U.S. Air Force officials say obscene material has no place in work areas and are taking steps this week to eliminate it from an Ohio base.
The Dayton Daily News reports that Air Force officials started hunting for obscene material in all work areas at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base .
The Air Force ordered the inspections at all of its installations in light of sexual misconduct complaints to the service's top military leader. Offensive material could include pictures of scantily clad women in calendars, posters and elsewhere.
The Air Force says the cancelation of a computer modernization program will cost 115 contract employees their jobs at Wright-Patterson Air Force base.
Base spokesman Daryl Mayer said Thursday that cancelation of the Expeditionary Combat Support System program also means that an additional 55 civilian and military employees will be reassigned from that program.
Mayer says the canceled program had been intended to replace some older computer systems to meet statutory requirements for financial and audit readiness mandated by Congress.
