the reasons for his dismissal.
Earlier in the same interview, I had asked Greene about his dismissal from the Air Force. His answer was, somewhat typically, cryptic.“I left the Air Force in September ’05,” he said.“I ran through some problems, dealing with rank. It’s a long story. I guess that will be the next thing they will be focusing on.” I asked him repeatedly to clarify further, and he declined to do so.
But less than an hour later, he was encouraging me to pursue the story of http://www.obdii.co.uk/benz-bmw-diagnostic-to... his Air Force dismissal. He later declined to help by granting permission to one of his former officers to discuss his service. An Air Force public affairs officer said Greene was discharged through an administrative action, not a court martial, which is consistent with Greene’s characterization of an “involuntary” discharge. Otherwise, Air Force officials said they would not discuss the details.
After serving in the South Carolina Air National Guard during college, Greene served in the active-duty Air Force from July 25, 2002 to September 1, 2005. He served his duty at Shaw Air Force Base, which is located about 25 miles from his family home in Manning, South Carolina. He was in the intel field, an Air Force spokeswoman says, adding that when he left his rank was airman first class to be expected for someone who had been in uniform his length of time. But it s a very junior rank. Greene described his work at Shaw as an “intelligence specialist.”
“I’m not going to go into the duties,” Greene told me.“It’s classified work.
While at Shaw, Greene won a row of ribbons and medals, according to Air Force records. They included the Global War on Terror Service Medal, the National Defense Service Medal, the Good Conduct Medal, the Armed Forces Reserve Medal, the Air Reserve Forces Meritorious Service Medal, and the Air Force Longevity Service Medal. They re all kind of standard, the spokeswoman says. So long as you don t mess up, you ll get them.
