Yet another West Pointer has been relieved of command.

Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, commander of Joint Task Force - Horn, has been fired after allegations of alcohol use and "sexual misconduct."

The 53 year-old ring-knocker had been boss at Camp Lemonnier in Djibouti, Africa.

On the heels of the dumping last year of now-retired Lt. Gen. William "Kip" Ward, former top general in the Africa Command, Baker's departure is an embarrassment to his buddies in the Pentagon.

Ward got the boot after he was caught spending large sums of money for shopping and trips (with his wife) that were more befitting of a royal potentate than a senior Army officer.

DAMAGE CONTROL

We tried to look up Gen. Baker's official bio on the Internet, but the Pentagon beat us to it. The Africa Command site was "scrubbed" of all mention of the flag officer.

But the expert investigators at MilitaryCorruption.com weren't dissuaded. We found out Baker is a 1982 graduate of USMA, and even grabbed up his photograph.

The general's father was Army Lt. Col. Ralph Baker.

Included in his punishment was an unspecified fine, which we hear Baker is appealing to Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel. His chances of succeeding there are slim to none.
