How the mighty have fallen.
THOUGHT HIMSELF "ABOVE THE LAW"
The first day of his court-martial in Kaisersalutern, Germany, the former commanding officer of the 173rd Airborne Combat Team, blinked. Prosecutors had him by the short hairs, so the arrogant and abrasive bird colonel decided to cut his losses. Taking a guilty plea on some of the charges, he hoped to escape with just dismissal from the service and loss of all pay and allowances. Kiss the pension good-bye.
SPURNED WIFE AND FATHER-IN-LAW DON'T SPEAK
Many times, "different spanks for different ranks" would prevail, but we predict Johnson will get the book thrown at him for embarrassing the Army in such a public way.
