Embattled Walter Reed commander submits retirement request

The "embattled" former commander of the US Army's Walter Reed Medical Center, which has come under fire for giving "substandard" outpatient care to veterans, has submitted his resignation request. But one cable news channel is reporting that Lt. Gen. Kevin Kiley was "actually fired."

Lt. Gen. Kevin Kiley, the Army's surgeon general and commander of the US Army Medical Command, headed Walter Reed from 2002 to 2004, and was recently appointed interim head there for a spell after Maj. Gen. George W. Weightman, who commanded the hospital the past six months, was fired.

This is an immoral idiot that is actually ALLOWED to leave the military when the troops are on "stop-loss"?

How can HE retire when everyone else is required to serve 200 years per enlistment? With no bennies?
