Destiny Savage, executive officer; Command Master Chief Gabriel Keeton; and Manila American Cemetery superintendent Master Chief Larry Adkison salute at the Manila American Cemetery in the Philippines. A Navy investigation found that Gombert had retreated to his cabin for several weeks in the middle of a recent deployment, leaving the 330-member crew leaderless. The probe also revealed that Gombert was having an improper and "unduly familiar" relationship with the Savage, cruiser's acting executive officer, U-T San Diego reported Wednesday, Aug. 7, 2014.
