You know, its quite possible that the CO Sqdn Leader, was not the one who did the drawing of said offensive image.
He could have very well been covering for a team member, whom he felt may be unfairly judged for his boyish hi-jinks, perhaps saving their future reputation over his own.......markings of a good strong leader, the type the Air Force probably needs.
Im sure, as a respected officer (it appears), and member of the DoD, he didn't expect "Things" to get out of hand as they have.
Perhaps he could engage a military lawyer, and claim unfair dismissal.
However, one member of the squadron, whose name was redacted from the investigation, said the drawings were not meant to be sexually explicit or demeaning toward anyone in particular. "They were drawn to see how funny, creative, and artistic people could be; they gave the crew something to laugh at and keep morale high. The drawings were viewed by many as 'art' [redacted], it would not have happened if anybody was offended." The investigation found that between 10 and 25 members of the squadron drew the images starting in October 2017, and it faults Goossen and the squadron's other senior leaders for not doing more to put a stop to it.

See? They had to fire him. The unit had positive morale. Can't have that happening.
