Rota Latest Naval Facility to Lose Commander

Naval Station Rota's commander, CAPT William Mosk, was relieved of duty for issues surrounding an ongoing NCIS investigation regarding drug use by the station's members.  Although apparently not personally implicated in the investigation, Mosk's boss, RADM Tony Gaiani, lost confidence in Mosk's ability to handle the investigation.  Considering Mosk was scheduled to PCS (translation: move to a new assignment) 2 months from now and the investigation is only 6 weeks old (meaning command action would likely take place after Mosk's regularly scheduled departure from command), whatever triggered the loss of confidence must have been significant.
