I'm not familiar with the Air Force. Does that mean he's fired from the Air Force, or just as the B-52 Squadron Commander? He's stays in but no advancement, or is he now an E-2?

PO3 Bob McCord - Kind of Like the CMC getting an Admiral Mast. Career is Toast, Forced Retirement.

PO3 Bob McCord - PO1 William "Chip" Nagel Since he is a Lt Col and up to this pointif he hasn't done anything criminal, if he is close to retirment they will give him a staff job I am sure. Removal of command can be as simple as him and his commander didn't get along and thier leadership philosophies were drastically different or a climate survey stated the squadron was tanking in morale and accident were onthe rise or close calls etc and the senior leadership needed to put someone else in command. he won't make O-6 but he will probably be able to stay around and retire. From what the article state he was a pretty good combat leader but that doesn't always equate to peacetime leadership either. Probably a good man but just couldn't effectively lead. But his chances of making O-6 just got flushed down the toilet.

Lt Col Scott Shuttleworth - Thanks for the explanation Lt Col Shuttleworth. I remember one skipper we had on our ship. We saw him at the change of command ceremony and never again except up on the bridge once in awhile. About 4 moths later we saw him and his bags leaving the ship in the Philippines. You are so right. Combat leadership and peacetime leadership are quite different. This quiet change of command came about 3 months into a 9 month Vietnam deployment.
