Report: Bragg 1-star removed from position – Army News | News from Afghanistan & Iraq – Army Times

 

The deputy commander of the 82nd Airborne Division was relieved in Afghanistan, the subject of what a spokesman said was a “criminal investigation,” according to a news report.

The Fayetteville (N.C.) Observer reported Friday that Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair, the 82nd’s deputy commander for support, was sent home from Afghanistan early this month.

Ben Abel, a Fort Bragg, N.C., spokesman, said the move was related to an investigation. “This is a criminal investigation,” Abel told the Fayetteville paper. Abel said Sinclair is now assigned as special assistant to the commanding general of the 18th Airborne Corps and Fort Bragg.

Abel said no information was available about what was behind the investigation or the time frame being reviewed.

Sinclair took his current post in July 2010. He graduated from West Virginia University and was commissioned in December 1985.
