Louisiana National Guard’s Highest Officer Fires Adviser
The Louisiana National Guard's highest officer has fired his top enlisted adviser over allegations of sexual harassment.
A spokesman for Louisiana's National Guard, Lt. Col. Michael Kazmierzak, says a guard member complained about 53-year-old Sgt. Major Tommy Caillier about a week and a half ago.
He says investigators found there had been sexual harassment, and he says they are looking into an allegation of sexual assault.
Kazmierzak says Caillier asked for representation by the regional trial defense counsel.
Caillier was Major General Glenn Curtis's top adviser on all issues dealing with enlisted people in the national guard.
Kazmierzak says Curtis removed Caillier from active duty. Command Sgt. Major James Mays is his replacement.
