Clarence L. Johnson, Jr. appeals from the final decision of the Merit Systems Protection Board, Docket No. PH07528910259, affirming the decision of the Department of the Army removing him from his position as a firefighter at Fort Eustis, Virginia. The basis for his removal was that he intentionally made false and malicious statements with the effect of harming or destroying the reputation of a co-worker.


We have carefully considered the record, the arguments and all of the submissions and, on the basis of the final decision of the board, dated May 8, 1991, the decision is affirmed.
