First Female Presidential Helicopter Pilot Fired Over Assault Arrest

Jonah Bennett National Security/Politics Reporter 5:15 PM 06/07/2017

The first female presidential helicopter pilot has been fired from command of her current squadron after she declined to report to her chain of command that she was arrested for assault.

Marine Corps Lt. Col. Jennifer Grieves, who served as the first female officer to command Marine One in 2009, was removed from command of Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 464, “due to a loss of trust and confidence in her ability to continue to lead,” Task & Purpose reported Wednesday.

She assumed command of HMH-464 in May 2015, according to her Marine Corps biography.

Grieves was arrested in December and charged with simple assault over a domestic dispute, while she was at her home in Sneads Ferry, N.C. Although she was released on $500 bail, the charge is still pending. Grieves never reported the incident, and now she has lost command and will be reassigned elsewhere within II Marine Expeditionary Force.

Grieves gained a certain amount of fame when ABC News proclaimed her “person of the week” after she finished serving in a year-long post as pilot of Marine One during the Obama administration. She served with an all-female crew in her last flight on the job.
