Officer ousted over behavior

EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. – The maintenance commander of the 33rd Fighter Wing was removed from the post Monday for allegedly engaging in inappropriate behavior with subordinate female officers on his staff. Navy Capt. Lance Massey II oversaw about 400 maintainers who work on the F-35s. He held the position since January. An initial investigation determined he engaged in a pattern of inappropriate behaviors, including initiating personal conversations with female officers and sending unsolicited, off-duty, personal text messages.
