TWO-STAR GENERAL FIRED - THOMAS KATKUS
MAJ GEN Thomas Katkus has been fired.
The adjutant general of the Alaska National Guard was ousted by Gov. Sean Parnell after completion of a six-month federal investigation.
Parnell had called for the probe after receiving many reports of wrong-doing in the state guard, which included the systematic ostracizing of female guard members who complained about sexual assault.
Victims were retaliated against, the report noted, and some were not afforded counseling and had their privacy violated when word got out they had
It was found that reports by some sex-assault victims were not even properly recorded prior to 2012. Katkus assumed command of the Alaska Guard in 2009.
PROBELMS FOUND RAN THE GAMUT FROM
Many other problems were uncovered.
"A high level of misconduct" in the recruiting and retention command was found as well as cover-ups of rape, drug trafficking and weapons smuggling.
"Morale was simply shot to hell," a company-grade officer told MilitaryCorruption.com last week.
Now that Katkus has been ousted, things can only go up from there, sources say.
OUSTED GENERAL IN GUARD 37 YEARS
The bald-headed general enlisted in the Alaska Guard in 1977 and graduated from OCS three years later.
Besides his many years as a Guard officer, the now-disgraced two-star served on the Anchorage Police Department.
Katkus, a onetime K-9 dog handler and desk sergeant, retired as a captain after 21 years service in 2000.
[EDITOR'S NOTE: -- Corruption in the National Guard is quite common throughout the country. One of the worst states for that has been New Jersey. We invite our readers to check out the links below, which illustrates how much of a despot some craven generals - especially obese egomaniacs like the late Gen. Frank Gerard - can be.]
