Nellis Air Force Base issued a statement on its Facebook page announcing Lovely was “removed from her supervisory role while leadership continues to gather facts regarding this incident” and saying that it was an opportunity to “see if this is a broader issue on base” and to talk with airmen about good order and discipline and the Air Force core values.
