A submarine from the US navy was released from duty last summer after paying ten female prostitutes while stationed in the Philippines.
Captain Travis Zettel lost confidence to control the attack submarine USS Bremerton and was disciplined in August after the investigation.
A study by the U.S. Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) was launched after a sailor's tip to the hotline of the Ministry of Defense Inspector General.

The sailor was apparently told by Zettel that ten girls had been asked / ordered to come into the hotel & # 39; where they stayed, according to documents that the Kitsap Sun had obtained.
The sailor later saw the commander with about ten female-dressed females outside the front door of the hotel & # 39 ;.
Another sailor, whose name was edited in the documents released to the Kitsap Sun, was spotted with three local females holding his arm while he was roaming & # 39; as greeting sailors of his command.
The incident occurred on 1 March while the sub was ported in Subic Bay, according to documents released to the Kitsap Sun.
Zettel was confronted by NCIS with the accusations and the "admitted blame on the payment of female counseling," according to the documents.
The other sailor was also interviewed but said that he & # 39; did not participate in prostitution. He then asked for a lawyer and that sailor was not "haunted for disciplinary action", the document said.

Zettel was reprimanded and released from his order in August. He was administratively reassigned to the staff of Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor-based Submarine Squadron 19, according to officials of the Navy.
Zettel became the commander of Bremerton, the oldest submarine before his recent dismantling, in August 2016.
& # 39; The 15th commander of the now 35-year-old & # 39; American classic is a proud moment for me and my family, "said Zettel in 2016 after he had taken over control of the sub.
It is not known how many sailors or personnel were employed at the time of the incident.
