Update: USAFA Gen Goodwin Fired over IG Complaint
LtGen Jay Silveria addressed the Air Force Academy’s Board of Visitors today and said an IG complaint was the cause of Gen Kristin Goodwin’s removal as the USAFA Commandant [emphasis added]:
Goodwin was removed by her boss and the school’s head, Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria, amid an investigation…
The general later told The Gazette that an academy staff member filed a complaint with the Inspector General’s Office, which launched the investigation.
“I only know fractions of (the complaint),” he said. “I have not seen it.”
The investigation has since expanded beyond the single person who filed the complaint, Silveria said.
One does not normally get fired over a mere complaint, particularly as a General — which would seem to indicate Gen Silveria finds some credence in the complaint, incomplete investigation notwithstanding.
