SAYS "LOST CONFIDENCE" IN COLONEL

There's trouble in Paradise.
One of the plum assignments in the Army's Space and Missile Defense Command has been at Kwajalein Atoll in the South Pacific.
That's where Uncle Sam does a lot of important missile testing in the Marianna Islands.
FIRED BACK ON MAY 14TH
The way we hear it, COL Shannon Boehm was relieved of command last month. The top brass hoped to keep the senior officer's relief quiet.
No such luck, when MilitaryCorruption.com has CI's everywhere, and we mean everywhere.
Word is that Boehm, a 24-year veteran, stepped on his dick big-time, but we can't ascertain - at least as of press time - whether that means he literally tromped on it, or figuratively-speaking, short-circuited his military career.
FIRED BY A THREE-STAR GENERAL
All we know for now, is LT GEN Richard Formica, commanding general of the U.S. Army Space and Missile Command, pulled the trigger on Boehm.
The three-star said he'd "lost confidence" in his former commander's "ability to lead." The exact words were: "ability to provide appropriate leadership."
The key word there is "appropriate." Could it be that Boehm is the latest officer snared in a widening crackdown on sexual misconduct, or was the colonel busted for some other reason?
FIRING FIRST TIME EVER AT KWAJALEIN
Army personnel and islanders are shaking their heads at this, because Boehm's firing is the first time in the 50 years we've had a missile testing range at Kwajalein, that a commander hasn't completed a normal two-year tour.
COL Boehm's deputy, Joe Moscone, has been tapped to take over temporarily for the soon-to-be cashiered colonel until another 0-6 can arrive on the scene.
It was only last June when, amidst much pomp and ceremony, Boehm assumed command. Now, we can at least be sure of one thing.
He can forget about ever becoming a flag officer. That is gone, you might say, with the South Seas wind.
