SPECIAL FORCES SERGEANT SURRENDERS
IN GERMANY AFTER TWO DAYS ON THE LAM FROM
COURT MARTIAL CONVICTION ON SEX CHARGES
SFC KELLY A. STEWART GIVES UP PEACEFULLY
TO MILITARY POLICE AT STUTTGART GARRISON
After a little less than two days on the lam, escaped fugutive SFC Kelly Stewart has surrendered to military police at the Stuttgart, Germany U.S. Army garrison.
The Special Forces non-com had telephoned authorities that he was "coming in," most likely to avoid any possibility of gun-play or violence if he had just shown up at the main gate.
Earlier this week, the 36 year-old career soldier had been sentenced to eight years in prison, a dishonorable discharge and reduction in rank from sergeant first class E-7 to Private E-1.

MANHUNT FOR SPECIAL FORCES NCO CONTINUES
The rented black Audi, used by SFC Kelly Smith to make his escape from a U.S. military installation in Germany, was found today parked near the base, but there was no sign of the fugitive soldier anywhere.
The Green Beret, "well-trained" in the skills of "escape, evasion and survival" in the wild, has not been seen since he slipped away Thursday from his fellow NCO escort at the on-base Kissall Inn in Vilseck.
Stewart is said to be "desperate" after receiving an eight-year prison sentence and dishonorable discharge following his court-martial conviction for "kidnap" and "sexual assault" of a German woman. Smith protested his innocence throughout the trial and maintained the female was a "willing sex-partner."

Just hours after he had been court-martialed and sentenced to a long stretch in prison, Special Forces SFC Kelly Stewart slipped away from his escort at a U.S.Army base in Vilseck, Germany and is on the loose.
A manhunt has been launched for the Green Beret who is described as "desperate" and "perhaps suicidal."
The 36 year-old Iraq war veteran was convicted August 20 of "assault" and "kidnapping" of a German woman. Stewart claimed the sex was consensual and the prosecution's case entirely based upon her claims. There were no witnesses.
AIR FORCE CAPTAIN GOES AWOL - GETS

WIFE THREATENED TO LEAVE HIM IF HE WENT

MEYER ADMITS HE LIED TO COMMAND ABOUT
WHY HE MISSED FLIGHT - WOULD AN NCO OR
ENLISTED PERSON HAVE GOT OFF SO EASY?
Capt. Kevin Meyer called it "the biggest single mistake of my life," and he is right. He's also fortunate he's an officer, because an enlisted person or NCO deliberately missing a deployment flight to Iraq, and then lying about why to the base command, would have been severely punished and kicked out of the Air Force.
In the case of this officer, assigned to the Global Positioning Systems Wing at El Segundo (Los Angeles Air Force Base), he got a virtual "slap-on-the-wrist." He does 90 days in jail and gets fined $1000 a month for three months. That's it. Then he can return to active duty. Nice deal if you can get it. We doubt your average staff sergeant would be so lucky.

It all seemed so simple at first. Army Capt. David Gilliam knew, from his job as disbursing officer at the 125th Finance Bn. at Kandahar Air Base, Afghanistan, there are frequent currency value fluctuations between U.S. dollars and Afghan money.
All he had to do was manipulate the figures on his books to make the "losses" look normal, while he skimmed off the difference. And between April 2004 and the following year, Gilliam was able to grab up $400,000 in Uncle Sam's greenbacks. Cold, hard cash.
To get it out of the country, the captain smuggled it to Hawaii - he was based at Schofield Barracks - in his duffel bag. No one was the wiser. Gilliam cooked the figures and it seemed like the perfect crime.

The silence has been deafening. No action has taken place, save the erection of a large "stone-wall" around the truth, since PFC Lavena Johnson, an African-American soldier from Missouri, was raped and killed in Iraq.
Her horrible death - the autopsy photos would make the most hardened warrior weep - proves it was a despicable lie put out by the Army, that this cheerful, upbeat, beloved daughter from a close-knit religious family in America's mid-west somehow inflicted these terrible injuries on herself.
They would have you believe that this petite female, standing five feet high and weighing less than 100 pounds, could raise an M-16 to her head - the weapon is long enough to reach her shoulder - and, using her left hand (she is right-handed) pull the trigger.

It's the proverbial "revolving door." Military officers retire and then show up for work the next day as government contractors. And the taxpayer is the loser in the deal, when the ex-field grades turn out to be crooks and liars.
Two retired Air Force lieutenant colonels have been caught up in the latest military scandal to hit the Florida Panhandle. Former 0-5 Richard Schaller admitted he helped another light colonel - Mike O'Hair - who worked at the Air Force Research Laboratory at Eglin AFB - "steer contracts" to a company owned by Schaller, court papers show.
The sweetheart deal was disclosed after O'Hair flew on a private plane, provided by his pal Schaller, to a Pennsylvania-based defense contractor run by big-time political contributor Richard Ianieri.

Hurlburt Field in Florida has been hard-hit by a Swine Flu outbreak that has infected up to 100 airmen on the key Air Force "Special Operations" installation at Fort Walton Beach, Florida.
"Civilian workers fear the bug could spread to them," said a deep-cover source who works in the Education Building on Lukasik Avenue. Some of the people there, we are told, worry about catching the influenza and bringing it home to children and other family members.
MilitaryCorruption.com has learned that top brass and the public affairs office hoped the media wouldn't get wind of the sizeable number of sick personnel, but a "tipster" contacted the Northwest Florida DAILY NEWS and they immediately inquired as to the extent of the problem.

Got to get out the rubber gloves again to type on our keyboard. Yet another pervert Navy chief petty officer, this one a "master chief E-9" and "chief of the boat" on the sub USS Louisiana, has been busted on sex charges, convicted and sent to prison.
Daniel C. Jones got eleven years incarceration for molesting an 11 year-old girl. What the judge in Kitsap County Superior Court should have done, was lock him up and throw away the key.
A "sicko" like this, who undoubtedly psychologically traumatized this little girl as well as physically harmed her, should get life in prison. If he gets out at some future date, the odds are good his depraved behavior will occur again.

At the time, it made sense. Concocting an "official" cover story to mask the unpleasant details of the death of beloved bandleader, Maj. Glenn Miller. The truth would have been extremely hard for World War II era Americans to accept and comprehend and might've played into German "propaganda" and disinformation at the time, i.e. that Miller died in the arms of a Paris prostitute.
He did not. Miller was a patriot and on a mission for Gen. Eisenhower that might have helped bring a quicker end to World War II. An elderly but alert retired officer on Gen. Omar Bradley's staff, Army Lt. Col. Hunton Downs, has spoken to MilitaryCorruption.com about the facts of the case from his home in Asheville, N.C.
This respected officer has spent 60 of his 90-plus years of life following the trail; gaining access to OSS/CIA files on Miller; U.S. and German documents long hidden away on the case; relentlessly chasing down leads; and now, the military investigator believes he has "solved the final mystery" of what really happened to Glenn Miller.

HER MOUTH SHUT - WHERE IS THE "JUSTICE?"
This is a tale of two Navy lieutenant commanders. Both are female, and each started out as an enlisted sailor. Both are supply officers and are in their late 30's. That is where the similarities end.
One is African-American, the other, Caucasian. One is a certified "whistle-blower," sent to the brig after being convicted of "adultery." The other is a security risk who taught "ethics" at the Naval Academy while turning "tricks" at night with high-ranking military officers and government officials.
Syneeda Penland (see related stories box below) is being kicked out of the Navy July 31, just eight months short of retirement. This, despite her treatment with chemotherapy drugs at the San Diego Naval Hospital.

We haven't had so much fun since we caught former Pentagon PAO, Lt. Cdr. Daniel Hetlage, sending us unsigned, profanity-laced e-mails questioning our "patriotism" after we blasted his megalomaniacal boss, then-Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld.
Long-time readers of MilitaryCorruption.com will recall we traced the sycophantic press officer through his IP number and received a written apology from his colonel boss after we demanded one on our desk "in 72 hours." We are the only news organization during the Bush years to ever get such an acknowledgement that one of their Pentagon flacks had stepped way over the line.
Well, now we have the pleasure of sitting back and watching a battle between a veteran PAO, Navy CDR Jeff Gordon, and the heavy-set, leftist reporter for the Miami Herald, Carol Rosenberg. We don't have a "dog" or even a "pig" in this fight, so it'll be amusing to see how the spat shakes out.

This is a terrible tragedy. And it shows just how much we need to abolish the onerous and unfair Feres Doctrine - where the Govt. is not liable (under Federal Tort Claims Act) for injuries members of the military incur on active duty.
Airman 1st Class Colton Read went to the David Grant Medical Center at Travis AFB in California for a routine, low-risk gall bladder operation. It should have been over in no time, with few if any complications to the patient. Instead, the 20 year-old former high school football player from Texas, nearly died on the operating table. A stupid mistake by an Air Force surgeon resulted in the young man losing both legs.
The horror began when the unidentified doctor accidentally snipped Read's aorta during the medical procedure, cutting off a normal flow of blood to the patient's lower extremities.

With all the subtlety of a pack of wild dogs chasing a wounded deer across an open field, the Navy brass are out to destroy the life and career of a minority female officer who blew the whistle on contractor fraud.
Lt. Cdr. Syneeda Penland has been informed the Navy intends to kick her out of the military as of July 31, just eight months short of the former enlisted woman qualifying for an active-duty retirement pension.
The once-athletic officer, who prided herself in maxing-out her PT scores, is suffering from chest pains and a blood disorder which has caused her to be treated by a doctor with chemotherapy drugs. Her elderly father, back home in Georgia, is battling pancreatic cancer. Penland feels the enormous stress she's been subjected to is definitely undermining her health.

A Hurlburt Field airman has been arrested in the brutal killing of a wealthy couple who took in and raised developmentally disadvantaged kids in Beulah, Florida.
Staff Sgt. Donnie Ray Stallworth is one of seven men in custody after the chilling "home invasion" robbery earlier this month of Byrd and Melanie Billings in neighboring Escambia County.
Investigators are not releasing much information as to motive, except that robbery of a home safe was one of the alleged killers' goals. Our sources in Fort Walton Beach tell us that there could be a drug angle to the grisly killings as well.

This is the toughest story we've had to write on the United States Air Force in the nine years that MilitaryCorruption.com has been online.
But our views and discouraging findings don't detract for a moment from the many accomplishments and sacrifices made by the vast majority of good men and women out there who continue to wear "Air Force Blue" with honor and integrity.
Our problem is with poor leadership and generals who "look the other way." Take, for example, the shameful Jill Metzger "cover-up." Morale is hurt by the widespread perception within the ranks that there are two standards of justice: One for the powerful and connected, the other for everyone else.

We don't like writing these kind of stories any more than members of the fleet enjoy reading them. But there seems to be an epidemic of Naval officers and enlisted members ogling child porn.
Fast on the heels of our latest story about former Senior Chief Billy Wayne Welsh being busted on similar charges, Lt. Cdr. John J. Hall is the latest pervert to throw away his freedom and military pension because of a twisted compulsion to view trash like little kids being raped by so-called "adults."
The 39 year-old career officer pled guilty in Norfolk (Va.) Federal Court and faces a maximum penalty of up to ten years in prison for his crime.

Just four more years, and Billy Wayne Welsh could have retired from the Navy on 75% of base pay. Maybe he could have even made master chief? Who knows?
But now that's just a prison cell nightmare and "might have been" regret for the 44 year-old senior chief who joined up after his 18th birthday.
All the good he may have done during his long military career is ruined by the sick compulsion that drove the Arlington, Wash. man to collect more than 600 child porn videos and 16,000 images on his laptop computer.

Gotta take care of the "suck-ups," even obvious "political" officers and would-be members of the "thought police," like this stupid and sycophantic colonel.
It seems not everyone at the Dayton, Ohio military installation is a fan of non-veteran Obama, who won election as President and is now commander-in-chief, despite some very unsavory associates, like his longtime "spiritual mentor," the "Rev." Jeremiah GOD-DAMN AMERICA Wright.

Now he is awaiting the start of his trial on August 3 after spending more than four years in the Gulf County Jail. Proceedings will be held in Panama City because of all the negative publicity the case has attracted since the April 12, 2005 attack on Judge Fred Witton's step-daughter.
Investigators say Caroline Lister was in the shower at home when her estranged boyfriend burst through the door and assaulted her with a collapsible baton.

It took more than a decade, but the cold hand of fate reached out and killed a former Army captain said to be the "prime suspect" in the axe-murders of three fellow Army officers in a villa in Passau, Germany.
James Leech, 46, got away with the grisly killings - the victims were Maj. Everett S. Cofran, Capt. Adrian L. Wessler and 1st Lt. Stanley M. Rosewater - when the CID bungled the case.
Three times the investigation was re-opened, but lucky Leech got off despite a "mountain of circumstantial evidence" that he had the motive and means to murder the Army officers. Cofran was said to have fired Leech's German girl friend from an Army job and an enraged Leech reportedly swore revenge.

Just before he was shot to death "execution-style" on a Norfolk, Va. side street, Navy Lt. Michael Cox, sensing the extreme danger, shoved his fiancee, daughter, and her daughter "out of the way" before his killer opened fire.
The cold-blooded murder, which took place on the morning of April 28, 2008, still baffles police. No arrests have been made.
"ADMIRAL BOORDA" READER ALERT
In the nine years MilitaryCorruption.com has been online, we have never felt we had enough information to go ahead and do an article on the strange "suicide" of former Chief of Naval Operations, Adm. Mike Boorda.
That situation has now changed.
We urge our readers, if they have any information at all about this so-called "suicide," to contact us at once at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can remain anonymous.
Be watching this space in the days and weeks ahead for our take on what REALLY happened. We do know one thing. If you think this well-respected, up-from-the-ranks sailor to CNO, shot himself to death over a couple of ribbon attachments, we have some swamp land in Florida to sell you. Real cheap.
Mike Boorda loved his disabled son and other family members too much to ever hurt them in that way.
TOP NAVY CHAPLAIN GETS THE BOOT - CLAIM
REAR-ADMIRAL ALAN BAKER "REPRISED AGAINST"

DEPUTY CHIEF OF CHAPLAINS "USED POSITION

COULD BE PROMOTED - BAKER TO BE RETIRED
AS A ONE-STAR AFTER 30 YEARS IN SERVICE
The Navy's deputy chief of chaplains has been fired and will be forced out of the service after 30 years in uniform.
MilitaryCorruption.com has learned the reason Rear Admiral Alan Baker is being shown the door is because a DOD IG investigation confirmed he "reprised against" his former executive assistant, at the time, a Navy commander, (whose name has not been released), during a four-striper promotion board last year.
While the Navy flaks aren't about to reveal the race of the complainant, we will. The aggrieved Navy commander, who felt he had been discriminated against by his non-minority boss, is an African-American.
