Lieutenant Colonel Jennifer Grieves of Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 464 (HMH-464) has been relieved of her command due to loss of trust and confidence in her leadership abilities at Marine Corps Air Station New River.
According to a WWAYTV3, Major General Matthew Glavy of the 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing based his decision on Grieves’ failure to report when she was arrested by Onslow County deputies following a domestic assault charge.
Grieves, who had only commanded the unit since may, has been replaced by VMX-1 veteran Lieutenant Colonel Troy Callahan.
A female Marine since 1990, Grieves has served in both combat and as one of the five pilots of Marine One’s 2008 rotation, making her the first woman to do so.
