Fleet Readiness Center Mid-Atlantic Commander Relieved Due To Loss of Confidence

06 September 2023

The commanding officer of Fleet Readiness Center Mid-Atlantic (FRCMA), Capt. Paul Choate, was relieved of command Aug. 31, 2023, by Rear Adm. Joseph Hornbuckle, Commander, Fleet Readiness Centers (COMFRC), due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command.

Capt. Richard Foster, executive officer of FRCMA, has assumed command. Foster was scheduled to assume command in December. Capt. Choate has been reassigned to COMFRC headquarters.

Navy commanding officers are held to high standards of personal and professional conduct. They are expected to uphold the highest standards of responsibility, reliability and leadership, and the Navy holds them accountable when they fall short of those standards.
