Recommended Posts

NEWPORT, R.I. (NNS) – Commander, Naval Legal Service Command (NLSC), Rear Adm. David G. Wilson, relieved Capt. Amy Larson as the commanding officer and LtCol Bret Swaim as the executive officer of Naval Justice School (NJS) on May 31 due to a loss of confidence in their ability to command.

Capt. Mark Klein, deputy commander of NLSC, is assigned as the interim commanding officer, as well as the Judge Advocate General’s special assistant for training.  Cmdr. Abigail Myers, NJS operations officer, is assigned as the acting executive officer while NLSC works with the Marine Corps to identify a permanent relief.

Larson and Swaim were relieved following an assessment of the current NJS climate.  Neither officer was involved in misconduct.  Their relief will not impact the NJS mission or execution of its training schedule.

Larson has served as NJS commanding officer, and also as the Judge Advocate General’s special assistant for training, since Sept. 10, 2021.  Swaim has served in various roles at NJS since the summer of 2020. 

Larson has been temporarily reassigned to NLSC headquarters.  Swaim’s new assignment has not yet been named.
