JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) -- Capt. John R. Nettleton, commanding officer, Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, was relieved Jan. 21 by Commander, Navy Region Southeast, Rear Adm. Mary M. Jackson due to loss of confidence in Nettleton's ability to command.

Nettleton has been temporarily reassigned to the staff of Commander, Navy Region Southeast in Jacksonville. Capt. Scott Gray, the chief of staff to Commander, Navy Region Southeast, has been assigned as acting commanding officer.

Nettleton assumed duties as commanding officer at Naval Station Guantanamo Bay on Jun. 29, 2012.
