URGENT - READER ALERT
AIR FORCE NURSE STATIONED
AT WILFORD HALL
This is an urgent appeal to our many readers in the Denver, Colorado area and beyond.
Please help us and the authorities find out what happened to an attractive, 33 year-old Air Force nurse, assigned to the 59th Medical Wing at Wilford Hall Medical Center in Texas. She disappeared Nov. 19 after leaving her brother's house in Littleton, Colo. "to go shopping" and has not been seen since.
Nonnie Dotson is the loving mother of 16-month old daughter Savannah and is not considered suicidal. She was due to be discharged from the Air Force after a normal active duty tour in March 2007, so we don't feel any overseas deployment - highly unlikely in the time frame left anyway - had anything to do with her disappearance.
GUARD "POLITICAL CORRECTNESS"
The so-called "leadership" of the Kentucky Army National Guard has wimped out when it comes to disciplining women members of the 410th Quartermaster Company who merrily posed for naked and semi-nude pictures, holding M-16 rifles and "wearing" tiny American flag decals on certain intimate parts of their bodies.
When a CD containing some 232 images was leaked to our friends at the Louisville Courier-Journal and they wrote about it, the brass bent over backwards, or was it forwards, to be "politically correct." Vowing an "investigation," the final result was actually a white-wash.
None of the 11 women in the 120-member unit were properly disciplined, in fact, they all got to deploy to Iraq with their company! The brass decided to impose "non-judicial punishment" on the offenders, which they think safely keeps what happened from prying eyes of reporters and MilitaryCorruption.com. NJP, as it's called, can consist of as much as a fine and loss of a stripe, to as little as a "slap on the wrist," a wink, and toothless admonition "don't do that any more."
AFB CAPTAIN COULD GET LIFE IN PRISON
Right on the heels of the Maj. Jill Metzger "cover-up," comes yet another scandal to rock the foundations of the Air Force. The former chief of patient administration at Eglin AFB regional hospital will be court-martialed early next year on multiple counts of rape, kidnapping and forcible sodomy, MilitaryCorruption.com has learned.
The seamy details of the disgusting case won't help Air Force recruiting efforts when the mainstream media covers this. Capt. Devery Taylor, a boyish-looking 37 year-old bachelor, assigned to the 96th Medical Support Squadron, is accused of drugging the drinks of his potential victims, then committing sexual assault upon them in his Fort Walton Beach, Fla. apartment.
It was a horrified airman from Hurlburt Field that blew the whistle on the captain last March, reporting his attack to O.S.I. agents. The enlisted man, whose identity has not been disclosed, needed medical attention after the incident. He has since been transferred to a base in California, but is expected to return to Florida and testify against Devery once court-martial proceedings begin.
SQUADRON C.O. SACKED IN SEX SCANDAL
It was the usual boiler-plate announcement from the Navy public affairs office - that Capt. Scott Bawden, commodore of the Bangor, Washington-based Submarine Squadron 17 had been relieved of command. The reason - supposedly Rear Adm. Frank Drennan's feeling that Bawden should be fired due to "loss of confidence" in the ex-Marine enlisted man's ability to lead. But that was only part of it.
What the Navy brass don't want you to know, and what MilitaryCorruption.com has found out from our sources at the base is, Bawden is in big trouble over something to do with a female. And not just any woman, but we're told allegedly the captain was "involved with" the wife of one of his enlisted sailors. That is a big "NO-NO" in any branch of the military. And if it wasn't for Bawden's previously outstanding record, the sometimes abrasive commodore would have been put out the door already.
Capt. Brian McIlvaine, Bawden's former deputy, will replace the troubled four-striper. It was McIlvaine who stepped in to take the place of Cmdr. Charles A. Marquez after Bawden relieved that officer of command this past June.
RIDDANCE TO RUMSFELD
Just a few days after George Bush undercut his own party's chances of survival in the 2006 election by declaring he wanted to retain Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, whom he claimed was doing a "fantastic" job, the President bit the bullet and the "megalomaniac" soon will be gone. Not a moment too soon for the troops in Iraq who suffered from Rumsfeld's many mistakes and failed "leadership."
No one since Robert McNamara, who's lasting legacy will be the death and suffering of both Vietnamese and Americans from his hair-brained scheme to spray Dioxin on the jungle to "defoliate" hiding places for the Viet Cong, has there been a worse defense chief. Did anyone stop to think that the deadly poison would also expose our soldiers and Marines to a slow death from Agent Orange and their children to birth defects? But of course, the big chemical companies just love those defense contracts, and they know how and when to "kick in" to the politicians' coffers with campaign contributions.
IS DEAFENING" - WHAT AIR FORCE

The "silence" has indeed been "deafening" ever since Sept. 14, 2006 when Air Force marathon runner and poster girl, Maj. Jill Metzger, returned to Moody AFB, Ga. from her overseas assignment in politically volatile Kyrgyzstan.
She was met at the tarmac by her doting parents - her father is a retired USAF light colonel - but the absence of the base wing commander or any high-level Air Force delegation to greet Metzger was not missed by Moody personnel who e-mailed us (from off-base) with all the details.
More than seven weeks have passed since "Jilly Willy," as Daddy Metzger likes to call his daughter, went into seclusion after asking, in a cryptic statement from a military hospital in Germany, that we respect her right to "privacy." [She has now quietly returned to duty at Moody, but in a "make-work," low-profile, non field-grade officer position.] Since she was a headline story around the world for several days and thousands prayed for her safe return, one might think Jill could spare a kind word for those folks, or at least express gratitude to the Air Force and Kyrgyzstan police.
IN DEATH OF COL SABOW
It's been 15 long years since Col. James Sabow was shotgunned to death in the backyard of his quarters at El Toro Marine Corps Air Station in California, but at last, the remaining pieces of the puzzle are finally falling into place.
MilitaryCorruption.com has learned two men have come forward to say they believe the highly-decorated USMC pilot was killed. One, a former CIA contract pilot, who admits he once ran guns and drugs into the now shutdown installation; the other, a former chief of the Orange County District Attorney's Homicide Squad.
The pilot, William "Tosh" Plumlee, says "Sabow was murdered," while top cop Mike Jacobs calls the military investigation a "whitewash" and flat-out declared "someone killed Sabow and staged the crime to look like a suicide."
HAS NO SHAME - RET. ADMIRAL

Few men, active or retired, are more despised in the military today than Admiral William C. Crowe.
"His name is now a curse word in the Navy," says a lieutenant commander in Pensacola, who asked that his identity be withheld. But L. "Mike" Keating, a highly-respected submariner and career Navy man from Arizona, told us he considers Crowe to be "nothing more than a political whore."
"Ronald Reagan was a great president, in my opinion," the retired vet said, "and he made Crowe chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. That was a big mistake. He didn't know the admiral would back-stab the party for a promise from a politician who said he "loathed the military." [Former President William Clinton, the record will show, rewarded Crowe with the job of Ambassador to Great Britain after the Republican "brass hat" endorsed the Democrat's 1992 election bid.]
RESERVE LT COLONEL AND FBI SPECIAL
Telling the truth and refusing to back down always carries a price. And for former FBI agent and U.S. Army Reserve Lt. Col. Richard Taus, the cost was heavy indeed.
The decorated Vietnam veteran, who survived the Tet Offensive and flew dangerous helicopter missions in support of the Marines at Khe Sanh, now languishes in a prison in upstate New York after he was convicted on trumped-up charges.
If the Feds have their way, he'll never be a free man again. The ex-G-man, who worked on the New York Bureau's organized crime squad, is serving a 32 to 90 year-sentence. Chances are, he'll die in custody unless someone is willing to re-examine the frame-up used against him.

SPECIAL FORCES LT COLONEL
The year was 1966. The place, a U.S. Army Special Forces camp at An Phu, near the Vietnamese-Cambodian border.
CIA agent Walter Mackem had just informed camp commander, then-CPT Dan Marvin, that his mission was to infiltrate forces into Cambodia and kill Prince Norodum Sihanouk. The Viet Cong were using Cambodia as a sanctuary and raiding South Vietnamese outposts along the border. The idea, Marvin was told, was to make it "look like" the VC had disposed of the crown prince, thus destabilizing what had been, ostensibly at least, a neutral country.
"As I turned to exit the command bunker, with Major Le close behind me," Marvin told MilitaryCorruption.com, " I looked Mackem in the eye and told him, 'You can tell your "highest authority" just what I told you. If President Johnson insists the enemy be permitted to retain their sanctuaries inside Cambodia, I refuse to send my people to risk their lives to kill Sihanouk.'
SHUE LIED TO ME," GRIEVING MOM
What manner of evil is this?
The elderly mother of Col. Philip Shue, grieving the loss of her beloved son, asked his wealthy widow a simple request: "Please send Philip's remains back to Ohio for a Christian burial." Tracy Shue promised she would, her mother-in-law said. "But later on, when I asked her why the delay, she coldly and cruelly told me she'd had him cremated. Oh, my God! I felt like I'd been stabbed in the heart," recalled the 91 year-old lady, in an exclusive interview with MilitaryCorruption.com.
That wasn't the only abuse Miriam and Bruce Shue, devoted parents of the late Col. Philip Shue (killed in a mysterious Texas car crash in 2003) reported to us.
FIGHT ALL THE WAY TO THE SUPREME
Chaplain Lt. Gordon Klingenschmitt is not going quietly. He vows a legal battle all the way to the Supreme Court.
The evangelical Episcopal priest and Air Force Academy graduate says his court-martial conviction for wearing his uniform to a news conference outside the White House is the latest attempt by top Chaplains' Corps brass to muzzle him and make the officer "an example" to other dissidents among military clergymen.
"They think this will silence me and intimidate fellow evangelicals like myself, but they are wrong," the soft-spoken chaplain told MilitaryCorruption.com. "I will continue to fight for my right to stay in the Navy and to pray in Jesus' name."
HOW CAN YOU BE SO CRUEL?"
Bruce and Miriam Shue, the 91-year-old parents of Air Force Col. Philip Shue, killed in a mysterious car crash in Texas more than three years ago, have another reason to feel pain in their hearts.
"Our son's widow, Tracy, refuses to send us a videotape of his funeral service at Arlington National Cemetery - a ceremony in which my wife and I took part," a sorrowful Bruce Shue told MilitaryCorruption.com.
Why has the millionairess taken such a mean-spirited position? That's a good question that demands an answer.
