IG found former academy commandment misused travel, had poor command climate; she will seek redress for firing | Air Force Times

Brig. Gen. Kristin Goodwin is the former commandant of cadets at the Air Force Academy in Colorado. In a recent report by an inspector general, Goodwin allegedly misused travel practices for personal use, as well as failed to maintain healthy command climate and blamed her staff for her own mistakes. In April, she transferred to a new role at the Pentagon after being relieved of her duties as head of military training at the academy. Despite these allegations and her removal, Goodwin’s attorney claims that the IG failed to properly investigate an allegation of toxic leadership in the first place. Not only that, but Goodwin’s attorney claims she succumbed to ‘bigotry, bias and discrimination’ as a married gay officer. The decision of her removal, apparently, was unjust, inappropriate, arbitrary and all based on hearsay. As a result, Goodwin and her attorney are seeking redress of her removal.
