It must take a lot for a 4-star general to be relieved from duties, right? What did Gen. Kevin P. Byrnes do to earn the distinction of being the first general of that status to be removed in modern times? Was he overseeing the deplorable treatment of prisoners at Abu Ghraib or Guantanamo? Did he urinate on copies of the Qu'ran?
Nope. He had an extra-marital affair.
