CMC ALBERT MARCUCCIThis isn't the first time the top enlisted sailor aboard the USS Stout has been relieved of duty.

Back in 2011, we reported that CMC Susan Bruce-Ross and her skipper, CMDR Nathan Borchers, (see related stories box below) walked the plank after the Navy brass caught wind of a cover-up regarding the ship's crew misbehavior in a port-of-call. It had to do with alcohol.

Now, another E-9 is in trouble. It's 23-year Navy veteran Albert Marcucci.

IT WAS A FEMALE ABOARD THE STOUT

The native of Apple Valley, Calif. was accused of having an "overly familiar relationship" with a subordinate female aboard the Norfolk-based tin can. CMDR Andrew Fitzpatrick, the ship's commanding officer, pulled the trigger on Marcucci,

He gave the master chief a career-ending letter of reprimand, Because the case did not go to court-martial and was considered an in-house, non-judicial action, we can provide no other details of what actually transpired, at this time.

We do know that Marcucci was also tagged for making a "false official statement."

The CMC first came aboard the Stout in 2013 and has served tours of duty in both Afghanistan and Iraq.
