The largest Army installation in the United States, Fort Bragg, has suspended one of their brigade commanders for allegations of misconduct.
The commander’s name was not released and base spokeswoman Army Maj. Crystal Boring said the commander would be reinstated if findings from the allegations were determined to be “without merit.”
"This action reflects our profession's continuous commitment to Army values, adherence to the highest standards of accountability and dedication to excellence while maintaining good order and discipline."
No further information was available.
The Army is playing these latest allegations close to the vest until they can be substantiated.
This commander’s suspension comes hot on the heels of the allegations and subsequent trial and conviction of Brigadier Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair, also from Fort Bragg.
Sinclair was convicted last month and sentenced to pay a $20,000 fine for an adulterous affair with a female captain and having improper relationships with two other women. He was also found guilty of abusing a government credit card.
