Squadron leader dismissed

HURLBURT FIELD, Fla. -- The commander of the Osprey squadron that lost an aircraft in a crash last week has been dismissed. According to reports, the Air Force lost confidence in Lt. Col. Matt Glover, who headed Hurlburt Field's 8th Special Operations Squadron since May 2011. The CV-22 tiltrotor crashed June 13 at Eglin Air Force Base, injuring five airmen. The cause is being investigated, but mechanical failure is not considered a factor. (Source: Northwest Florida Daily News, AOL Defense, 06/21/12)
