It was unmitigated greed that brought down a U.S. Army officer entrusted with large amounts of money earmarked for humanitarian and re-building projects in war-torn Iraq.
Now CPT Michael Dung (Nguyen) is going away to prison for a long time. He could get up to 40 years in the slammer after pleading guilty in federal court in Portland, Ore. to charges of theft and money laundering.
The 28 year-old was stationed at Muqdadiyahy, Iraq between April 2007 and February of this year. The civil affairs officer's job was to spread about Uncle Sam's greenbacks in such a way that Iraqi civilians would receive humanitarian and re-building assistance.

You almost needed a score card to see who was sleeping with whom. An atmosphere of open sex and fraternization existed on the ship and MilitaryCorruption.com has learned the DE's former XO, (name deleted for obvious reasons), may have "blown the whistle" to authorities.
That officer has been reassigned pronto to another destroyer, also in an executive officer position.

The top brass are trying to keep a lid on what really happened in the case of one of the Air Force's highest ranking and most powerful chief master sergeants who was recently fired as command chief at the huge USAF Material Command at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio.
Hard-charger William C. Gurney is the top-ranking enlisted man there whose career suddenly hit a serious road bump. The native of New York state joined the Air Force in 1983 and rapidly rose through the enlisted ranks.
AFMC's commander, Gen. Donald J. Hoffman, "pulled the plug" on Gurney, but is using the usual boiler-plate excuse, "lost confidence" in Gurney's ability to perform his duty, as reason for taking down a very senior Air Force non-com.

Yes, it's YOU that have made MilitaryCorruption.com a force to be reckoned with and a beacon of light to those helpless and hopeless souls who've been beaten down under the heel of injustice in today's military.
Without your "eyes and ears" and steadfast support, we wouldn't be closing in on a full decade - ten years of service - to the men and women of our armed forces who have fallen victim to cover-ups, frame-ups, favoritism, sweetheart deals, out-and-out corruption,. etc.
Our motto here has always been: FIGHTING FOR THE TRUTH - EXPOSING THE CORRUPT, and we often have done just that. The Pentagon reads us every day, including weekends, because they can't afford not to. When it comes to "must read" military web sites, we are rated number one.

He beat the odds and walked out of the courtroom a free man.
Bucking a court-martial conviction rate of nearly 98%, Capt. Michael Fontana had seemed a sure bet for a lifetime prison cell at Leavenworth. But in a surprise that shocked one and all, the 36 year-old male nurse was acquitted after a week-long court martial at Lackland AFB in San Antonio, Texas.
Fontana had been hit with three counts of hastening the deaths of patients under his care at Wilford Hall Medical Center. Prosecutors claimed the captain pumped the patients full of pain-killer drugs to "speed up" their demise.

It was another "he said - she said" case, with no witnesses and the "victim" admitting she was so drunk she didn't remember much of anything. But what she did recall, she told cops, was finding a man in bed with her in her house after she had passed out from heavy drinking the night before. She yelled "RAPE!"
There were no signs of forceful entry or any kind of struggle, and Mark Samoline told investigators the sex had been entirely "consensual." His accuser, a 21 year-old Indiana University coed, couldn't explain just how the Marine Corps Reserve colonel got into her home Oct. 18 after they met during "Homecoming Week" at the Bloomington, Ind. university.
Samoline, 50, said he had been in the Hoosier State to visit his daughter, who is a student at the famed school. The senior field grade maintained his young woman accuser invited him to come back with her, but obviously changed her mind when she woke up the next day.

We've seen and been sickened by "politically-correct" generals like the brain-dead George Casey Jr. for years. Sycophantic flunkies like him are a dime a dozen. And that is why his "commander-in-chief," Barack Hussein Obama, should cut him loose. Now. Gen. Casey is an embarrassment to the Army and the nation.
Rarely has such stupidity been put on display over network television. There was Gen. Casey on "Meet the Press" genuflecting in the direction of the White House while putting both feet squarely into his mouth.
He knew his talking points were to deny or pooh-pooh any "terrorist" connections crazed Muslim gunman, MAJ Nidal Malik Hasan may have, but it's when Casey started blathering about "diversity" that he dug himself a big hole he cannot crawl out of.

It's the way "business" has been conducted for years in the Far East. A bribe here and a bribe there, and another "deal" has been made. Only this time, Korean businessman Jeong Gi-Hwan got caught. Now he's been hit with a five year prison term and $50,000 fine.
The greedy Jeong wanted to land a more than $200 million dollar contract with AAFES for supplying Internet and telephone service to American GI's stationed in South Korea.
He'd earlier successfully bribed the Osan Air Force Base general manager, H. Lee Holloway, so he thought it would be a snap with AAFES big shot Clifton Choy. Court papers show that Jeong not only slipped Choy piles of greenbacks, but supplied prostitutes as well, to his partner in crime.
Former NASA Astronaut Lisa Nowak, who allegedly wore diapers during her late night ride from Texas to Florida to confront a female love rival, has received no jail time and one year's probation from a Florida judge.
The Naval Academy graduate was told by Judge Marc Lubet in Orlando, Fla. to write a "sincere" letter of apology to Air Force Capt. Claire Shipman, the woman Nowak fought for the affections of dirtbag ex-lover Bill Oefelein.
As part of a plea-agreement, Nowak pleaded guilty to felony burglary of a car and misdemeanor battery.

KILLEEN, TEX. -- Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, the crazed killer who slaughtered 13 soldiers in a frenzied fit of so-called religious fervor, is off a ventilator in a San Antonio hospital and has "lawyered up," as the saying goes. Pretty soon the mainstream media will be full of "victim" stories so we can "feel sorry" for this worthless murderer. Already Gen. George Casey has cried crocodile tears over the possibility that the Army's precious "diversity" could be impaired by this cold-blooded act of terrorism.
MilitaryCorruption.com has learned that the Fort Hood "headshrinker" has been an "in-your-face" extremist for a long time. Yet no one dared to confront him or stop his tirades. Such is the state of "political-correctness" in the U.S. military today. If anyone were to file an official complaint, it would be their career ended, not that of this sub-par officer, who never should have been promoted to major in the first place.
Informed sources at Walter Reed Medical Center tell us that Hasan has been quoted as saying non-believers in Islam are "infidels" and should be be-headed. Gee, do ya think maybe someone with some rank and authority should have done something back then about this disaster waiting to happen?

KILLEEN, TEX. -- The Army chief-of-staff, politically-correct Gen. George Casey, and his PAO people at the Pentagon, may be more concerned about Muslim soldier "sensibilities" being offended in the wake of MAJ Nidal Malik Hasan's murderous rampage at Ft. Hood, Texas where he killed 13 GI's in cold blood and wounded twice as many, than what he did on November 5th, but we here at MilitaryCorruption.com are not!
Hasan is a crazed killer who planned his cowardly attack, and, after being court-martialed and convicted, should be taken out and executed by a firing squad made up of parents of the soldiers Hasan shot in the back as he screamed "Allahu Akhbar (God is good)!".
Are we going to have to grovel before the Arab world and not give this lowlife the death penalty he deserves? There are plenty of witnesses to the major's pre-meditated attack. He didn't just suddenly "snap." He had time to gather up plenty of ammunition and two automatic pistols as he set about his evil work. The killer deserves to die. Period.

Some doctors are "touchy-feely," but this is ridiculous. If accusers are telling the truth, Navy doctor, LT CMDR Anthony Velasquez fondled and violated many of them during what was supposed to be routine medical examinations.
One female, testifying at the officer's Article 32 hearing at Yokosuka Naval Station in Japan, claimed she went to the doc for a sore back and instead got a gynecological test.
The accused physician, facing "wrongful sexual contact" charges, allegedly abused 15 female patients - from PVT to LTC - that he "treated" at Camp Arifjan in Kuwait and also in Japan. The accusations include "unwanted touching" plus "inappropriate comments." The incidents supposedly took place between December 2008 and June of this year.

For the second time in a month, top Air Force brass have "pulled the trigger" on a senior officer.
Col. Joel Westra, former commander of the 5th Bomb Wing at Minot AFB in No. Dakota, is the latest bird colonel to get the axe. He may not be the last.
Just a couple weeks earlier, Col. Christopher Ayers, also at Minot, was fired as commander of the 91st Missile Wing. The explanation for his relief of command was Air Force leadership had "lost confidence in his ability to lead."

A lot has changed since West Point heroes Douglas MacArthur, George Patton and Omar Bradley walked the hallowed halls of the United States Military Academy.
The latest blot on West Point's once-sterling reputation has come with a guilty plea from Bobbie C. Ryan, trusted employee in the Dean's office, who admits she embezzled almost $3 million for her own personal use.
The 51 year-old Highland Falls, New York woman admitted she diverted payments from West Point to a dummy corporation she set up - CWG Enterprises of New Windsor, N.Y. - for "training" that never took place.

It's been said, "speak no ill of the dead." But if we were to do that, we'd betray the memory of many good men and women who gave their all and maintained their honor and integrity in service to the New Jersey National Guard.
We cannot remain silent as to the terrible eight years (1982 - 1990) that a fat egomaniac - Gen. Francis R. Gerard - ruled and ruined the state Guard.
He was morbidly obese, with a pumpkin-like head planted on a stubby little torso. Chomping on an unlit cigar, like the late Gen. Curtis LeMay, and sometimes adorned in a white dress uniform, as if he was a South American "banana-republic" dictator, Gerard's cruelty and brass-knuckle politics damaged or destroyed the career of many men far better than he.

OSI (Office of Special Investigations) agents and local police have taken Zachory Mullins into custody on charges he committed "deviant" sex acts on children in Alabama. The 22 year-old missile officer from the 392nd Training Squadron was hit with two felony counts of "rape" and "sodomy" against girls as young as 12 years old.
Investigators said the offenses occurred in 2006, before Mullins entered the Air Force.

We remember what we learned as a public affairs officer (and instructor) years ago. If you want to "keep a lid" on BAD news, make sure a bare-bones report is released late on a Friday afternoon and "stonewall" the media all the way.
Just like a tree at midnight, falling in the forest where no one can hear it tumble, the Pentagon is desperate to do all it can to keep quiet what could be one of the ugliest scandals in U.S. Army history.
And so far, the Washington POST and Associated Press, who have long-time representatives in the Pentagon press room, perhaps grown a bit "too cozy" with those they are supposed to cover, have been strangely silent about this case.

It doesn't get much worse than this. Just when you think it can't, something like this happens. We warn you, dear reader, don't attempt to finish this story if you are sitting down to dinner. We had all we could do to keep from getting physically ill writing it. You have been warned.
What kind of sick person would molest their own son, much less a helpless six-month old baby boy?Yes, we know. The critics and carpers out there will whine: "There's that salacious scandal site, MilitaryCorruption.com, going over the edge again - trying to inflame the public."
Well, the authorities are not revealing who the victim of Woolverton's disgusting acts is, at least not yet, but we have learned from a reliable source, close to the investigation, that a wristwatch worn by the attacker (clearly seen in the videotape) and a baby's bib that was discovered by cops in a Woolverton family vehicle in Arlington, Va., matches the major's timepiece, while the clothing item has been identified as belonging to the little baby.

PLAYED BALL WITH "MONEY-MAN" RICHARD
IANIERI, PAL OF REP. JOHN MURTHA
Both men began their military careers with honor and promise as graduates of the U.S. Air Force Academy. This week, all that came to an ignominious end, as they faced shame and dishonor as convicted criminals in a contractor fraud case involving the military research lab at Eglin AFB Florida.
A federal judge sentenced retired Lt. Col. Richard Schaller to 18 months in prison and five years probation. His fellow conspirator, retired Lt. Col. Mike O'Hair, got only six months in the slammer and three years probation.
The scheme that brought them down was centered around a big bucks contract with links to a deep-pockets Democrat contributor to fat-cat congressman John Murtha (D-Pa.). While Murtha was not directly connected to this particular case, one of his principal fund raisers, a shady politician named Richard Ianieri, was cozy with both Schaller and O'Hair.

A top colonel and the commander of the 11th Wing at Bolling AFB has been fired, and his fall from grace is clouded in mystery.
All the Air Force will disclose at press time is that Col. Jon Roop has been "relieved of command" because his boss, Gen. Ralph Joyce, commander of the USAF's Washington District, "lost confidence in (Roop's) ability to lead."
That's basic boilerplate used to cover a myriad of sins, but we hear that a possible "sexual indiscretion" may be what's behind the abrupt sacking of such a high-profile officer.

In the nearly 10 years this web site has been online, we have often caught hell from some of our readers (we get more than two million hits a month), for supporting women fighting for justice and equality in the military.
Any honest person has to admit females have been held back from deserved promotions and positions of authority over the years due to male chauvinism and the "Good Ole Boy" network. On the other side of the coin, however, "political correctness" has, in recent times, also caused discrimination against males as well. Both extremes are wrong.
But when we see a pampered, spoiled woman who made full colonel in record time, "play the race card" and whine about "discrimination," when in reality she's had an easy run for more than 30 years, we get disgusted.

Michael Everage was a SEALS logistics officer with Special Warfare Group 2. The rugged "macho man" flipped out when wife Robyn threatened to report him as a homosexual to the NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service).
Police say the 41 year-old former Navy lieutenant was willing to give his wife a divorce, but getting hit with the "gay" charge would likely cost him his military career and pension. So, the Norfolk, Va. man devised a scheme to make it look like his wife of five years had been killed in a road accident.
First, court papers showed. he bashed her head in with a "side-view" truck mirror, loaded her into her SUV, then drove to a quiet section of Shore Road in Virginia Beach.

She did this, despite her getting a lucrative (and we think totally undeserved) 100% "disability" pension for her self-proclaimed heroics overseas. Or was the money for something else?
The retired colonel's daughter, well plugged in to the Air Force power structure - bully-boy Gen. Gary North did back-flips to help her, and, with a fourth star on his hulking shoulders, can now intimidate anyone into silence who asks if millions of dollars in taxpayer money was wasted on a lie - that Metzger was never "kidnapped" in Kyrgyzstan three years ago, but made a false official statement to cover-up other serious misconduct.

Gunner's Mate 1st Class Wilfred Boulton has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges he stole and trafficked in more than 50 of the mechanisms, valued at $800 each.
If convicted, the 29 year-old gunner's mate could find himself in Leavenworth for the next ten years. That's a "slap-on-the-wrist," in our opinion. If guilty, he deserves twice that time in the slammer.

Add a new name to the list, (see "related stories box" below), 40 year-old CPO David Holmes. He's been sentenced to 16 years in prison for child rape. The career sailor and pervert admitted he'd had sex with a teenage boy and girl, both at the same time. His wife, Brenda, is alleged to have videotaped the disgusting scene.
According to court papers, Holmes also had relations with his wife and made a teenage girl tape that encounter.

IN TROUBLE FOR "SEX CRIMES" - BARRY NIXON
SENTENCED TO 18 YEARS IN PRISON - RAPED
UNDERAGE GIRL - MICHAEL DODSON ARRESTED ON
CHILD PORN CHARGES - WHAT HAS BECOME OF
QUALITY OF AFA STAFF AND FACULTY?
These are bad times at the trouble-plagued Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs.
The once-prestigious installation has been rocked again by sex charges. This time, the perps aren't cadets sexually harassing female colleagues at the Colorado institution of higher learning.
Not one, but two Air Force majors have brought new disgrace and shame to the AFA. Both men allegedly committed acts so vile one has to wonder if the Academy should institute a stringent psychological screening of all staff and faculty before they assume duties there.

WIMUNC - PROSECUTORS IN NORTH CAROLINA
SAY THEY WILL SEEK THE "DEATH PENALTY"
She was a beautiful blonde with smiling eyes and a caring heart just made for a nurse. 2LT Holley Wimunc loved people and was very popular with her co-workers at Womack Army Hospital at Fort Bragg, N.C. When she didn't show up for work on July 10, 2008, her friends and fellow soldiers suspected something was terribly wrong. It was.
Three days later, the 23 year-old woman's mutilated body, charred from being set on fire, a hatchet in her back, both legs cut off at the thigh, was found buried in a shallow grave a few miles from Camp Lejeune, where her dirt bag, estranged husband, USMC Cpl. John Wimunc, was stationed.

© 2009 MilitaryCorruption.com
It's been a long, frustrating six years since highly-respected Air Force Col. Philip Shue was killed in a bizarre car crash on a busy Texas highway.
Both his former wife and hard-charging widow made millions in insurance money in the wake of the medical officer's mysterious demise.
Now, MilitaryCorruption.com has learned a bombshell book is being written by a top investigator and his newspaper reporter wife that we're told will "tear the lid off" the truth as to what really took place in that case on April 16, 2003.

OFFUT AFB NCO SAID TO HAVE COMMITED
SIMILAR ATTACKS WHILE STATIONED AT
WHITEMAN AFB IN COLORADO - CAREER
NON-COM COMPUTER SYSTEMS MANAGER
AT 55TH OPERATIONAL AND SPT SQUADRON
An Offut AFB master sergeant has been hammered with a lengthy prison sentence for sexual assault on several young teen-age girls, one of them, the former "babysitter" for his three kids. He'll be behind bars for from 42-to-90 years after being convicted of two first-degree sexual assaults on young teenage girls.
Richard Laramee, a computer systems manager with the 55th Operational and Support Squadron, had pled "no contest" to the very serious charges. The agreement worked out with prosecutors spared the sergeant's victims from having to testify in court.
Even with the plea deal, however, the 37 year-old Air Force veteran still received severe punishment for his admitted criminal acts. It will be a long time before Laramee is once again a free man. He could possibly die behind prison walls, even if he lives another 50 years. He won't be eligible for parole until he's past 80 years old.

FOR HIS TARGET RIFLE AND $50 IN CASH
All eyes in the courtroom at Wayne, West Va., were on the hulking figure with close-cropped hair, as the worthless punk was sentenced to 90 years in prison for the robbery and cold-blooded killing of a pastor at a rural rifle range.
"I killed me a (expletive-deleted) preacherman," SPC Daniel Smith, an AWOL soldier from Fort Drum, N.Y., bragged after cops apprehended him and a fellow GI in the brutal slaying of Rev. Mark McCalla, pastor of Highlawn Presbyterian Church in Huntington. "Felt good - like I'd spit in God's face," the creep reportedly boasted to police during interrogation.
Smith and PFC Stephen Wilson of Cincinnati, Ohio, had been on the loose from their Army base near the Canadian border with the United States since May of 2008.

What kind of low-life not only murders his girlfriend, but their baby she had carried inside her for more than seven months?
We're not talking about California creep Charles Manson. You may recall his gang of "zombies" butchered beautiful and nine-months pregnant actress Sharon Tate. That horrific crime was fueled by drugs and evil insanity. "Helter-Skelter" Remember?
SGT Edgar Patino doesn't have such an "excuse." Charged in a first-degree murder indictment by a Cumberland County grand jury sitting in Fayetteville, N.C., Patino pretended to be the "Zodiac" (more on that later in the story), but this punk wasn't the infamous serial killer. It was a clumsy ruse. Patino was well aware of the terrible crime he planned and committed.

ANGUISHED FATHER PLEADS FOR "THE TRUTH"
Sometimes we'd like to look up the recruiters that send folks off to war who are unfit for military service, much less combat, and kick their ass. Sign-up quotas are always tough to meet, but some things should be seen and problems avoided when they come walking through the door.
Whoever enlisted Keifer Wilhelm in the Army has some soul-searching to do in the wake of his death August 4 near Basra, Iraq. The "official" story is, the GI climbed into a portable toilet, locked the door, and shot himself in the head. He was said to be upset at brutal hazing he supposedly got from some fellow soldiers.
CROOKED CHOPPER PILOT IN KOREA
CONVICTED OF RIPPING OFF FELLOW
OFFICERS IN PHONY LAND INVESTMENT
DEAL - CW2 ANIBAL CANDELARIO OPTS
FOR JUDGE INSTEAD OF COURT-MARTIAL
BY PANEL OF HIS PEERS - GETS NINE
MONTHS IN SLAMMER AND KICKED OUT
OF ARMY - "GOOD RIDDANCE!"
It's no mystery why a crooked chopper pilot in Korea opted for a judge to decide his fate instead of a court-martial panel of his peers. He knew that he'd pulled one of the dirtiest deals a soldier can do to a fellow trooper in uniform. Cheat them with lies and fraud.
And that's just what CW2 Anibal Candelario pulled on a captain and three other warrant officers.
The deceitful flyer dummied up phony documents to make it look like he was "in business" with mega-money outfits like Daewoo International and Wells Fargo Bank Services. Candelario even forged signatures on official letters to convince his "marks" that the big bucks scam he was enticing them to enter into, was on the "up-and-up." It wasn't.
ELLSWORTH AFB NCO GETS 20 YEARS PRISON
TIME FOR CHILD PORN POSSESSION - STAFF SGT
TIM TAYLOR TURNED IN TO AUTHORITIES BY WIFE
WHY IS PERVERT GETTING "MEDICAL" AND NOT
"DISHONORABLE" DISCHARGE FROM AIR FORCE?
It was Staff Sgt. Tim Taylor's wife who turned him in to the authorities. While her hubby protested he "inadvertently" possessed child sex images from downloading regular porn on his computer, she said her pervert husband knew full well what he was doing all along.
Now the former Air Force NCO will have 20 years in prison to think about what he did. And when he gets out, or should we say, if he "survives" his stint at the Leavenworth DB, Taylor will have to register as a sex offender and not work any job better than flipping hamburgers for minimum wage.
The 31 year-old career Airman had faced up to 30 years of incarceration and a $60,000 fine when convicted.
