Fort Jackson's Commanding General Suspended


By News Department

FORT JACKSON, S.C. (WOLO/AP) - The commanding general of Fort Jackson has been suspended.

The Army says Brig. Gen. Bryan Roberts was suspended in connection with charges of adultery and involvement in a physical altercation.

A report did not specify who the general is accused of assaulting.

Roberts assumed command in April 2012.

Brig. Gen. Peggy Combs will serve as interim commander.

With the military's current rape epidemic featuring such niceties as homosexual assault and an Army general facing charges of forcible sodomy, I guess we oughta be thankful the charges (awaiting details re the general's "altercation") aren't worse than they are. Next thing ya know, we'll be told that adultery is normal and healthy.

well, don't that beat all???? how many other Ft.Jackson commanding generals have been suspended? Thought so....that's what happens when self-worth, honesty and love of country are thwarted. Let's give Brig Gen Peggy Combs a round of applause....hopefully she will take her appointment seriously and be respectful of her country and chosen 'em how it is done Lady General...good job.
