Air Force Warfare Center commander relieved for an unprofessional relationship

The commander of the Air Force Warfare Center at Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada was relieved of command Sunday.

Maj. Gen. Peter Gersten is accused of having an unprofessional relationship.

“The Air Force holds leaders to high standards and expects them to uphold the core values of the service at all times,” Air Combat Command spokeswoman Leah Garton said in a press release. “There is currently an on-going investigation and additional details will not be released at this time.”

ACC commander Gen. Mike Holmes fired Gersten “due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command based on an alleged unprofessional relationship,” the command said in a Wednesday release.

Brig. Gen. David Snoddy, vice commander of the warfare center, has assumed Gersten’s command, according to the Air Force Times.

Maj. Gen. Charles Corcoran, who was already scheduled to assume command of the Warfare Center will take command in July. Until then, Snoddy will manage the responsibilities of the role.
