We may all recall the brouhaha over Air Force trainer Michelle Manhart and her “modeling” debut in the pages of Playboy. That event led to her demotion. One wonders how much longer she is going to remain in the AF.

I just received a press release from PETA announcing that Manhart’s latest career move has been into the world of, um, activism by joining PETA’s anti-fur campaign: Air Force Drill Sergeant Michelle Manhart Strips for PETA:

Having proudly served our country since 1994, Manhart recently made headlines when the Air Force demoted her for posing in—as well as very much out of—her uniform in the February issue of Playboy. As feisty as she is fabulous, Manhart stood up for her right to express herself and eventually resigned. Just as passionate about protecting animals from abuse, this first-class fox now appears in the PETA campaign against fur, which also features ads with Pamela Anderson, Tommy Lee, and Dennis Rodman.


Manhart posed for the patriotically themed ad because she believes in liberty and justice for all animals.

Or because she is trying to launch some sort of post-military career. (Just a guess, of course–just call me cynical).

The press release includes the pic in question (or one of several, for all I know). It is below the fold and is PG, although not necessarily safe for work. The JPG they sent was huge, so I shrank this one down for display.

    2. May I reiterate my support for the troops–especially Manhart. I’ll support her any time!

    3. The Air Force disowned her after the first incident, and no doubt her National Guard unit separated her administratively quickly and quietly. I doubt that she was in uniform for more than 30 days after the Playboy hit the street. The PETA press release says demoted, but the previous post discussed her discharge, so it seems more than likely that she was out of the service.
