This story finally had a happy ending.

Ex-COL James Johnson III, the arrogant former commander of the 173rd Airborne Brigade, has finally been properly punished.

The 48 year-old West Point graduate and son of a retired two-star general, has been busted back in rank to lieutenant colonel and shown the door. Johnson officially was retired as of Sept. 30, 2012.

Good riddance.

SPURNED SPOUSE STILL WANTS HIM JAILED

The only one not happy about this development we know is Johnson's ex-wife.

Middle-aged Kris, thrown over for a young Iraqi babe, is still bitter at her former husband, and she has good reason to be. He cheated on her with the gal pal, the colonel forged Kris's signature to a divorce document, and even cut her off from medical care when he lied in official papers that she was no longer his wife.

"I still think he should have gone to jail," the spurned former spouse e-mailed to STARS & STRIPES.

At least she will get half of his retirement pay. As an O-5 with 26 years service, Johnson will haul down around $53,000 a year.

Ironically, it was Kris Johnson who blew the whistle on her philandering hubby.

WE YELLED LIKE HELL AND PRESSURED
PENTAGON - JOHNSON FINALLY GETS REAL PUNISHMENT

Now a convicted felon, Johnson will have to count his pennies from here on out. At end of his court-martial earlier this year, (see related stories box below), the skinhead colonel was fined $300,000 for defrauding the government on travel expenses for him and his mistress.

Many people speculated that sonny boy's rich father, MAJ GEN James Johnson Jr. AUS (Ret.), actually paid the tab. Daddy, a West Point grad, sat in on lover-boy's court-martial.

It's celebration time. How often do you see a high-ranking "ring-knocker" demoted and told to retire? Congratulations to you, dear readers. It was the outrage you and others expressed that forced the Pentagon to finally do "damage-control."

So long, Johnson. Don't let the door hit (your sorry butt) on the way out."
