer Squadron 1, who pulled the trigger.

MYSTERY AS TO EXACTLY WHY CMC DUMPED

The reason for Grgetich walking the plank is not very clear.

We do know that it has something to do with "personal misconduct." Our sources say, however, there are no charges currently pending against the E-9. That's not to say something will pop up soon.

All MilitaryCorruption.com knows at this point, is whatever happened is not allegedly unrelated to the CMC's job performance aboard the Dewey. It is said the problem stems from something that went down elsewhere.

Stay tuned, folks. We may find out more later on.
