A top Air Force Academy official has been cleared of proselytizing non-Christian cadets at the school.

Brigadier General Johnny Weida had been accused of using a religious code to facilitate proselytizing. He had taught some cadets a chant that some said was a call to convert others.

Air Force spokeswoman Jennifer Stephens says Weida has readily acknowledged that his actions were inappropriate and has taken, "positive, visible corrective actions that reflect his true character."

In June, the Air Force Inspector General cleared Weida of six other allegations that he improperly shared his faith, saying he did nothing wrong. That including telling cadets they were accountable to God first and urging them to pray.
