    A 4-star general in the U.S. Army is under investigation for living large, spending hundreds of thousands of taxpayer’s dollars.

    Gen. William Ward headed the Army’s Africa command until last year.  He’s close to retirement, but still on duty at the Pentagon.  Allegations are that he spent lavishly on himself, family members and others, on travel, hotels and other pricey things.

    Pentagon officials say the investigation could lead Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to demote Ward before retirement, which might cost the General more in lost retirement pay than he’s alleged to have spent improperly.
