|Lt. Gen. John Hesterman|
A senior Air Force general officer has been fired from his job and will retire after an investigation found that he had an inappropriate and unprofessional relationship with a lower-ranking female Air Force officer. - LOLITA C. BALDOR, Associated PressFull story here. More here. (John Q. Public had a post about this disgrace as well. For some reason my security software claims his website is bad ju-ju. No, I'm not using an Air Force computer... Update: Here is JQP's post about this guy from March. I can't find the most recent one concerning his retirement in grade.)
But this guy makes me happy. (The Nuke's old boss.)
|Admiral John M. Richardson, Chief of Naval Operations|
CNO to admirals: Rethink integrity, behavior in aftermath of scandals... Stars & Stripes
Full story here.
The Nuke tells me he was a great boss, and she has extraordinarily high standards I can tell you. First the CNO wants to dump one of the worst non-Air Force uniforms ever*, now he's talking seriously about integrity and behavior. (You can read the actual message from the CNO here.)
Gee, is it too late to draft the Admiral for President?
Is it too late to give the Air Force back to the Army. Perhaps the Marines?
Admiral Richardson, d'ya think you could loan some admirals to the Air Force to show them how it's done?
My old service covers themselves in "glory" again. (Yup, that should have set off your sarcasm detector.)
And people ask me why I "let" my kids join the Navy.
No doubt somewhere, Buck is shaking his head, saying,
"It's always sumthin'."
