The Navy issued a letter of reprimand to a former commander of its precision flying team the Blue Angels following a hearing at Pearl Harbor.

In the decision issued Monday, the Navy relieved Captain Gregory McWherter of his duty as executive officer of Naval Base Coronado in California.

McWherter was accused of allowing sexual harassment in the workplace by tolerating inappropriate comments and pornographic images.

The letter of reprimand is widely considered to be a career ending action in the service.
