BASE PROGRAM FOR CIVILIANS UNDER REVIEW

A program that allowed the woman at the center of a Tampa scandal to have free access to MacDill Air Force Base is under review on orders of the base commander. A Pentagon spokesman said Air Force Col. Scott DeThomas, commander of MacDill's 6th Air Mobility Wing, ordered the review after the Tampa Bay Times first reported socialite Jill Kelley was one of 800 civilians participating in the program, called Friends of MacDill. Kelley's pass to MacDill was suspended Tuesday pending an investigation.
