of wrong-doing by Col. David Augustine.


FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): All claims of impropriety at the Fort Wayne Air National Guard Base are determined to be unfounded.

Officials with the Indiana National Guard and the 122nd Fighter Wing held a press conference Wednesday morning to address their findings from a recent internal investigation.

There were more than 11 claims against Col. David Augustine, the commander of the base, including the use of an A-10 combat jet for personal use and misappropriation of funds, but a military investigator from Oklahoma determined that all of those claims were well under the standard of military operations.
