According to Kitsap Sun, last March a sailor saw the commander with about ten “women dressed provocatively at the front door of the hotel”.

Travis Zettel, commander of US submarine USS Bremerton, was relieved of his post last August after admitting that he paid for “female escort” when his ship was in a port in the Philippines, reports the Kitsap Sun newspaper  , which had access to the corresponding documents.

According to the report, the event occurred on March 1, when the submersible was in the Bay of Súbic, on the west coast of the island of Luzon. An informant revealed to the authorities that the captain had told him and another sailor that “he had asked / ordered ten girls to go to the hotel ” where they were staying. Later, at dinner, he saw Zettel with about ten “women dressed provocatively at the front door of the hotel.”

In May, a month after the submarine arrived in the city of Bremerton to be dismantled, the Naval Criminal Investigation Service (NCIS)  launched an investigation into the case .

The commander “admitted the guilt in paying for female escort” to the officers, the documents said. Zettel was reprimanded and released from office in August. He was also reassigned to the personnel of the submarine squadron based in Bangor.

The documents indicate that another sailor, whose name is not specified, was seen with three local women “who clung to his arm while walking”. However, he indicated that “he did not participate in prostitution” and requested a lawyer. No disciplinary action was taken against him.
