Editor’s note: This story originally listed an incorrect rank for Col. Murray and has been updated.
The commander of the 62nd Medical Squadron at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington was relieved of command last month.
Col. Daniel Murray, who was also director of base medical services, was removed on Sept. 21 “due to a loss of confidence in his ability to lead and command” by Col. Rebecca Sonkiss, commander of the 62nd Airlift Wing, according to 62nd spokeswoman Master Sgt. Shanda De Anda.
De Anda said in a Friday email that Murray is still at the 62nd Airlift Wing, but she did not specify what he is doing there.
De Anda said that there is an active, non-criminal investigation into Murray, but that it did not cause his removal. She said the Air Force will not discuss details of the investigation until it is finished.
Murray entered active duty in 2002 as a flight surgeon and served seven years in Air Force Special Operations Command, according to his official Air Force biography. He deployed six times to locations in the U.S. Central Command and Pacific Command theaters, the biography said.
The 62nd Medical Squadron is now being commanded by Lt. Col. Christopher Gonzales.
