Madame President wrote on June 24: “For almost 50 years, women have had the right to make their own decisions about their bodies. Today this right has been stolen from us.” The general replied: “I'm glad to see that you finally understand what it means to be a woman.”
According to USA Today, the general is now under investigation. Volevki is the owner of the Silver Star for bravery received in Iraq. He advised senior officers and members of the military who participated in team games and other military activities.

Experts believe that the general's response was a violation of decorum and inappropriate criticism for a retired military man. Moreover, this is not the first time that Voleski has allowed himself to go over officials.
