Miramar Marines fire squadron skipper

Third Marine Aircraft Wing leader Maj. Gen. Mark Wise has relieved another commander following a “loss of trust and confidence in his ability to continue to serve” at the Miramar air station, according to a written statement provided to The San Diego Union-Tribune.

Citing “issues concerning command climate” within Marine Fighter Attack Squadron 232, the Corps announced the firing of Lt. Col. Wade “Casper” Workman on Wednesday.  A highly decorated fighter pilot, Workman took command of the “Red Devils” on Jan. 15, following a stint as the Operations Officer of Marine Aircraft Group Eleven.  

Miramar spokesman Capt. Kurt M. Stahl indicated that Workman was not relieved over allegations of misconduct or criminal activity but rather “an unhealthy command climate that negatively impacted trust within the unit that is critical to effective operations.”

Workman, 41, told the Union-Tribune, “It just didn’t work out.”
