Retired General Suspended, Being Investigated By US Army After Tweet Directed At Jill Biden

The U.S. Army suspended and is investigating Lt. Gen. Gary Volesky after he tweeted in response to First Lady Jill Biden’s remarks about the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe V. Wade.

The U.S. Army suspended and is investigating Lt. Gen. Gary Volesky after he tweeted in response to First Lady Jill Biden’s remarks about the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe V. Wade.

Volesky tweeted “glad to see you finally know what a woman is” in response to the First Lady’s June 24 tweet voicing her disapproval of SCOTUS’ Roe v. Wade decision, according to USA Today.

His tweet has since been deleted as the U.S. Army announced its decision to suspend and investigate Volesky on Saturday. 

Volesky served the military in a mentorship role before suspension and was the former head of communications for the U.S. Army, the Washington Post reported. 

He received the military’s third-highest combat honor, the silver star, for his efforts in Baghdad during the Iraq War.

A military expert called Volesky’s response to the First Lady, a “breach of decorum for a retired military officer” by a military expert, according to USA Today.

Volesky replied on Twitter, “This is all about partisan politics.”
