Army Officer Suspended for Allegedly Ignoring Affairs

The head of an Army unit operating the primary U.S. missile-defense system has been suspended after an investigation into allegations that he overlooked sexual affairs and promoted a pinup calendar featuring scantily clad female soldiers.

Army Lieutenant Colonel Joseph Miley was suspended yesterday by Lieutenant General Richard Formica, commander of the Army’s Space and Missile Defense Command, according to John Cummings, a spokesman for the Huntsville, Alabama-based command.
