It is more wide spread than I would like to think with the top military brass. Recent examples include:

Former 173rd Commander:

Former 82nd DCO:

Former AFRICOM CDR Not related to adultery but applies to ethics and setting the example:

Former USAREUR CDR (no reason given for retirement):

Discussion at work also included the number of Navy O5/O6's relieved in the past couple years, but since I am not in the Navy, I won't further comment.

Interesting times, but is it demonstrably different from the past (other than actual punishment for top brass is much more common than in the past)?
