In this Aug. 3, 2012 photo provided by the U.S. Navy, Cmdr. Michael P. Ward II, center, is saluted during the change-of-command ceremony for the nuclear submarine USS Pittsburgh at the Naval Submarine Base New London, in Groton, Conn. Ward was relieved of his command in August 2012 after he faked his own death to end an affair with a woman. Ward's lawyer said Friday, April 12, 2013, during a hearing in Groton to determine his status with the Navy, that Ward admits to the mistake and apologizes, and that he should not be expelled from the Navy.
