Workman was removed from the post by Maj. Gen. Mark Wise, commanding general of the Third Marine Aircraft Wing, “due to a loss of trust and confidence in his ability to continue to serve in that position,” according to a statement from Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.
The decision stemmed from “issues concerning command climate within the squadron,” the bulletin states.
Officials declined to provide further explanation for the move.
His service profile has been removed online, leaving biographies of two subordinates. But a cached version says Workman graduated in 1997 from the U.S. Naval Academy with a degree in computer science.
After flight school, he had fleet replacement training at the Miramar base, finishig up in 2001.
He made two aircraft carrier deployments in support of Operations Southern Watch and Iraqi Freedom.
In July 2013, Workman reported to the Commander of Naval Air Forces for a staff assignment as the Tac-Air Integration liaison officer. After two years in Coronado, he reported to Marine Aircraft Group Eleven (MAG-11) for duty as the operations officer.
“Workman has flown over 2,900 mishap-free flight hours. His awards include the Meritorious Service Medal, Air Medal with Strike/Flight Numeral 3, and Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal with combat V,” said his profile.
