    Laughlin Pilots to Get Wings Back, Drug Reprimands to be Rescinded

    Three in one week"

    1) Enlisted Global Hawk pilots

    2) Cancelled Tops In Blue

    3) And now this:

    Laughlin Pilots to Get Wings Back, Drug Reprimands to be RescindedThree instructor pilots who were issued reprimands, removed from flying status, and processed for discharge based on text messages inaccurately interpreted by their wing commander to be evidence of drug use will have those administrative actions reversed, this according to sources familiar with a forthcoming Air Force press release.

    After an investigation and review ordered by Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Welsh, the three will have their aeronautical orders restored and be removed from administrative discharge proceedings. Reprimands referencing drug use will be removed from their personnel files after the review found that drug use allegations against the pilots were unsubstantiated. Essentially, the status quo ante will be restored as if the bogus drug charges had never been invoked. It’s a development not even those most
    optimistic about the review dared contemplate.


    While the actions will be attributed to the commander of Air Education and Training Command, they are a direct result of Welsh’s personal involvement in the case, which earned the praise of legislators who
    pressed the service to look into the case after the story caught their notice.



    It's like a wave of common sense has washed over HQ...what is happening to my AF?

    Perhaps the lizard people took over! If so, we should start recruiting them. /s

    Or, just maybe Gen Welsh got tired of being slapped around by Congress and the press for supporting fools.

    I don't know which is more likely: a CSAF intolerant of fools with stars, or an alien invasion,

    Can someone shed more light on this story. How does a CC get text messages and use them to start punitive proceedings?
