Franklin was commander of the 31st FW from 2007 to 2009. I was assigned to Aviano AB and PCS’ed back to the States in May ‘09. I’m surprised he made it to 3 star. His family was very controversial. His wife had parking plaques made up that stated ‘Spouse General’ and would get her own parking spots on Base. Pissed a lot of people off. His daughter had been caught in the dorms and caught coming through the gate with drugs in her vehicle. A few of us when we greeted him would address him as Col instead of Gen because he was frocked and wearing the Generals rank. He used to get mad....lol. I don’t have any love lost for the man.
