The Army would not comment on a Washington Post report that the inspector general upheld an unspecified misconduct allegation against Superintendent Lt. Gen. David H. Huntoon. The newspaper, citing documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, reported on the investigation Saturday.
"Lieutenant General David Huntoon plans to retire this summer after 40 years of honorable and distinguished service," Wright wrote in an email.
A spokeswoman for the Department of Defense's inspector general said she can't comment on whether Huntoon was investigated. Spokeswoman Bridget Serchak said reports of investigations that substantiate senior official misconduct are made available through the Freedom of Information Act.
Huntoon graduated from West Point in 1973 and became the 58th superintendent of the venerable academy on the Hudson River in July 2010.
