AIR FORCE COLONEL PUNISHED FOR HIS
© 2017 MilitaryCorruption.com
Someone should tell the Air Force brass in Washington that Barack Hussein Obama's military social experiment is over. A new sheriff is in town, and his name is Donald Trump.
The latest example of "political correctness" from Obama-era Pentagon officers is the unfair and arbitrary destruction of a top colonel's career because a gay master sergeant got his nose out of joint when Col. Leland Bohannon wouldn't sign a "Certificate of Spousal Appreciation" letter that all Air Force members in good standing receive when they retire from the military.
In this case, Bohannon is a devout Christian, critical of the gay lifestyle, and the NCO's "wife" is a homosexual man. Thus the conflict over religious views.
NO MORE PROMOTION TO BRIGADIER GENERAL
The colonel, relieved of command at the Air Force Inspection Agency, did get a superior officer (flag rank) to "sign" the certificate, but the hard-charging master sergeant wasn't nearly satisfied. He filed an Equal Opportunity complaint, alleging the colonel had "discriminated" against him and his gay spouse.
That was all the PC-crowd needed. Despite Bohannon's 3300 hours in the air, his outstanding record over a quarter century, including combat duty, he was fired and told to report to a desk job in Washington. Sources say the pressure is on the highly-respected officer to put in his retirement papers and get out of the service as soon as possible.
First Liberty Institute, a religious liberty group, is fighting back on Bohannon's behalf. They have sent the Air Force a letter confirming the very religious colonel acted properly after petitioning the USAF to excuse him from signing the "appreciation" letter.
