An Army captain has been relieved of his command because of the sexually explicit emails he exchanged with former Des Moines school superintendent Nancy Sebring.
The Army's recruiting division is investigating 42-year-old Captain John Hintz conduct and whether he sent any explicit emails from his military account. Hintz had been leading the Army's recruiting efforts in the Des Moines area.
Army spokesman John Largent says this type of conduct doesn't uphold Army values.
Sebring had sought unsuccessfully to block the release of more of her emails that identified Hintz as her lover.
Sebring was hired as superintendent in Omaha, Neb. She abruptly left her Iowa job in May. She lost the Omaha job after the emails became public.
