The former commanding general of the Army Sustainment Command on Arsenal Island has been demoted and removed from his latest position. The Stars and Stripes reports Duane Gamble had most recently been serving as a lieutenant general and deputy chief of staff for logistics.

Gamble led the ASC for two years, from 2017 to 2019.

He was suspended in February, pending an investigation, and relieved and re-assigned this month after the Army's inspector general ruled he engaged in "counterproductive leadership."

Gamble is a 37-year Army veteran, and served deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan and led other top Army logistics units including Army Sustainment Command and the 21st Theatre Sustainment Command.

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois. While a graduate student in the Public Affairs Reporting Program at the University of Illinois at Springfield (then known as Sangamon State University), he got his first taste of public radio, covering Illinois state government for WUIS. Here in the Quad Cities, Herb worked for WHBF Radio before coming to WVIK in 1987. Herb also produces the weekly public affairs feature Midwest Week – covering the news behind the news by interviewing reporters about the stories they cover.
