ELLSWORTH AIR FORCE BASE, S.D. – On Monday, the commander of the 28th Bomb Wing Col. Joseph Sheffield announced that he has removed Chief Master Sgt. Justin Deisch from his position as the 28th BW command chief.
According to a release from Ellsworth AFB, this decision was based on Deisch’s behavior that demonstrated a lack of respect, judgement and professionalism expected of a senior non-commissioned officer.
“Inappropriate conduct undermines standards of good order and discipline,” said Col. Joseph Sheffield, 28th BW commander. “Based on the results of a thorough investigation, Chief Deisch’s removal was necessary to uphold these high standards. All Airmen should be treated with dignity and respect, and senior leaders should set the example for subordinates by exercising sound judgement and decision-making both on and off duty.”
The 28th BW command chief is the primary advisor to the commander on all matters concerning the nearly 3,200 enlisted Airmen who support the largest B-1 combat wing in the U.S. Air Force.
