Fighting for the truth . . . exposing the corrupt
CARLISLE BARRACKS CAPERS
November 15, 2002
You regular readers will want to be sure and check out our NEW story on the sentencing of admitted killer, LTC David Bartlett. We have an exclusive interview with one of Bartletts boyhood pals from New Hampshire who gives us a peek at the mentality of the man who later beat his wife to death.
From the moment this story broke, MilitaryCorruption.com was miles ahead of the other media because our CIs are everywhere, on and off post. Even THE DUMMY, otherwise known as the bumbling PAO, failed to intimidate our people and plug the leaks. Inspector Clouseau dropped the ball again. Of course we were highly responsible in our news coverage, and while we knew EVERYTHING about this case, we only printed information that would not impede a conviction.
We fielded media inquiries from not only TV stations in Harrisburg, local newspapers and the wire services, but media all over the country. Our hard-earned reputation for reporting FACTS without fear or favor serves us well as we approach a readership of more than six million persons, worldwide.
LURID HEADLINES: Thats what theyd be if we were on the staff of the Philadelphia DAILY NEWS (tabloid) and covering the latest outrage at Carlisle Barracks.
Hows this for a sample? THE GOON SQUAD FILES: DRAGGED OUT OF HER GOVERNMENT OFFICE IN HANDCUFFS.
Did this happen to a dangerous terrorist? Was some terrible criminal loose at Carlisle Barracks? No, just the way the garrison commanders XO responded to perceived insubordination from the minority female Education Officer on post.
This hard-working woman and her part-time test monitor were trying to do the work of a five-person office. That is the MINIMUM staff necessary to guard, protect, and administer adult education in this region of Pennsylvania.
It was a busy day. Lots of people were showing up to take numbered academic tests stored in a government safe.
The test monitor had to watch the test takers in one room AND issue additional tests from the safe as more students arrived. The inevitable result was a stolen test.
The theft was reported up the chain-of-command to garrison headquarters. The ladies checked the regulations and found precise language stating stolen tests must be reported to officials at Pensacola, Fla. NO WAY! bellowed the flustered post XO. We will investigate ourselves, he declared. Leave the case to the MPs
The trembling GS-11 balked. She did her duty and obeyed the written law. The vindictive LTC then ordered his goon squad to drag her from the office in handcuffs. Our heroine was given a Carlisle Barracks grilling. Believe us, folks, you dont ever want to go through THAT.
In the end, the lady escaped with her job, but the unlucky test monitor got CANNED because she couldnt do TWO jobs at one time.
Our readers have been reminding us to cover the many romances of Bon Ton Bea, the sexy redhead who worked two jobs, raised some kids, and buzzed the Barracks in a hot, new Jaguar, allegedly supplied by one of her married admirers.
This bundle of sweet-smelling pulchritude had all the men lusting at her feet. They practically passed out in her high-charged presence!
Her after-work sales job at the Bon Ton Department Store gave her first choice of the smartest and tightest clothes. She was a buxom beauty indeed! So much so, that a certain diminutive officer at MHI we shall call LTC Elmer Fudd tried to rearrange his staff to promote her.
Besides the flashy Jaguar, this beauty was able to fake lots of overtime in Building 22, while doing something for her ardent admirer.
Sadly for Elmer, the senior transcriber targeted to make room for Beas promised promotion blew the lid off the cover story and took the scandal to MHIs senior historian.
The BIG BOSS closed down the love nest at Upton Hall and Bon Ton Bea got a quick lateral transfer to another office. Poor Elmer was disheartened, but not for long. He moved up the ladder and soon became the boyfriend of HOT PANTS. The one who rose in rank rather quickly.
Fudd is a major player in the so-called History Mafia, who call
the shots on the Museum in the Cornfield Project. Elmer may not be applying
for the job himself (he wants all of us to know), but he IS said to be brokering
deals with at least two insider candidates seeking the Title
X directors job THE BULLY and TOMMY-BOY.
Either one of them would be a DISASTER and spark a staff exodus and lots of trouble. Lets hope Gen. Ivany remembers all THE BULLYs indiscretions, and as far as TOMMY-BOY is concerned - hes such a jerk, everyone knows what a MISTAKE it would be to place HIM in such a high-profile position!
If its one thing the Carlisle Barracks command doesnt need, its embarrassing revelations. Especially after the target is sitting in the Directors chair. Itll be quite a chair to fill, since the last outstanding MHI director was Vietnam combat veteran, COL Steve Bowman, now a big success over in Germany.
While were on the subject of ELMER FUDD, our CIs report that HOT PANTS can be seen at lunch time trotting around post, trying to keep her figure lest ELMER finds a younger woman. One observer told us: If she runs any faster, she may do some collision damage to Alan Thompson and his pal Bill Lewis.
The latest foul-up to emerge from the Post Judge Advocates Office involves an Unfair Labor Practice Charge filed by the busy nurses down at Dunham Clinic.
Some years back, four or five of these desperate women tweaked the nose of the Tyrant of Dunham Clinic by joining the Box Kickers Local Union operating at New Cumberland Defense Depot. Nothing much happened in the way of effective union organizing or representation. Then, suddenly, the dues deductions STOPPED! After many months, the ladies initiated an inquiry, only to find out the union officers had totally forgotten them! No one had noticed the missing dues money!
Mr. Silverberg got the problem fixed and the payroll office resumed proper dues check-off. All was copacetic until the union asked Dunham Clinic to pay for the nurses uncollected dues a few hundred dollars at the most. The Department of Labor backed the union.
Now, our portly (gotta get out and do some PT on the track to melt off those excess pounds) parachutist prosecutor faces a no-holds-barred fight in Harrisburg Federal Court over this monumental issue.
Incidentally, we hear a certain pear-shaped former federal employee who organized these nurses has been sneaking away form his Griffin Services job to help the novice members with their appeal. Lets hope the surviving Battlin Brother at DPW doesnt catch him parking the big, white government box truck too close to Dunham Clinic. He is supposed to be checking on air-conditioning problems elsewhere on post. Hmmmm. Does anyone ever look at the odometers on these government vehicles?
Back in the days when (then-LTC) Mike Colpo served as an outstanding garrison commander at Carlisle Barracks, he issued a letter proposing an adverse action against one of his department heads. This well-deserving Harpie has been mentioned in many previous editions of CARLISLE BARRACKS CAPERS.
Anyway, the charge was time card fraud.
Colpos then-executive officer conducted a full investigation based on notes and logs kept by Shorthand Sharon, a frightened and abused clerical employee.
The foul-mouthed HARPIE was in big trouble. But, to everyones regret, Colpo moved on, and was followed by THE SCREAMER, who failed to carry out proper discipline.
Worse yet, the Bony Blond Bombshell sought to gain a promotion from her boss. We are told she lifted the coded shorthand notes from Sharons desk and had them translated in the Civilian Personnel Office. Ms. Dillsburg was tipped off!
Sharon was fingered as the whistleblower. Before long, the retaliation was complete. Sharon was forced to find a job at Dickinson College. Her federal career was ruined.
MilitaryCorruption.com warns federal workers everywhere keep your personal files at home, NOT AT THE OFFICE!
Now we have learned, just as the fiscal year is coming to a close, Ms. Dillsburgs office cant process the year-end closeout; TRADOCs inspection failed; overtime is needed; and employees at Fort Eustis have been drafted to process small purchase orders.
To top this off, our CIs report the new garrison commander at Carlisle Barracks has just been presented with iron-clad evidence that the high-flying Harpie is once again puffing the old time-card! Lets hope the charge sticks this time! We know of one female clerical employee who was given the tough choice RESIGN OR BE FIRED for the very same offense.
FLASH! WHAT FORMER BULLY-BOY AT CARLISLE BARRACKS, WHO HAD TO RETIRE AT A LESSER GRADE AFTER THREATENING AN UNDERCOVER FBI INTELLIGENCE ASSET - EQUIPPED WITH A VOICE-ACTIVATED MINI-CASSETTE RECORDER - IS ABOUT TO HEAR THE PROVERBIAL KNOCK ON THE DOOR AT STATE COLLEGE, PA.? WE HEAR THE FEDS WANT TO GRILL HIM FOR SOME THINGS HE DID IN HIS PAST. CAN YOU SPELL DISCIPLINARY BARRACKS BOYS AND GIRLS? WINTERS ARE COLD IN KANSAS.
