Lyle, hailing from New York’s Fairport, was titled the commanding officer of the boomer in August last year. He earlier served as the submarine’s special operations officer with Commander, Task Force 74 in Japan’s Yokosuka, and the executive officer associated with the ballistic missile submarine USS Louisiana.

Cmdr. Larry J. Arbuckle, the deputy commodore of Commander associated with Submarine Squadron 17, temporarily serves as Alabama’s CO, based in the Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor, Washington.

Commanding officers of the Navy are held to high standards of professional and personal conduct, the Navy mentioned in a statement Monday.

They’re expected to uphold the highest standards of reliability, responsibility, and leadership, and the Navy also holds these individuals accountable when they fall short of the standards.

Lyle is one of eight Navy commanding officers (at least) relieved this year. Recently, the Navy relieved Captain Paul Choate, the commanding officer associated with Fleet Readiness Center Mid-Atlantic, in August owing to a loss of confidence.
