A former commander at Whiteman Air Force Base will take forced retirement over several misconduct allegations.
Capt. Earon Brown, spokesman for the Air Force Global Strike Command, confirmed Tuesday that Brig. Gen. Paul Tibbets IV will stop work on Oct. 19, and retire Dec. 1.
Brown says the Air Force began investigating in May 2017 after concerns were raised about Tibbets, who was commanding the 509th Bomb Wing near Knob Noster, Missouri, at the time.
