Air Force Staff Seargant in Trouble for Playboy Spread

Air Force staff sergeant Michelle Manhart has been relieved of her duties (pending an investigation) for posing nude for Playboy, officials have announced.  Manhart, who is married with two children, appears in the February issue, appears first in uniform yelling and holding weapons under the headline “Tough Love,” with subsequent shots showing her partially clothed, wearing her dog tags while working out, as well as completely nude.Manhart joined the Air Force in 1994, spending time in Kuwait in 2002. She trains airmen at Lackland Air Force Base, and told Playboy that she considers herself as standing up for her rights.

“Of what I did, nothing is wrong, so I didn’t anticipate anything, of course,” Manhart, 30, told The Associated Press. “I didn’t do anything wrong, so I didn’t think it would be a major issue.”

The Air Force disagrees.

“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,” a spokesman said.
