It takes a real lowlife to do what retired Arizona National Guard COL James Burnes did. He stole from his fellow soldiers and betrayed their trust.

Burnes, of Tempe, AZ, managed funds earmarked to provide emergency relief for Guard men and women in need of financial assistance.

The thefts, which according to court papers totaled some $2 million, took place over a two-year period when the sicko colonel was feeding what he calls "a bad gambling habit."

STEALING FROM FELLOW SOLDIERS - AS LOW AS YOU CAN GO

Attorney Gen. Tom Horne blasted Burnes for "shamelessly stealing from needy service members and their families." Arizona's top cop promised to push for a long jail term when the colonel comes before Judge Susan Branovich.

The 66 year-old retired full bird deserves to get the book thrown at him.

He's scheduled to be sentenced March 28 in Maricopa County Superior Court.
