On Jan. 18, 2023, Capt. Jennifer Blakeslee, commodore, Naval Surface Squadron 14 (CNSS 14), based in Mayport, Fla., relieved Cmdr. Alexa Jenkins, commanding officer of USS Carney (DDG 64), due to loss of confidence in her ability to command.
Cmdr. Jenkins served as commanding officer since June 2022. Capt. Aaron Anderson will be temporarily assigned as commanding officer until a permanent relief is identified.
Cmdr. Jenkins will be temporarily reassigned to the staff of Commander, Naval Surface Squadron 14. There is no impact to the command’s mission or schedule due to the relief.
The 13th Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer, Carney is homeported in Mayport and named after Adm. Robert Bostwick Carney. The ship shifted homeport to Mayport in July of 2020 after completing a five-year Forward Deployed Naval Forces-Europe deployment to Rota, Spain, as part of Destroyer Squadron 60.
