AIR FORCE BOUNCES SQUADRON COMMANDER
© 2015 MilitaryCorruption.com
Scott Foley was getting ready to retire in September. Now he's wondering if he'll make it to the finish line.
The former commander of the 802nd Security Forces Squadron at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland would've become a civilian again in a matter of months. Now, his future in the Air Force is uncertain at best.
When his firing was first announced, all we got was the usual boiler-plate that "due to a loss of confidence" in him and in "his ability to command," Foley had been bounced as commander.
It was Col. Michael Gimbrone, commanding officer of the 502nd Security Forces and Logistics Group who "pulled the trigger" on the embattled light colonel.
NO SEX ANGLE TO THE CASE, GENERAL SAYS
But now, we get a little more detail, that while an investigation is still ongoing, Foley's troubles stem from an allegation he had an "unprofessional relationship" with a subordinate whom he allegedly had e-mailed in an "inappropriate" way.
However, whatever was in the e-mail or e-mails, "it was not sexual," Air Force Brig. Gen. Robert LaBrutta told our friends over at Air Force TIMES.
Foley, a former enlisted man, served in Iraq. He is a 1995 graduate of Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville with a degree in psychology.
