    Air Force SSGT in trouble for Playboy spread.

    Sergeant in trouble for Playboy photos
    Air Force blasts her steamy pictorial as ‘not representative’ of service

    Eric Gay / AP
    U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Michelle Manhart poses Thursday with the February issue of Playboy magazine in San Antonio. Manhart has been relieved of her duties pending an investigation.

    SAN ANTONIO - "Drop and give me 20!" is something you might hear Air Force Staff Sgt. Michelle Manhart yell to airmen trainees at Lackland Air Force Base. Drop her trousers is what Manhart did for Playboy magazine, and now it's landed her in trouble with the military.

    "Of what I did, nothing is wrong so I didn't anticipate anything, of course," Manhart said Thursday of the pictorial. "I didn't do anything wrong so I didn't think it would be a major issue."

    In a six-page spread in February's issue, hitting newsstands this week, Manhart is photographed in uniform yelling and holding weapons under the headline "Tough Love." The following pages show her partially clothed wearing her dog tags while working out, as well as completely nude.



    Manhart, 30, who is married with two children, has been relieved of her duties pending an investigation, according to Lackland AFB spokesman Oscar Balladares.

    "This staff sergeant's alleged action does not meet the high standards we expect of our airmen, nor does it comply with the Air Force's core values of integrity, service before self, and excellence in all we do. It is not representative of the many thousands of outstanding airmen who serve in the U.S. Air Force today," Balladares said, reading a statement.

    Experienced model
    Manhart has modeled since she was younger and joined the Air Force in 1994, spending time in Kuwait in 2002. The California native said she hopes the Playboy photo shoot will pave a way into an acting or modeling career.

    The pictorial's accompanying article mentioned the possibility of trouble for the brunette drill instructor. But when asked in the article whether it might get her in "hot water with Uncle Sam," Manhart replied: "I've been serving for 13 years, fighting for everyone's rights. Why wouldn't I be able to stand up for my own rights and participate in the freedoms that make this country what it is?"

    Manhart said she didn't see the magazine as an escape from the military. She also said she is completely committed to her job.

    "I've proven myself. ... They picked me to train our future airmen of the world," she said. "They picked me to train these individuals so if they elect to say I don't have (integrity), then that's their opinion."

    This has happened before
    Playboy magazine spokeswoman Theresa Hennessey said two active-duty women have posed nude in Playboy in the past. Both were in the Navy, she said.

    One, Sherry Lynne White, was discharged in July 2000 after posing nude for the magazine. She had been scheduled to be released from duty that October.

    Another, Frederica Spilman, received an honorable discharge, which she had sought before posing, and a letter expressing the Navy's dismay less than a week after the June 1998 issue hit newsstands.

    Spilman appeared in the magazine wearing opened flight jackets, camouflage lingerie and dog tags. The six-page pictorial, under the heading "Fly Girl," also included pictures of Spilman in her Navy uniform and flight suit.

    Hennessey added that seven women also were featured in a "Women of the Armed Forces" spread in April 1980.

    Manhart said the shoot came about after she went on a casting call and kept getting called back for test shots. The February pictorial was shot last spring, she said.

    "The Air Force says go do something amazing, and I think I pretty much did it," she said.

    I'm all for (most) women taking off their clothes, but not when they start out in someone else's uniform. Be it the Air Force uniform, the Home Depot apron, or the Wal-Mart smock. Take your clothes off if you want, but don't go using your former employer's name and reputation to get people to look.

    The same thing happened over here a couple of years ago a female army PTI lance corporal posed for a newspaper topless in an attempt to start a modeling career, once the novelty wore off she was thrown out the army and the modeling work dried up. I think she works for the post office now.

    I'm not sure if she was in her actual Air Force uniform during the shoot, but if she WAS, then I think you're both out of your gourds. Not about doing the shoot, but to do it in the uniform of your country is tactless and disgraceful, and to gawk about being discharged is pure "Me Generation" horseshit. Let's not even talk about the regulations being broken by appearing in an improper uniform (). Let's just focus on the fact that the uniform worn by today's military is forged and dyed by the blood and sweat of those that have come before us, and that the very appearance of a military uniform is sacred to many, including me, and is something to be held reverently. Not tossed aside in some cheap studio shoot.

    No one says you can't take off your clothes for money, but this EASILY falls under "Conduct Unbecoming". Lose the bitch, let her take off her own clothes for money.

    If she was not in any sort of official uniform, just generic camo type stuff, then I have less of a problem.

    Yup.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,

    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.

    It's behavior unbecoming of an officer, and a violation of the Code of Conduct.

    She should be busted down to the lowest rank, and have her stripes publicly ripped off her shoulders.

    Except she's not an officer. But it's still conduct unbecoming. I have to wonder is she's trying to get out of the Air Force. Maybe they should bust her down and extend her enlistment term. It is wartime after all.

    Isn't SSGT an NCO?

    Not only busted down to the lowest level, but sent to the shittiest posting they can think off...I think they have an Air Force posting in the Aleutians.

    Yup, SSgt is an NCO, but I don't believe they call the violation in this case, "conduct unbecoming an officer." Then again, I've not been in the military for almost 29 years, so who knows!

    I think the Aleutians would be a great place.
