Brig. Gen. Kristin Goodwin, the commandant of cadets at the Air Force Academy, was removed, pending a vaguely described ”ongoing investigation.” 

Goodwin led military training at the Academy since 2017, and was the first openly gay commandant in the Academy’s history. In a statement, the Academy wrote, “We cannot provide additional information on the investigation at this time. Col. Scott Campbell is taking command of the Cadet Wing until further notice.”

Brig. Gen. Michele Edmondson awaits an assignment to replace Goodwin after the May 30 graduation, the Gazette reports.
