The senior enlisted advisor to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs has been suspended from his post due to an Army Inspector General investigation into "alleged misconduct."


Army Command Sgt. Maj. John W. Troxell has been temporarily reassigned from his post as the right-hand man to Gen. Joseph Dunford to taking the role of special assistant to the Vice Director of the Joint Staff pending the outcome of the investigation, according to a Pentagon media release. The release did not offer any detail of what the allegations were.

"Due to the ongoing Army investigation, it would be inappropriate to comment on the nature of the alleged misconduct or investigation details," Col. Patrick Ryder, a Joint Staff spokesperson, said in a statement. "We will wait for a full accounting of the facts and will not presuppose any findings or outcomes."

Two U.S. military service members were killed in Afghanistan on Wednesday, the Resolute Support mission announced in a press release.

Their identities are being withheld pending notification of next of kin, the command added.

A total of 16 U.S. troops have died in Afghanistan so far in 2019. Fourteen of those service members have died in combat including two service members killed in an apparent insider attack on July 29.

Two U.S. troops in Afghanistan have been killed in non-combat incidents and a sailor from the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln was declared dead after falling overboard while the ship was supporting operations in Afghanistan.

At least two defense contractors have also been killed in Afghanistan. One was a Navy veteran and the other had served in the Army.
