The top enlisted sailor aboard a Groton, Conn.-based attack submarine has been fired for what the Navy termed "alcohol-related misconduct" during an overseas port call, Submarine Group 2 said Friday.

Senior Chief Sonar Technician Submarines (SS) Gregory Cordray was relieved Thursday as chief of the boat of the Los Angeles-class attack sub Annapolis by Cmdr. John Gearhart, Annapolis' commanding officer, according to a news release.

Cordray is the eighth senior enlisted leader fired this year and the third from the submarine force.

Cordray has been temporarily assigned to the submarine squadron at Naval Submarine Base New London, according to The Associated Press. Cordray declined to comment Friday when reached by AP.

An investigation by Submarine Development Squadron 12 is underway, SUBGRU 2 said. No details of the incident were made available.

Master Chief Electronics Technician (SS) Ed Durrua has been named chief of boat on a temporary basis. He previously was assigned to the Los Angeles-class sub Miami.

Annapolis is forward-deployed, SUBGRU 2 said.
