Top Air Force Commander Fired over Misconduct Allegations

The commander of the 19th Air Force, Maj. Gen. Phillip A. Stewart, has been fired for unspecified misconduct allegations, according to Air and Space Forces. The decision was made due to a loss of confidence in his ability to lead. Brig. Gen. Christopher R. Amrhein has been named interim commander. The 19th Air Force oversees flight training for the Air Force and has about 32,000 personnel. This is the latest in a series of high-profile firings this year, including Brig. Gen. Paul Birch and six officers at Minot Air Force Base. The Air Force is committed to conducting a thorough investigation.
