The Air Force confirms demotion, her removal from active duty, but status remains unclear for Michelle Manhart. What do you think? I think she sure looks beautiful.
This posting has had alot of views over 25,000 and the potential for a great debate.
Former Air Force Staff Sgt. Michelle Manhart who posed nude for Playboy magazine has been formally removed from active duty, she has reported. She does not know if it's Whether it an honorable discharge or not.
Manhart, appeared in a six-page spread in Playboy's February issue, that got her removed from "extended active duty" and was also told that she was demoted in rank 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 since being removed from duty meant 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 offered The Associated Press a copy of a signed "request and authorization for separation" form that indicates her "character of service" was "honorable." It is not clear whether the form is an official discharge order.
A spokesman for Lackland Air Force Base, confirmed that Manhart was removed from extended active duty but said she was not discharged.
Michelle Manhart a wonderful mother of two beautiful children says the military's action against her hinged on the fact that she was pictured in the magazine wearing her uniform. She was featured in photographed in uniform yelling and holding weapons under the headline "Tough Love."
Manhart said she was given a letter of reprimand in late January, told not to talk to the media and that an "unfavorable information file" was established on her.
Her husband who is also in the military said he could not comment on any of the "administrative actions" taken against her because of privacy concerns. He said, though, that she was not prohibited from talking to the media.
Manhart said she is looking forward to pursuing a modeling and entertainment career.
Nobody over at Playboy has made comments on Manhart's case.
