Army Suspends Major General

            Maj. Gen. Michael T. Harrison was suspended today of his duties as the commanding general of United States Army Japan and I Corps (Forward). 

             Maj. Gen. Harrison was suspended following actions taken today by Secretary of the Army John McHugh and Chief of Staff Gen. Ray Odierno due to allegations that Harrison failed in his duties as a commander to report or properly investigate an allegation of sexual assault.  

            Maj. Gen. James C. Boozer, the former deputy commanding general of United States Army Europe, will serve as the interim commander until the investigation is complete and the issue resolved.
