Military Service and Possing for Playboy=Bad

Air Force Strips Playboy Poser of Status

SAN ANTONIO Feb 15, 2007 (AP)— An Air Force drill sergeant who posed nude for Playboy magazine has been removed from active duty, she and the Air Force said Wednesday. Michelle Manhart, who appeared in a six-page spread in Playboy's February issue, said she got word Friday that she was removed from "extended active duty" and was also told that she was demoted from staff sergeant to senior airman.

"I'm disappointed in our system," Manhart told The Associated Press on Wednesday. "They went too far with it."

Manhart said that she was reverted to her Air National Guard status and that she submitted a "resignation" to the Guard, which she said is pending. Manhart was a member of the Iowa Air National Guard before going on extended active duty.

Oscar Balladares, a spokesman for Lackland Air Force Base, confirmed that Manhart was removed from extended active duty Friday but said Lackland did not discharge her.

"She was removed from active duty status, and thus reverted to National Guard status," Balladares said. "It is not up to the Air Force it is not our jurisdiction to discharge her."

Lt. Col. Greg Hapgood, a spokesman for the Iowa National Guard, said that because the Guard did not have "documentation of her separation" from the Air Force, it did not have her on duty status.

Manhart, a 30-year-old mother of two, said the military's action against her hinged on the fact that she was pictured wearing her uniform.

She was photographed in uniform yelling and holding weapons under the headline "Tough Love." The following pages showed her partially clothed wearing dog tags and fully nude. After the pictorial hit newsstands in January, Manhart was relieved of her duties pending an investigation.

Well you're not supposed to do anything like that in uniform. I assume the same thing would happen if a male soldier posed in Playgirl, well that is unless the US military has double standards for men vs women (nah, never of course). Yes you can't be openly gay or pose in Playboy, but you can be a convicted felon. They are relaxing their standards about felons, I read something about that a couple of days ago.

I heard about that, there also relaxing there standard on overweight people? I think that second part is a great idea, let over weight(not to overweight) join loose the weight and become a soldier. I should call up the recruiter and find out about this. Cause if they say yes the will take me. I will bid you all farewell for a few years.

Soldiers aren't pretty. We don't want to send the message that they are. Soldiers are masculine, tough, and ugly.
