The commanding officer of Strike Fighter Squadron 106 (VFA-106) has been fired due to an alleged affair with a female Navy civilian.

Commander Edward White was relieved on 26 August as Commanding Officer of the “Gladiators,” based out of Naval Air Station Oceana, Virginia.

The Navy cited a “loss of confidence in his ability to command following the preliminary findings of an ongoing command investigation into an alleged inappropriate relationship with a female Department of the Navy civilian employee.”

Rear Admiral Michael Shoemaker, Commander, AIRLANT, made the decision to fire the CO.
