Marine colonel relieved of duty

Posted: Updated:

The man who's led the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit for the last year is no longer in charge.

Major General Ray Fox relieved Colonel James Christmas of his command.

Fox lost confidence in Christmas' ability to lead the Marines and sailors of the 22nd MEU.

A spokesperson for the Marine Corps says relieving a commander is never an easy decision and it's not taken lightly.

But Major General Fox believes his decision is in the best interest of the Marine Corps.
