THE COLONEL IS A CROOK AND BIGAMIST
Copyright © 2012 MilitaryCorruption.com
He was clearly a man "out of control," as many of our readers told us via e-mail when we first broke the story of COL James H. Johnson III's relief of command and pending court-martial.
The beady-eyed skinhead, known as a "screamer" and officer who enjoyed berating subordinates, apparently thought he was above the law. However, his extreme arrogance and recklessness finally brought him down.
COLONEL "FORGED" DIVORCE DOCUMENT
Next week, the man who many thought would one day wear general's stars, goes on court-martial in Germany. The fired commander of the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, faces a laundry list of charges which include fraud, forgery, making false official statements, adultery and being a bigamist.
KICKS WIFE OUT, MOVES MISTRESS IN
But it was Johnson's high-handed actions in slandering his wife of more than 20 years - claiming he had to fire Kristina as senior family relations counselor at his Vicenza, Italy base because she supposedly taught officers' wives how to "masturbate" - and then removing her from their home and sending her packing to the United States, that amazed even hardened observers of Johnson's notorious bad behavior.
HE HAD TO BE "CRAZY" TO DO IT
Mrs. Johnson didn't know about her signature being forged until she applied for Tricare. She was denied the benefit because COL Johnson was married to his Iraqi lover, news to Kristina, who went straight to the Army CID and reported him.
