Gen. William Ward demoted, fined thousands for improper spending

  • $82,000ordered to be repaid by General William Ward to the U.S. government. Ward 63, had a planned retirement in 2011 derailed by a 17 month Defense Department investigation into his spending habits. They found that he’d misspent thousands on travel and other expenses, earning him (in addition to the demanded repayment) demotion from his four-star rank. Now, Ward will retire as a three-star general, yet another military figure fallen by scandal, alongside the rapidly widening and attention-consuming Petraeus investigation. source
