Two-star Army general relieved amid investigation

The commander of the Army’s Combined Arms Support Center and Fort Lee, Virginia, was removed from his position Wednesday, a Training and Doctrine Command spokesman has confirmed to Army Times.

Maj. Gen. Paul Hurley had served as commander of the Army’s sustainment think tank and learning institution since June 2017.

“He is currently the subject of an official investigation, and we cannot comment further at this time," Maj. Thomas Campbell, the TRADOC spokesman, told Army Times.

Hurley was relieved due to a loss of confidence in his ability to lead, Campbell added ― a catch-all statement that can cover everything from misconduct to inappropriate behavior.

Army looks for new ways to address misbehaving generals

Struggling with an embarrassing series of misconduct and behavior problems among senior officers, the Army is putting together new mental health, counseling and career management programs to shape stronger, more ethical leaders.

Brig. Gen. Douglas McBride, currently the quartermaster commandant for the Army Quartermaster School, will serve as the interim CASCOM commander, Campbell said.
