(Air Force) Sergeant in trouble for Playboy spread
SAN ANTONIO - An Air Force staff sergeant who posed nude for Playboy magazine has been relieved of her duties while the military investigates, officials said Thursday.

In February's issue, hitting newsstands this week, Michelle Manhart is photographed in uniform yelling and holding weapons under the headline "Tough Love." The following pages show her partially clothed, wearing her dog tags while working out, as well as completely nude.

"This staff sergeant's alleged action does not meet the high standards we expect of our airmen, nor does it comply with the Air Force's core values of integrity, service before self, and excellence in all we do," Oscar Balladares, spokesman for Lackland Air Force Base, said in a statement.

Manhart told Playboy that she considers herself as standing up for her rights.

Not as revealing as one might like, but I guess you have to get the mag for that. Still, not bad though. Enjoy!

On edit: I wouldn't mind supporting that troop.

33. Training the troops to use their heads, or the use of Saltpeter, perhaps?
Manhart, who is married with two children, joined the Air Force in 1994, spending time in Kuwait in 2002. She trains airmen at Lackland.

3. "has been relieved of her duties while the military investigates"
I'll bet they're lining up to be in on that investigation, and I'll bet all the evidence will be very thoroughly examined.

17. So of redefines the police phrase "caught the suspect red handed"
apparently "red handed" modifies the word "caught" rather than the word "suspect".

7. Here's a pic of a really pretty AF female


Well, she used to be pretty.... she's dead.

This is a repost from: http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=show_topic&forum=102&topic_id=2678713#2679732

Here's a pic of the first AF female killed in Iraq.
I guess I'm just a sexist pig, but I think this sucks. Pretty young women with their whole lives ahead of them shouldn't die for nothing. Ugly young guys, too!

Note the date and that she was doing convoy support.

This country has no soul!

Airman killed in Iraq

9/30/2005 - SAN ANTONIO (AFPN) -- An improvised explosive device killed a female Airman during a convoy mission supporting Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Airman 1st Class Elizabeth Jacobson, 21, was providing convoy security Sept. 28 near Camp Bucca, Iraq, when the vehicle she was riding in was hit by an improvised explosive device.

The Riviera Beach, Fla., native was assigned to the 17th Security Forces Squadron at Goodfellow Air Force Base, Texas. Airman Jacobson had been in the Air Force for two years and had been deployed to Iraq for more than three months.

She is the first female Airman killed in the line of duty in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.

13. I was thinking the same thing.
I wonder if playboy/playgirl could do expanded series with pictures of at least 21,000 servicemen and women in it.

28. Amen, could you imagine if every nudie mag ran spreads of every military branch?
Heck, I'd even want to see them posing for gay magazines as well so they'd REALLY have to be dismissed then.

9. Doing this
in uniform is the reason the A.F. is coming done on her so hard. While on active duty you can do almost anything but make sure your not in uniform.

You're only supposed to pose with your nude prisoners. Not be nude yourself.

18. "She trains airmen in Lackland."
Can you say hot for teacher? If the AF brass had half a brain, they would send her to a recruiting post instead of firing her. That would boost their enlistment numbers.

22. The military repeatedly condones rape, but this reaks of consensuality.
Off with her head.

A bunch of Army women washing their tanks in the nude?
