Okay boys and girls I can’t pass this up, the CSA, General “Big Ray” Odierno stated in Army Times, that:
Demoting a four-star general for spending misconduct could be harsh and would force the officer to lose as much as $1 million in retirement pay, the Army’s top military officer said Monday, noting that a lower level officer would never be asked to pay such a high price.
That’s right boys and girls a lower ranking officer wouldn’t suffer as much. I guess he failed to ask COL (Formerly) Johnson, or the myriad of other Officers, NCOs, and Soldiers would not have received such a punishment.
- Not sure how much the scum bag Johnson lost, but I guess when you add it up its not as bad as a million dollars. I doubt he would agree with that, you know a Federal Conviction, loss of retirement pay, a huge fine, oh by the way may have a tough time getting a job because of his criminal conviction.
- A Senior NCO would have gotten more, unless he was of that other protected fraternity, the Sergeant Major Protective Association.
- A soldier would have gone to Leavenworth. No one would have been concerned about his family, we need to set an example would have been the hue and cry.
No, the Four General Officer Fraternity has decided to protect one of its own by precluding justice from being done.
I have a suggestion to the CSA, “Big Ray”, similar to an earlier suggestion to the Sergeant Major of the Army, “shut your pie hole.”
This post reflects the opinion of the author but does not reflect the prevailing wisdom of the General Officer or Sergeant Major Mafia, but does reflect the general disgust of soldiers.
