Generals erred by taking part in Christian video

Fund-raising video for the Christian Embassy
High-ranking U.S. Army and Air Force personnel violated military regulations when they participated in a promotional video for a private evangelical organization, according to a report by the Pentagon’s Office of Inspector General.

A Pentagon spokesperson said August 6 that it would be up to the army and air force whether to discipline the military brass involved, but said no action is expected against top civilian employees.

The 47-page report, released on July 27, found that three air force officers—Major General Jack Catton, Major General Peter Sutton and a colonel whose name was not disclosed—and three army officers—Brigadier General Bob Caslen, Brigadier General Vincent Brooks and a lieutenant colonel, also not identified—were wrong to take part in a fund-raising video for the Christian Embassy, based in Arlington, Virginia.
