CARLISLE BARRACKS CAPERS
May 18, 2002
Our second-to-none coverage of the Bartlett murder
case (which brought us a great deal of notice from the mainstream media), has
resulted in a 40% daily jump in the number of HITS logged on to this site from
all over the United States and around the world.
Soon we shall pass FIVE MILLION unique page views, with the sky the limit.
From late summer of 2000, when we publicly defeated an attempt at censorship
of our web site at Carlisle Barracks, we have grown stronger than ever. In those
days, the question being asked on post was - WHO reads CARLISLE BARRACKS CAPERS?
Now the question is, WHO doesn't? Our readers may wait until they get home to
get on the PC, but they do, and in greater and greater numbers. THANK YOU everyone!
Since the DUMMY - a certain bumbling PAO on post - couldnt
hunt down or control our CIs at the Barracks, we scooped our
friends at the PATRIOT and SENTINEL with specific, and heretofore unknown details
of the sensational murder case.
Well, heres some more INSIDE information. Domestic strife in the Bartlett
household was not unknown to the military police. They had occasion to go to
the colonels residence several times prior to the fatal beating that cost
likeable Suzanne Bartlett her life. Perhaps something could have been done to
prevent the tragedy that happened. But now we will never know.
Also, the Army has publicly revealed something we knew from the start. The case
against LTC Bartlett is strong enough for them to risk going for a charge of
premeditated murder. Yes, a certain computer holds the key. But
we wont go into details before the trial.
Well, THE BULLY had a good day for a change. Kind-hearted
Gen. Robert Ivany actually pinned the Legion of Merit on the under-achieving LTC.
Sadly, for him, the foul-mouthed field grade retires from the Army after a less
than brilliant career.
With a West Point sheepskin in hand, one would have thought THE BULLY
would at least be a bird colonel by now, but our friends up on the Hudson tell
us the pal of the Carlisle, Pa. Police Dept. made a powerful enemy
way back when and thus had his career short-circuited.
Nearly three decades of commissioned service and only 0-5 to show for it! We know
some ROTCs and drones in the National Guard that got 0-6 in
much less time. But then, they were more adept at office politics.
He may have a nasty disposition, but one thing we can say in THE BULLYs
favor. He isnt reticent about letting you know what he thinks of you.
While were on the subject of MHI, (welcome, COL Hall), we cant
resist reproducing in part this e-mail memo that made the rounds in Upton Hall
FYI This message is a reminder that neither the snacks, water or
coffee are FREE. There is a FEE involved if you wish to consume or partake of
any of these items. MHI does NOT pay for these.
The memo continues: Several staff members that are NOT fund members have
been OBSERVED by the SECURITY SYSTEM helping themselves to these items. Your cooperation
is greatly appreciated.
Seems anyone with itchy fingers and a taste for treats who has not kicked in to
the fund, better be ready to smile cause YOURE
ON CANDID CAMERA!
ATTENTION PMO Why havent your MPs
ticketed a certain truck that turns up regularly parked behind the
Finance Building near the dumpster? It is red with Texas plates. The driver
has been known to operate the vehicle in town with the lights out after visiting
a local watering hole. Dont you think the other folks on post who get ticketed
might like equal enforcement?
A hint to the above-mentioned officer. If youd roll out of bed
a little earlier in the morning, instead of waiting until 0815 to find a parking
spot, you wouldnt have to hide your truck from roving MP patrols.
We havent always been kind to Griffin Services in previous CAPERS columns.
But wed like to say GOOD-BYE and WELL DONE to a real gentleman who deserved
better, the Griffin project manager, COL Bob Shields. He is very well thought
of by his workers and he truly tried to make Carlisle Barracks a better place.
His wife works at Dunham Clinic (where we have many loyal readers) so were
sure Bob will be around socially, but still, its a shame what happened.
One thing you can be sure of is that DPWs Alan Thompson and Battlin
Brother Bill Lewis wont be on the colonels Christmas card list.
Speaking of Alan Thompson, we see hes about to
lose yet another of his top lieutenants. This time its a certain bald-headed
chief warrant officer, double-dipping as a GS-11. An avid biker, this
character mystified many as to what he really did for the government
on post. We hear his job is being eliminated. Karen Stinson will take on whatever
he was supposed to be doing, but with no promise of promotion. All this once again
proves that on Carlisle Barracks, a good woman can pull her own weight and take
on the job of any man on post.
Maybe MilitaryCorruption.com should launch a missing
program ALERT. Does anyone know what happened to the VIOLENCE IN THE WORKPLACE
training course on post? This much-needed effort has not been around since the
dark old days of Pathetic Bobby.
That former commandant, best known for a pair of inscribed panties
and all the empty bottles his minions had to lug out of Quarters One
after a party, was also known for having a MEAN temper.
In his heyday, Pathetic Bobby liked to micro-manage
Collins Hall and use the STAR-TREK technology of the Audio Visual
Department to support VIP Army conferences held there. Seems one morning, the
irritable general went over in person to check the set-up for an event on his
schedule. But there was no set-up! Someone on his staff failed to brief Prof.
Campbell and no orders had been issued to the civilian and military staff on duty.
Our eagle-eyed CIs tell us the commandant flew into a RAGE! Yelling and
swearing, Pathetic Bobby began kicking on locked doors in the studio
complex. One courageous civilian staffer, a GS-11 we know who he is, but
we wont name him here was so taken aback by the outburst, he went
to the ACS office later and filed a formal violence in the workplace
complaint on the commandant!
Well, we said he was BRAVE.
Soon, things got very difficult for him around Carlisle Barracks and
he ended up in a much more congenial position in Europe. He was only following
Army policy about VIOLENCE in the workplace, but when an infantile
temper-tantrum is thrown by a two-star general, apparently THAT is
Some very dedicated, longtime volunteers on Carlisle
Barracks are becoming disgruntled. The new civilian guards are making it very
hard for these good folks to enter and leave post. They lack standard vehicle
and personal IDs.
Thats a problem our readers at Garrison Headquarters could easily take care
We hear that TOMMY-BOYs daily dress requirements might well
include a black arm band to show his rank as Official Undertaker at
the Military History Institute. If someone wants to kill off a program
and bury the evidence no one does it better than TOMMY-BOY.
COL Pappas, the aging founder of MHI, must be fuming as he sees donations to his
organization drying up and coming to a halt. The Veterans Survey Program
was the heart and soul of the organization. It prospered under Pappas, survived
under a series of light colonels, and then took off like a rocket when a senior
GS-5 clerical employee stood in for her LTC boss when he retired. This classy
lady befriended retired generals, kept in daily communication with veterans organizations,
and attended veterans reunions in the region on her own time and expense.
The best and the biggest of the collections at MHI came about through the World
war II and Korean War Surveys. When this outstanding female employee asked her
chain of command for a well-deserved promotion and recognition for her efforts,
the former Director slapped her down with reprimands and suspensions. He cut off
her contacts and read her mail. THE BULLY reorganized and turned the
survey project over to his sometime pal, TOMMY-BOY.
Not only did this retired loser from the Berlin Brigade kill off the two existing
surveys, he failed completely to launch a timely Vietnam Survey, disgracefully
leaving the heroes of that war to found their own Vietnam Museum in Texas. As
Nam vets ourselves, we at MilitaryCorruption.com wish this effort in Texas the
Carlisle Barracks has missed the boat on having a world-class Vietnam archives.
The slimeball known as The KENTUCKY RUG MERCHANT, The CHAMELON and their PMO buddy
had a big role in that. We hear the Marine Corps Historical Society gets that
fabulous and priceless collection of books, tapes, photographs and memorabilia.
