An image purported to be from a fund-raising calendar that shows a battalion commander’s wife topless. — EMAIL FROM “CONCERNED ALASKANS”

Controversy over a lieutenant colonel’s wife posing for a racy pin-up calendar has sparked an investigation at Fort Greely, Alaska, and drawn attention at the Army’s highest levels for the remote and tiny post.

The military is investigating to determine whether soldiers with the Alaska National Guard unit at Fort Greely were involved in the calendar or conducted themselves improperly after an anonymous complaint was sent to Army Secretary John McHugh on Tuesday morning.

The anonymous email, sent to McHugh and other top Army officials, was purported to be from “Concerned Alaskans” and complained that the wife of Lt. Col. Joseph Miley, commander of the 49th Missile Defense Battalion, acted indecently.

The email, sent to the highest levels of the Army, contained photos said to be of Miley’s wife Tracy in a state of semi-undress.

Lt. Gen. Richard Formica, commander of the battalion’s parent unit, Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Strategic Command, responded in an email to McHugh and other senior leaders that he deemed the photos simply to be “risqué” and said the battalion commander’s wife’s behavior had not been inappropriate.
