General Suspended, Put Under Investigation After Responding to Jill Biden’s Tweet on Abortion

Breaking News

The U.S. Army suspended and is investigating Lt. Gen. Gary Volesky after he tweeted in response to first lady Jill Biden’s remarks about the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade.

Volesky tweeted, “Glad to see you finally know what a woman is,” in response to the first lady’s June 24 tweet voicing her disapproval of the court’s Roe v. Wade decision, according to USA Today. His tweet has since been deleted as the U.S. Army announced its decision to suspend and investigate Volesky on Saturday. 


Volesky served the military in a mentorship role before suspension and was the former head of communications for the U.S. Army, The Washington Post reported. He received the military’s third-highest combat honor, the Silver Star, for his efforts in Baghdad during the Iraq War.
