WASHINGTON — Seven senior enlisted sailors aboard the USS Hué City face disciplinary actions for conducting or helping cover up an inappropriate relationship while serving on the guided-missile cruiser, the Navy has announced.

Capt. Daniel Gillen, the commanding officer of the cruiser, “held non-judicial punishment proceedings April 21-23 for seven of the ship’s chief petty officers,” after an investigation confirmed “an inappropriate relationship between two chiefs and a petty officer,” according to a statement issued by Naval Surface Force Atlantic.

Two chief petty officers involved in the affair received unspecified administrative actions for violating Articles 92 and 134 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice, which cover fraternization and adultery.
