Report of Investigation: General John E. Hyten U.S. Air Force

Administrative Investigations

The DoD Office of Inspector General initiated an investigation on September 12, 2018 into the allegations that General Hyten: misused military aircraft (MilAir) for personal reasons, allowed his spouse to travel on MilAir for inappropriate reasons, misused his protective service detail (PSD) for personal reasons, and misused his Government cell phone for personal matters.

We did not substantiate allegations that Gen Hyten used MilAir for personal reasons, allowed his spouse to travel on MilAir for inappropriate reasons, used his PSD for personal reasons, or used his Government cell phone for personal matters. Additionally, we did not substantiate allegations that Gen Hyten improperly released classified information.  We also found no evidence to support the complainant’s assertions about Gen Hyten’s emotional state.
