There is much more to what is going on than this one story indicates. Please read the second article to get a grasp of what is being done to our military.
Lt. Col. Craig Perry and his wife, Caroline, involved themselves in the personal lives of airmen and families at their new command, a leadership approach encouraged from the top down to help identify those in need.
A month after Perry took the helm of a support squadron sustaining basic military training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland in July, Caroline revived the languishing Key Spouse Program to reach out to families in her husband’s unit. She delivered baby gifts to first-time parents, cooked lunches for flight members and welcomed an airman alone during the holidays into their home.
But what the Perrys considered acts of kindness expected of commanders, investigators called favoritism and fraternization.
A January command-directed investigation report obtained by Air Force Times concluded Perry engaged in unprofessional relationships with enlisted members in his organization. He was relieved of command of the 737th Training Support Squadron on March 27 and issued a letter of reprimand.
Col. Mark Camerer, commander of the 37th Training Wing, said in an email statement he lost confidence in Perry’s ability to lead the squadron.
Once a standout officer on track for promotion to colonel, Perry has little hope of salvaging his career.
Whether he is being treated fairly is a matter of debate.
Perry may not have intentionally had unprofessional relationships or shown favoritism, the report said. Some applauded Perry’s fairness and others recalled favoritism.
“If you’re going to be relieved for things like favoritism, it should be a clear-cut case. They do not sound like clear-cut cases to me,” a retired officer told Air Force Times.
Perry briefly taught high school math in his native San Antonio after graduating from Brown University at the top of his class. He was commissioned in the Air Force in 1994, following in the footsteps of his grandfathers, who were combat pilots.
He spent much of his nearly two-decade career overseas as an intelligence officer, earning a master’s degree in Russia through the Olmsted Scholar Program. He was looking forward to commanding an operational unit in his career field last summer when he was handpicked to help lead one of nine basic military training squadrons in the wake of a sexual misconduct scandal that made headlines around the country.
“When he heard he was being put in charge of a BMT squadron instead, he was a little concerned, since he wasn’t all that familiar with enlisted basic training,” Caroline said in an email. “But he knew Air Force leadership wouldn’t have selected him for this opportunity if they didn’t think he was up to the challenge — and besides, he was excited to tackle this critical mission.”
The new assignment also returned the Perrys to their hometown where they would be close to family and friends, she said.
When no one from the squadron or the 737th Training Group reached out with a welcome during Perry’s first month on the job, Caroline said she made it her mission to resuscitate the Air Force-sanctioned Key Spouse Program within the unit. The program provides an extra layer of support for airmen and encourages interaction among families — two of Perry’s top priorities when he took command of the squadron.
then there is this:
According to an article by Todd Starnes, the USAF colonel commanding basic training at Lackland Air Force Base (San Antonio), a lesbian, has created an environment of intimidation by ordering some of her subordinates to publicly express their position on gay marriage, and announce to others their religious preferences.
Apparently, this issue began after Colonel Deborah J. Liddick assumed command of the Air Force Basic Military Training Unit, 737th Training Group at Lackland and came to light after Senior Master Sergeant Philip Monk, a 19-year veteran of the USAF reported that he refused to tell the lesbian commander his personal opinion about queer marriages. Senior Master Sergeant Monk disagreed with Colonel Liddick when she wanted to reprimand a new instructor who had expressed objections to homosexuality based on his religious teachings. Monk then stated that he was relieved of his duties when he also refused to tell Colonel Liddick his personal opinion about gay marriage.
Entering the equation now is a local pastor, who has stated that at least 80 airmen from Lackland have attended a private meeting at the Village Parkway Baptist Church where they voiced their concerns about religious hostilities at the Air Force Base. “It was a standing room only crowd,” said Rev. Steve Branson.
“There is an atmosphere of intimidation at Lackland Air Force Base. Gay commanders and officers are pushing their agenda on the airmen. It is a culture of fear in the military and it’s gone of a new level with the issue of homosexuality. It is getting worse every day. While gay and lesbian airmen can talk openly about their lifestyle, everyone else has to remain quiet about what they believe.”
Meanwhile, Senior Master Sergeant Monk, who has a spotless record after 19 years of active duty military service, has filed a religious discrimination complaint against the Air Force. When he appeared before a meeting to discuss the complaint, Air Force officials gave Monk his Miranda warning and charged him with “making false statements.” Senior Master Sergeant Monk now faces a potential court-martial.
So far, Senior Master Sergeant Monk is the only airman willing to go on the record about the travesty under Colonel Liddick’s command, but no one is intimidated speaking off the record. The problem is that other airmen know that they too will face court-martial for coming forward with the truth of Colonel Liddick’s anti-Christian, pro-homosexual agenda. She is reported to have informed one airman, “Even thinking that homosexuality is a sin is an act of discrimination and punishable under the Uniform Code of Military Justice,” said Pastor Branson.
Our military has gone down the tubes with 'leaders' like Col. Lickedysplit. These gags are going to answer to God on of these days and I pity them.
This NUT needs to shut her mouth and STOP forcing US Citizens to violate their religious rights and Freedom of Speech...WE ALL STILL HAVE CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS!! In or out of the Military! Another Liberal Communist insecure lezbo. Go back into the dark comfortable closet...you don't know how to act in the LIGHT of GOD!!!
The real problem is that she is in violation of military conduct in trying to force others to support her immoral conduct, no matter if it was not immoral, it is a full violation!
Obama is one sick POS!
He is completely destroying America!
Is there nothing we can do?
He hates America and America hates him!
We need a president that all citizens can trust!
We can not trust a LIAR like Obama! We need to
freeze George Soros' bank accounts ASAP!
Right! Confiscate Soros money he uses here and use it to support freedom! He is totally committing treasonable offenses against our nation and her citizens! Imagine having an honorable Liberal media instead of one that absolutely supports treason against us all! We would not have what we have, including Obama and his radical Muslim/Marxist agenda if it was not for our anti-freedom anti-American Liberal media! What did they say back when Bill Clinton committed high treason? He gave our missile guidance technologies to Communist China! That is high treason! This was years ago and the Liberal/Marxist anti-American media said it was for space exploration! Want to buy a bridge fellow Americans? Fox News had experts on that said it meant that China, now can hit an American city within 50 miles and before it was 300! If that is not high treason there is no such thing and with Democrats and our Marxist supporting media, who is for us Americans?
Virgil: You are correct in your statement, but we the people have turned our heads anytime we have seen corruption,WHY? It seems that we the people are just as corrupt as the ones we elect. Look at how many times some elected official has gotten into trouble and response of the people. Until we accept the reality that we elect and back crooks nothing will change.
You're right, but there is something we can do. This November we need to get rid of at least six Democrat/progressives in the United States Senate. This will eliminate Harry " The Evil Dwarf ' Reid and company. It will also give (hopefully) common sense Republicans a majority, who will work with the House to eliminate funding for the EPA. Change Obamacare from a tax into TRUE health care reform. Kill "Common Core" and put our children's education back into the hands of the states. Cut funding for the Bureau of Land Management while giving back most of the land the federal government has confiscated from the states over the years. The last thing that needs to be done is to eliminate at least half the business regulations put in place by the Obama administration, drop the corporate tax rate, and give businesses incentive to come back and do business in America again. Make Soros "persona non grata" in America, just like a lot of other countries have already done. Get rid of the Nazi!!
ALL thanks to king Obama...mass-destruction of values and principles...with no end in sight. Our nation is sick and irreparable..it's own worst enemy for putting him in power.
Those who relieved this couple need to listen to these songs and think real hard about who their serving and their ETERNAL SECURITY!
A big question is how did that hunk of excrement get all of those more and more meaningless ribbons? If she is wearing them she would have had to visit a pawn shop in a real Air Force.
SHE WAS A GOOD LIAR...
