RETIRED NAVY CAPTAIN WHO SHOT DOWN
© 2014 MilitaryCorruption.com
Just when we thought we'd heard the last of the pampered son of a Navy vice-admiral - MilitaryCorruption.com helped stop Tim Dorsey from reaching flag rank a couple years ago, (he has since retired from the Naval Reserve as a four-striper) - he's back.
The 51 year-old Dorsey is general counsel for a shady outfit called USA Distributors. The Virginia firm is known for targeting enlisted service-members with bad credit, then suing them in court, knowing the money will be garnished from their pay check.
In 1987, Timmy boy was a lieutenant junior-grade and F-14 fighter-pilot. That's when the dummy scored a direct hit on a U.S. Air Force F-4 Phantom jet, blowing the tail off the friendly war plane during war games and nearly killing it's two man crew.
IT HELPS TO HAVE A DADDY WHO'S AN ADMIRAL
Many people thought such a screw-up would result in young Dorsey being booted from the Navy. But the fact that Dorsey's powerful daddy was a vice-admiral with Pentagon connections saved his son's ass.
Fast forward 25 years, and the same screwed-up Naval officer - he switched to intelligence corps after being grounded - was close to making flag rank. That was headed off, thank God, and Dorsey decided to retire as a captain from the Naval Reserve.
But he's back in the news as the pious chief lawyer for USA Distributors.
Get a load of his official statement:
"I am proud of my 30 years as a Navy officer in service to this country. I'm also proud of the work USA Discount has done in supporting military service members as well as programs aimed at veterans, youth and military families.
"To suggest that someone who wears the uniform of his country would treat fellow service members in any capacity with anything other than honor and respect, is both personally offensive and factually without merit."
Spoken like a lawyer. In others words, so much bullshit.
A FLIER'S LIFE AND CAREER RUINED
We know one ex-pilot and disabled former Air Force light colonel who isn't buying Dorsey's pompous and pretentious remarks.
Mike Ross has endured 32 surgeries in the past 27 years from his injuries bailing out of his crippled jet at 635 miles per hour. A bad back has him in constant pain.
The Georgia resident was shocked that Dorsey remained in the Navy after shooting the Air Force jet down and that his family connections almost got him admiral's rank. As for the bad reputation of USA Distributors., Ross is not at all surprised.
Not with "hot-trigger" Tim Dorsey as their chief attorney.
