YOKOTA AIR BASE, Japan The Army has relieved the commander of its largest base in Japan after an investigation into alleged misconduct, according to a U.S. Army Japan press statement sent late Friday.
The investigation had been ongoing since June 7, when Col. Eric Tilley was suspended from his job as commander of U.S. Army Garrison Japan.
Maj. Gen. James C. Boozer, Sr., commander of U.S. Army Japan and I Corps (Forward), officially relieved Tilley on Friday for lack of confidence based on the results of the inquiry, according to the press statement.
The statement provided no other details. Reached via email, U.S. Army Japan spokesman Maj. Kevin Toner said, " it would be inappropriate to make public the allegations because the investigation did not lead to findings of criminal misconduct."
The Tilley inquiry was not related to Boozers predecessor, Maj. Gen. Michael T. Harrison, Toner said. Harrison was also suspended in June while officials looked into whether he may have failed to report or properly investigate a sexual assault claim.
Toner would not address rumors that other officials have been relieved of their duties from Camp Zama as a result of alleged misconduct, nor did he elaborate on what had happened to Tilleys civilian deputy, Jeffrey Wertz, who was temporarily detailed to other duties in June during a misconduct investigation.
Col. Joy Curriera has been appointed to the position of garrison commander at Zama.
Correction: A previous version of this story incorrectly stated Col. Joy Curriera's title as being U.S. Army Japan Commander.
It goes on and on and on ...
Wouldn’t agree to lie to congress or shoot civilians if ordered to.
Another one bites the dust.
Just another administration-agenda replacement. Need say no more.
The purge continues.....
When it is, martial law will begin.
Must have made fun of Obama’s gigantic ears.
Nope, you don’t need to say more, but I expect a mid-level Roman functionary to show up any minute and assure us this is normal and appropriate.
Yet another officer gone, the purge continues...
I guess he was not queer or Marxist enough PING!
We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that weve set. Weve got to have a civilian national security force thats just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded. Barack Hussein Obama, 7/2/2008
What could possibly go wrong?
If you like your military, you will be able to keep your military. Period.
If you like your generals, you will be able to keep your generals. Period.
No one will take them away. No matter what.
Ah, the desired result of the Purge....the evil WASP is replaced by a deserving member of an appropriate Victim Class.
I guess some loyalist needed that job more than he did.
The roman showed up on a thread I started re: the purge a couple weeks ago. LOL
Martial law? No. Not yet.
First the current quiet piecemeal Military purge needs to be converted to a bloody wholesale Military purge.
We cant have martial law until after that purge is complete.
This isn’t part of the purge. This is the aftermath of a mistreated civilian employee. This has been percolating for a few months.
And the purge goes on.
