The commander of Marine Corps Base Hawaii has been relieved.
Marine Corps Installations Pacific commander Maj. Gen. Peter Talleri relieved Col. Jeffrey R. Woods today due to a lack of confidence.

Woods is being replaced by interim commanding officer Lt. Col. Michael P. Antonio, who has served as the base's director of operations and training.
