"I hope the bastard gets what's coming to him," an officer who served under COL James Johnson told a MilitaryCorruption.com reporter.

The bald-headed, beady-eyed bird colonel has made his share of enemies since he graduated from West Point in 1986. Now they are eagerly watching developments as the Army announced the former commanding officer of the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team will face court-martial on June 10 in Kaiserslauten, Germany.

Johnson, the son of a retired general, if convicted, could receive up to five years in the slammer and a dishonorable discharge. He's accused of filing numerous fraudulent travel vouchers.

AN IRAQI GAL PAL, "CRAZY" WIFE, AND "MASTURBATION"

But that's not all. His estranged wife claims Johnson had an affair with an Iraqi woman. Her hubby retaliated by
calling her "crazy" and having his spouse of 23 years kicked off the base in Vicenza, Italy.

Johnson said - we kid you not - his wife was "going around acting like she was a colonel herself" and embarrassed him by teaching officers wives "how to masturbate." Mrs. Johnson was senior advisor to the 173rd's Family Readiness Group until her infuriated hubby fired her.

The bitter wife blasted Johnson for allegedly spending $27,000 on gifts for his supposed "gal pal." He fired back, claiming she tried to "kidnap" their son and take him with her back to the States. Divorce proceedings are underway and the marriage, as the Germans say, is "kaput."

COL Johnson, "well-known" critics tell us, for "screaming like a madman" and "dressing down senior officers in front of enlisted troops," had been on the fast track to wearing a brigadier general's star. Now the obnoxious officer will be lucky to stay out of prison.
