Air Force general, who was called “female superhero” in recruiting ad, has been fired

A female two-star general in the Air Force has been fired from her role as overseer for a top-secret programs office, following several Inspector General investigations.

Major General Dawn Dunlop was relieved from her role as director of the DOD Special Access Programs Central Office, which manages and controls the military’s most secretive programs.

According to the Air Force Times, the officer of the Inspector General reportedly urged the Pentagon to fire Dunlop, citing that she was being investigated on multiple fronts.

Dunlop was allegedly quite abusive towards other servicemembers and was known to berate and scream at them over the phone.

At one point, sources claim that Dunlop finally snapped on May 31, when she lost her temper with USAF civilians. Acting quickly, one civilian immediately contacted Pentagon acquisition official Ellen Lord, who walked over to the SAPCO office and removed Dunlop.

Dunlop’s interim replacement has been identified as USAF Colonel Bruce Monroe, and it is unknown who will permanently fill the position.

An accomplished pilot of fighter aircraft ranging from the F-16 to the F-22, Dunlop is the highest-ranking female fighter pilot in the USAF, having graduated from the US Air Force Academy in 1988.

Dunlop was featured in the USAF’s February “female superhero” recruiting ad that coincided with the release of the movie “Captain Marvel.”
