Sarge sacked over Playboy pics

A US Air Force drill sergeant has been demoted – for posing nude for Playboy magazine.

Michelle Manhart, who appeared in a six-page spread in the February issue, has been demoted from staff sergeant to senior airman.

“I’m disappointed in our system,” Manhart said. “They went too far with it.”

Manhart said she was reverted to her Air National Guard status and that she submitted a “resignation” to the Guard.

She was a member of the Iowa Air National Guard before going on extended active duty, reports Sky News.

The 30-year-old mother of two, said the military’s action against her hinged on the fact that she was pictured wearing her uniform.

She was photographed in uniform yelling and holding weapons under the headline ‘Tough Love’.

Additional pages showed her partially clothed wearing dog tags and fully nude. After the pictures went public in January, Manhart was relieved of her duties pending an investigation.
