MIKE REPORTS … I’m not sure if MilitaryCorruption.com heard or not, but three soldiers have been found dead at the Joint Base in Elmendorf Alaska. All in the month of April. Army says they are non corona related, and are ‘investigating’. All were males in their mid to late 20’s. Along with the soldiers found dead at Joint base Elmendorf, two young soldiers were also found dead in their barracks rooms at the end of March at Camp Humphries, Korea. Both were also in their 20’s, and one was a female medic. The other was a 20 year old Specialist 4, who was with the 2nd Armored brigade (Ft. Riley, KS.), who are currently in the middle of a Kore rotation Both died just two days after one another. March, 21st and March, 23rd. Army says both are NOT Corona-19 related, and that they are ‘investigating’ (as usual).

FROM MC.Com … Does anyone out there have additional information about these deaths?

HELEN REPORTS… So there is a young boy who was murdered by his step mom. His name is Gannon Stauch. His dad Al was in the military. I followed this case and a recent video on it seems to point to false rape allegations at a base in Alaska and a female military member working with the step mom to take down an officer. This video has some particular it appears leaks from the military end. I follow your work and thought of you on this case. I wanted to see if you can look into it and see what happened up there in Alaska. The unfortunate young man was murdered in CO by this crazy step mom who appears to have been up to some disgusting thing on a base in Alaska. I have attached the link HERE.

FROM MC.Com … We will look into it. Anyone out there with information please contact us. Thanks.

FROM ASSOCIATED PRESS… The AP’s ARTICLE about whether Captain Crozier will resign or be reinstated.

TYLER DURDEN OF ZEROHEDGE.COM REPORTS … In an extremely worrisome development signaling the coronavirus peak in the United States could last longer than expected, the US Navy has found that most COVID-19 cases aboard the virus-stricken aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt are among sailors who are asymptomatic.

“Sweeping testing of the entire crew of the coronavirus-stricken U.S. aircraft carrier Theodore Roosevelt may have revealed a clue about the pandemic: The majority of the positive cases so far are among sailors who are asymptomatic, officials say,” Reuters reports.

This suggests the virus could be spreading more frequently by stealth mode in the broader population, with many more people than is known walking around walking around with the disease unawares.

At least 655 Roosevelt sailors have now tested positive, including one death and multiple hospitalizations, out of a total crew of a about 4,800. It’s startling that the Navy has found that out of over 600 COVID-19 infected sailors, the majority have displayed no symptoms.

Testing is about 95% complete on the entire crew since the ship was diverted to Guam last month amid a spiraling crisis on board.

“With regard to COVID-19, we’re learning that stealth in the form of asymptomatic transmission is this adversary’s secret power,” Rear Admiral Bruce Gillingham, surgeon general of the Navy, told reporters.

The Navy specified that 60% of the Roosevelt’s positive cases “so far have not shown symptoms”. Crucially, Reuters points out that the “figure is higher than the 25% to 50% range offered on April 5 by Dr. Anthony Fauci”.

This is likely due the fact that enlisted military ranks tend to be already very healthy individuals in their 20’s and early 30’s. The carrier crew also provides a key active case study given the isolation of nearly 5,000 people apart from broader society, and the young, fit demographic.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper told NBC’s Today on Thursday that the conclusions regarding asymptomatic spread aboard the ship conclusions are “disconcerting”. Esper said, “It has revealed a new dynamic of this virus: that it can be carried by normal, healthy people who have no idea whatsoever that they are carrying it,” Esper said.

While this is not a new revelation, the case of the Roosevelt carrier and its crew provides shocking and clear confirmation that this reality is likely playing out on a much broader scale than previously thought.

Will This Pandemic Finally Mark the End of the US Carrier Fleet?
THE SAKER • APRIL 16, 2020 

Frankly, I have never considered USN carrier strike groups as a “Cold War capable” element of the US Navy. Yes, in theory, there was the notion of forward deploying these carriers to “bring the war to the Soviets” (on the Kola Peninsula) before they could flush their subs and aircraft through the GUIK gap and into the Atlantic. In theory, it should have been a 600 ship navy too, but that never happened.  Read More…

TREY MAILS TO MC.Com … I am happy to see people bringing corruption to light. I wish I had known there were resources like this when I was active duty in 2017. I was harassed for years for being injured and writing my congressman for help. I was denied my promotion to Sergeant purely because the Lt. Col. didn’t like me (they made it look like an accidental non-rec). They tried to strip me of an honorable discharge at he end but failed. However, they did successfully strip my security clearance by submitting a fraudulent investigation report. This cost me and my family to be homeless for a month and several thousand dollars in debt to be accrued shortly after I EAS’d. If I could have one mission in life it would be to rid the Marine Corps of corruption. I wish I could have had my shoulder fixed and stayed active duty. I miss being a Marine. Thank you for this awesome website.
