NAVAL ACADEMY GRAD RELIEVED OF COMMAND

The 1996 Naval Academy graduate might as well put in his retirement papers now. His military career is over. The onetime boss of Hawaii-based Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing 10 has been fired by CAPT Robert Patrick.
We've seen many a press release announcing this or that commanding officer had to walk the plank, but in this case, while the Navy doesn't provide raw details, you get enough from the way it is phrased to realize Ryan Cech must have stepped on his dick, big time.
What we are told is, the 43 year-old native of Glasgow, Montana "demonstrated poor judgment and lack of professionalism." That, if the official story is correct, "undermined his ability to continue to serve effectively in command."
WHAT'S THE REAL STORY HERE?
However, the release goes on to cite alleged "misconduct" and reports of "inappropriate behavior." Why do we suspect a female is involved in this somehow?
As for Cech, he's not talking to reporters (a good idea) and has been transferred to desk duty at Patrol Wing 2. The USNA ring-knocker had served a quiet career over the past 20 years as an officer with Patrol Squadron 9, VP-16 and VP-30. He also did time as an assistant navigator on the carrier USS Nimitz.
Cech's squadron, which flies the P-3 Orions, has been deployed to the western Pacific and is slated to move to Whidbey Island, Washington later on this year when the aviation unit transitions to P-8 Poseidons.
