AIR FORCE LTC GETS “THE BOOT”
CAUGHT FALSIFYING PERFORMANCE
EVALUATIONS – TRIED TO GET OTHERS
TO LIE FOR HIM AND COVER IT UP


When Lt. Col. Joseph Wilson ripped less than perfect performance evaluations for 2000 and 2001out of his “records jacket” and inserted forgeries, he never figured he’d get caught.

The former commander of the 554th Red Horse Squadron at Osan AFB in Korea didn’t count on “eagle-eyed” enlisted members who blew the whistle on the fakery.

Wilson even asked his first sergeant to lie for him, but the “top-kick” would have none of it.

Our CI’s (confidential informants) at Osan tell us Wilson was “in zone” for promotion to colonel and “wanted 0-6 something bad.” Now the light colonel will be lucky to salvage a pension check. At ANY rank!

Lt. Gen. Lance Smith, commander of Korea-based 7th Air Force will review and decide if the court-martial sentence stands or is altered.

If Wilson stays in, it’ll be at a lower grade. That’s for sure. But Air Force noncoms tell MilitaryCorruption.com that the light colonel “should get the boot.” One old-timer said, “if an E-7 did something like that, he’d be on the fast track to the DB.”

“You might call this case – ‘close but no cigar,’” said a wry observer. “Wilson was just two months short of minimum qualification for retirement after 20 years service.”
