Records Contradict Majewski on Military Punishment

“J.R. Majewski (R) has centered his campaign for a competitive Ohio congressional seat around his biography as an Air Force veteran. But one of the big questions that has surfaced is why Majewski was told he could not reenlist in the Air Force after his initial four years were up,” the AP reports.

“Majewski’s campaign said last week that he was punished and demoted after getting in a ‘brawl’ in an Air Force dormitory in 2001. Military records obtained since then, however, offer a different account of the circumstances, which military legal experts say would have played a significant role in the decision to bar him from reenlisting. They indicate Majewski’s punishment and demotion were the result of him being stopped for driving drunk on a U.S. air base in Japan in September 2001.”
