MAJOR AT IWAKUNI MCAS GETS
Remember the scene from that famous movie FROM HERE TO ETERNITY where First Sgt. Warden, played magnificently by the late, great Burt Lancaster, slips over to his captain's house while the officer is away and makes out with his commander's wife? The cool-as-a-cucumber spouse, portrayed by Deborah Kerr, reminds the "top kick" that a rock pile at Leavenworth awaits him if they are caught.
Well, that was then, and now is today. A similar case at Iwakuni MCAS has resulted in the top enlisted man on that Marine installation getting a "slap-on-the-wrist" after it was revealed he'd had a lengthy affair with his major's wife while the field-grade officer was off fighting in Iraq.
The major's cheap, slut of a wife, who (we are told) seduced the sergeant major in the first place, showed her capacity for deceit when she got her nose out of joint and telephoned Tarazon's wife to tell her of the ongoing "romance." We hear she was all set to rat out her lover to the Command when the E-9 decided to come forward and admit the "terrible lapse in judgment."
Too many people knew about what was going on for anything else but a court-martial. But the 27-year veteran of the Corps, who had a previously clean record, got a great deal.
Tarazon had been charged with that old stand-by "sodomy" as well as absent without leave, but those raps were dropped and the sergeant major was convicted on the adultery charge alone.
He had faced a maximum sentence of a BCD, one year in prison and bust all the way down to E-1, plus fines and loss of pension and benefits.
A lower-ranking Marine, say between lance corporal and "gunny" might not have been so fortunate. He (or she?) would have lost their stripes and gone to that prison in Kansas. [Old-time Marines will remember what a hellhole Portsmouth, N.H. could be, especially in the middle of winter.] But Sgt. Maj. Tarazon doesn't have to worry about a long jail term.
The court took it easy on him despite the incredibly disloyal offense. They gave him just 30 days in the brig and offered the sergeant major the chance to hang on to E-8 rank if he accepted retirement right away. We don't know if Tarazon has put in his papers yet or not, but we guess that's the way he'll go.
Another example of "different spanks for different ranks."
IWAKUNI MCAS WELL-KNOWN FOR SEXUAL HI-JINKS - LIGHT "PUNISHMENT"
While we're on the subject of sex at Iwakuni, who can forget the series of stories we did a couple years ago when a good-for-nothing Navy female doctor (with five young children) dumped her husband and kids for a hulking bull dyke Marine MP who played on the softball team - a notorious meeting place for man-haters and Rosie O'Donnel lookalikes.
We have no gripe with lesbians in the military as long as they don't get too obnoxious and keep out of trouble. But in this case, the doctor's hubby, a former Marine NCO, had gone to the Command and complained about his wife's sexual activities. The woman was so brazen, she drove over to the corporal's quarters, climbed in the window and spent many a night in the sack with her hulking galpal while her small children cried at home.
In one of our reports, we published the e-mail "love letters" between the feminist doc and lesbian enlisted woman. At least what we were able to publish on a site like this, read by people of all ages. Most of the messages were "x-rated." And we reported one particular scene where the Navy commander's three-year old daughter wrapped her arms around "mommy's" leg and begged her "not to go." The little girl didn't understand what the big attraction was for the feminist mom. All she knew was, she was lonely for her mother to be home taking care of the young family.
When the doctor's hubby took the kids back to the States - he now has joint-custody while the "mother" lives with her lesbian girlfriend in Virginia - the Navy commander and her corporal lover were caught naked in her quarters. But the gutless brass bent over to be "politically correct." The officer got a transfer to a Navy hospital in Japan and the bull dyke didn't even lose a stripe. She received a - are you ready for this?- HONORABLE discharge. A year later, the female doctor left the Navy under similar circumstances. Would two males have been so lucky?
The stories stirred up quite a fuss, and for a time, MilitaryCorruption.com was banned at Marine Corps installations worldwide. A boneheaded colonel at Quantico - we know who he is - thought he could get away with pulling the plug on us, but an open letter to the Commandant and constant phone calls to the USMC public affairs office in the Pentagon finally resulted in the ban being lifted.
They knew we were ready to go into Federal Court and fight it out over our First Amendment rights and freedom of the press. The top brass realized that kind of battle wouldn't help the Corp's image one bit, so the idiot 0-6 who ran IT (whom we gave a lesson to in "military courtesy" via telephone) was overruled.
Let's hope our publicizing this latest embarrassment at Iwakuni doesn't result in similar tactics being used. If you Marines find access to www.militarycorruption.com is suddenly being blocked on your installation, get word to us right away and we will make sure those responsible live to regret it
