Malmstrom Air Force Base commander Col. Rob Stanley has resigned, following recent cheating allegations at the Great Falls base.

According to a letter Stanley sent to his Malmstrom airmen, he wrote, "I represent this wing to the world, and we let the American people down on my watch. With that realization, and the genuine hope that my action will stir even the most apathetic hearts to action, I have decided to volunteer my resignation from this post effective immediately. This request has been accepted. I have also requested, and been approved for, retirement from the United States Air Force. If this sacrifice by Cheryl and me influences just one airman to stand up for what's right the next time they are confronted by immorality, it will have been worth every tear and sleepless night.

"But, I do have one last command: Each and every one of you must now give your full allegiance, support and enthusiasm to your new commander. I know that you will forge an even stronger team than the one we were so carefully building."

The Secretary of the Air Force and the commander of Air Force Global Strike Command are scheduled to brief the press this afternoon.

We will update you as we learn more.
