Brig. Gen. Kristin Goodwin addresses her basic cadets after they finished their 4 1/2-mile march out to Jack’s Valley at the United States Air Force Academy on July 22. Brig. Gen. Goodwin is the commandant of cadets.

The Air Force Inspector General is investigating Air Force Academy Brig. Gen. Kristin Goodwin, who was recently removed as commandant of cadets, the school’s superintendent confirmed Wednesday.

Goodwin was removed by her boss and the school’s head, Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria, amid an investigation. Goodwin had led military training at the academy since 2017 and only had about a month left in that position before leaving for a job at the Pentagon.

Silveria confirmed that investigation Wednesday morning before the Board of Visitors, the school’s civilian oversight board. However, he offered few other details and the board members asked for no clarification.
