    Lots of rumors floating around here. Apparently he was relieved of command and escorted of base. He was on a plane within 4 hrs. POA was given to someone to take care of his stuff. We are having an all call with the guy who fired him soon. Don't know if they will give specifics or not. One rumor floating is that since he is an avid drinker he got an DUI. Apparently he liked to show up to wing events (concerts, holiday parties) completely smashed. Once again, just whats been floating around here. If I hear any truth to any of this I'll pass it on.

    We were told today by the Lt. Gen. that he didn't do anything illegal as some have speculated. He was fired for basically how he led the wing and the way he went about it. Typical political answer.

    Totally unrelated but when I was at mildenhall there was a female sq commander who would be at the G-club totally hammertime drunk in uniform hitting on (handsome) Sra/SSgts. I believe she was a LTC in the normal age bracket an average non-rated LTC would be in. Right in the MILF/cougar arena and hunting cubs in the the normal SrA/SSgt age bracket. She was attractive enough that tipsy males would reciprocate, but someone would always come in and save the dudes or the chick. I would have banged her but I dont believe I was her type. For every dude that is dumb enough to hit on her in public, there is always one guys who is slick enough to hit it on the DL and not say shit. And to whomever that is, I salute thee. She, too, was relieved of duty.

    Did you confirm the rumor about being kicked off base and flown out within 4 hours because that is pretty severe and usually the result of criminal activity?

    Sticking with the drinking theme it could be that he did nothing illegal but has a major drinking problem. Maybe he was command directed to go to ADAPT and they determined he was an alcoholic and needed 30 days inpatient treatment. In that case I could see him geing escorted off the base within 4 hours to attend treatment. That's one scenario where nothing illegal happened yet he is on a plane within hours.

    Do You mean the cyber attack on Michael Hastings car?

    Rainmaker pretty sure he read about this story in a Penthouse Magazine letter to the editor.

    I like her already. Do you have her address and/or phone number?

    Efficiency through redundancy is a contradiction in terms.

    Attrition is not an effective means of combat.

We don’t just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and riffle their pockets for new vocabulary.” – James Nicoll

    I didn't even know about that. I was more referring to the reactions within the military ranks, as welll as what happened in the forums, in response to what he did and how "wrong" it was. Now that I have looked it up, it might count as well though.
