"RAMBO" ROARS OFF IN STOLEN HUMVEE
That's right. His name is "Rambo," but the GI who roared off in a stolen Humvee from Fort Carson, Colo. isn't the Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone. This Rambo's named "Wayne," and the private, who was absent without leave, wasn't acting in any action movie. This was the real thing.
But the performance proved short-lived. A sheriff's deputy in Goodland, Kansas pulled over the AWOL soldier and slapped handcuffs on him. Wayne Rambo didn't "rumble" or even resist. He knew he had to go back to his base and "face the music."
Meanwhile, down at Fort Rucker, Ala., Staff Sgt. Matt Anderson is nowhere to be found. Seems he slipped way from his MP guards just before the sentencing phase of his court-martial on sex charges at the Alabama installation was set to begin.
Anderson had a good reason to skip. He'd just been convicted at his three-day trial on three counts of "indecent assault," and two counts of "dereliction of duty." Chances were good he'd lose his stripes and go to the slammer.
Army investigators have passed the word to all civilian cops in the area - be on the lookout for the 32 year-old Hispanic male. Despite the widely publicized dragnet, however, the NCO is considered "not dangerous" according to a Fort Rucker flack.
