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.

Your theory is partially correct in one of my other posts I added that he wasn’t the one who was making the drawings in fact he had made efforts to curtail it but was axed for not coming down hard or fast enough on his men that were making the drawings.



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.

If we could just get back to the job of putting bullets and bombs on bad guys, things would be A LOT better. Commanders are forced to spend precious time that could be used for real world training or R&R and spend it on the fifth class in a row on sexual harassment policies,internet etiquette, and “Dog & Pony” shows for the top brass.

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

God forbid the men and women not feeling like they had to constantly be walking on eggshells constantly. It’s a sad day when you have to take away from the task at hand to worry about losing their career of silly little games that were harming no one. Reminds me of a Terminal Lance cartoon that sums this is pretty relatable to the issue of punishments vs. performance of duties.

Too, true. Heavens! We can't have them be well trained, high morale people who enjoy doing their jobs. That'd be too much like, well, common sense.

When did the Air Force start giving a # about public opinion? It certainly wasn't the case during the 60's and 70's, and before that, I'm sure... They did what they had to do.

Indeed my brother has some signed prints from Max, he’s a hell of a guy.

This one sergeant who was a woman was the worst with this type of #.

There are people of all sorts of ages and maturity in the ADFas well as in command positions.

Like collage guys drawing dicks on their buddies when they pass out......*looks to the floor in shame*

It's a dick, big deal there are actual ones in these guys pants.

Wonder who reported it air, or ground crew?

Granted they shouldn't have done it but destroying a person's life is a little extreme
