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.
1. would not promote faggotry.
2. wouldnot persecute Christians under his command
3. would not follow unlawful orders
one or more of these is why.
Next tep: attack Finland, lose.
I don’t know why I sense it, but I think it’s the Pink Swastika flexing its muscle.
the pogrom continues
He probably told a funny fag joke and pissed off the company bull dyke.
Mid-Level functionary? that would be someone like Carney, Cutter, Candy or Carville.
This disgusts me. I have a friend serving overseas and this thug administration is doing its best to disarm and kill our military.
Starts with a C, in charge of 100 men.
Since this period in our history is analogous to the Middle Empire, 60 personnel would be more appropriate than 100.
The Centuriate of 100 was a republican T O & E.
The 'Great Purge' continues.. The question is, How does this end?
The Obama purge of true to the Constitution patriot officers continues.
I hope he is replaced by a true cornholin’ queer/s
You believe that?
It goes on and on and on ...
One mass shooting every month and one dismissed officer every week. There is a coordinated objective behind both of these reoccurring events - seize our guns while simultaneously neutralizing the military. Where is the country headed?
Another one bites the dust.
I did not see your post before I wrote mine. LOL
New boss is second from left.
Another General falls victim to the Obama Coup.
I work for a large defense contractor. the majority of the engineers are white men, a growing percentage white female, and a growing percentage Asian and some indian.
very few other minorities because when we’ve brought any in (btw, its amazing that there are close to zero African American men with engineering degrees), they just cannot do the job.
however, in any type of admin position, there is a purge, bringing in managers who are mostly black female. old white managers are being offered retirement packages. a friend of mine, employed there for over thirty years, had two hundred people, then told we’re taking everyone away and you’re going to be an individual contributor. he retired.
I have a feeling it’s either much ado about nothing or more Chuck Hagel than Obama. My guess is it’s more to do with expressing their displeasure to somebody about gays in the Military.
From Wiki (2011 figures)
U.S Army 438,000 enlisted 98,000 officers
U.S Marine Corp 170,000 enlisted 21,000 officers
U.S Navy 260,000 enlisted 52,000 officers
U.S Air Force 265,000 enlisted 64,000 officers
The U.S Army officer pool, 5% are O-6 (Colonel), .5% are 3 Star Generals.
So one O-6 in the Army being booted out represents .01% (assuming the unattributed figure of 10,000 Army Colonels, 5%)
Zama is still there. Good.
Looks like some of those gals need some PT time.
A coup in slow motion?
I haven’t seen a black-american Engineer in 25 years of Engineering. Heck, I don’t even remember a black-american in any of my higher math classes and applied engineering classes.
The single most prominent race representation in the Electronics Engineering that I’ve seen other than Caucasians are Asians, Northern Europeans (including Germany), Indian. I’ve seen more Hispanic Engineers than black engineers.
I’ve only seen a hand full of women engineers.
That’s what, ten now?
Either our flag officers are hopelessly inept and/or corrupt or there’s a major purge going on.
Either option isn’t good at all for us.
Do not turn your back on the emperor
That sounds about correct (I can’t say “that sounds about right” because there’s nothing right about any of this).
Yes, no doubt about it. Purging the military of old school Generals in order to get those on board with the new social experiments
