Officials removed the second-in-command at a Quantico, Va.-based health clinic Tuesday for command climate concerns, the Navy’s Bureau of Medicine and Surgery said Wednesday.

Capt. Thomas Craig, the executive officer at Naval Health Clinic Quantico, Va., was fired by the health clinic’s commanding officer, Capt. Kathy Becker, officials said.

“It comes as a result of the annual command climate survey and a follow-on command climate investigation,” said BUMED spokeswoman Capt. Dora Lockwood, who explained the annual survey was conducted in August and concerns that surfaced led to the investigation a month later.

Asked about the investigations’ findings, Lockwood said: “I don’t have any specifics about the findings from the survey or the investigation.”

Craig has served in the Navy for nearly four decades. He enlisted in 1976 and later became an officer after receiving degrees from Temple University and the Uniformed Services University. Craig has deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan and has received numerous awards, including the Meritorious Service Medal, five Navy Commendation Medals, and the Combat Action Ribbon.

Reached via email Wednesday, Craig declined to comment on his relief, writing: “I’d rather not make a statement.”
