The former commander of Hill Air Force Base's 75th Air Base Wing made repeated comments to female subordinates that call into question his "judgment, values and maturity," according to a report by the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Defense.
The investigation was prompted by complaints arising since Brig. Gen. Scott Chambers began his duties as commander of the joint Defense Logistics Agency's Defense Supply Center in Philadelphia, a job from which he has since been dismissed.
The inspection does not include any allegations stemming from Chambers' time at Hill, where for most of 2006 and 2007 he led a unit that provides security, medical care, housing and other on-base services for tens of thousands of airmen and civilians. The report may, however, shed light on his service during that time. Airmen and their families complained that Hill's leaders, including Chambers, were unresponsive to their concerns about issues that included the cleanup of chemically tainted soils near base housing, the presence of mold in older base housing and the rise in suicides among Hill's work force.
