Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story fired their top enlisted sailor this week, officially for ”undisclosed reasons.”

Command Master Chief (SW) Yeves Raynaud, 44, was asked to step back as the Joint Base's installation commander, under allegations earlier this month of an alleged affair with a civilian woman.

He had held the position at Joint Expeditionary Base Little Creek-Fort Story since October of 2013.

Raynaud enlisted in the Navy 1987 and later served as the command master chief of the destroyer Gravely (DDG 107) from 2011 to 2011 and the amphibious transport dock Ponce from 2008 to 2011.

Raynaud has temporarily been reassigned to a position in Norfolk, Va., pending further investigation of the allegations. Senior Chief Culinary Specialist (SW) Johnlyn Bolden, will take Raynaud’s place until a permanent replacement is assigned.

The Navy Times reports that Raynaud’s awards include three Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medals, three Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, four Navy E Ribbons and the Pistol Marksmanship Ribbon.
