Don't Show, Don't Tell

An Air Force Staff Sergeant stationed in San Antonio has been relieved of her duties after posing in Playboy.

The Chron has the story:

In a six-page spread in February's issue, hitting newsstands this week, [Michelle] Manhart is photographed in uniform yelling and holding weapons under the headline "Tough Love." The following pages show her partially clothed wearing her dog tags while working out, as well as completely nude.

Manhart, 30, who is married with two children, has been relieved of her duties pending an investigation, according to Lackland AFB spokesman Oscar Balladares.

"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. It is not representative of the many thousands of outstanding airmen who serve in the U.S. Air Force today," Balladares said, reading a statement.

Sounds reasonable, although we can't help but wonder if the military wasn't responsible for Manhart's spread-worthy bod.

Manhart's MySpace account has been cancelled, but here's the cached version. Thanks, Google! -- Keith Plocek
