NAVY CAPT MARIA MAJARWhat's been going on at the Multinational Medical Unit at Kandahar Airfield in Afghanistan?

Several of our readers have e-mailed us asking why Navy CAPT Maria Majar - and Chief Hospital Corpsman Shane Reece (more on him later) - were abruptly fired just before a new commander was scheduled to take over.

CAPT William Leonard was slated to assume the helm on April 2.

We don't have many details to go on except that an informed source told Navy TIMES that the action had been taken because an investigation had turned up a "hostile, toxic environment and culture of intimidation."

It was 5th Fleet REAR ADM James Loeblein who pulled the trigger on both Majar and Reece.

FEMALE OFFICER SERVED ALMOST 30 YEARS

CAPT Majar may bear a strong resemblance to Rosie O'Donnell, but that doesn't necessarily mean she is a shrill harridan. We'd like to hear from those who worked under her and find out more about complaints lodged, before MCC comes to a decision whether or not the end of her career is a good thing.

She does go back 27 years, to 1988, when Majar was given a direct commission as a Navy ensign. The former XO of the Navy Medicine Operational Training Center at Pensacola is a graduate of Oregon State University.

As for top enlisted man Reece, all we know as of press time is that Majar and he have been transferred to desk jobs at Naval Forces Central Command (Forward) Qatar.

It's a safe bet that both officer and enlisted are working on their application for retirement from the Navy.
