Air Force head­quar­ters is warn- ing air­men not to pose in the nude.

The mes­sage was sent two weeks ago af­ter Air Force Staff Sgt. Michelle Man­hart posed nude for Play­boy Mag­a­zine’s Fe­bru­ary is­sue. She in­formed su­pe­ri­ors ahead of time. They found a copy, opened it and promptly sus­pended her from her in­struc­tor’s job at Lack­land Air Force Base, Texas.

“This ac­tion does not meet the high stan­dards we ex­pect of our air­men, nor does it com­ply with the Air Force’s core val­ues of in­tegrity, ser­vice be­fore self and ex­cel­lence in all we do,” the mes­sage said. “As Amer­ica’s air­men, it is im­per­a­tive that we main­tain the moral high ground. Our na­tion de­pends on it.”

The As­so­ci­ated Press re­ports Sgt. Man­hart “is pho­tographed in uni­form yelling and hold­ing weapons un­der the head­line ‘Tough Love.’ The fol­low­ing pages show her par­tially clothed, wear­ing her dog tags while work­ing out, as well as com­pletely nude.”
