MILITARYCORRUPTION.COM is a division of MILITARYINTEGRITY.COM. We are dedicated to fighting for the truth and exposing the corrupt in all branches of the military including various divisions of the American government associated with the military. We attempt through the exposure of corruption to fix what is broken. Unfortunately, the military sometimes does thing because, “that’s the way we’ve always done it!” Whether it’s right or wrong is frequently not a concern – America’s military sometimes does the wrong thing over and over and over again. The biggest problem we chronically see is unlawful command influence, and we will continue to expose criminal and unethical misconduct wherever and whenever it occurs.
MCC is now headquartered in California, but we have freelance writers and confidential sources all over the globe that contribute to our articles.
HOW WE GOT STARTED…
MilitaryCorruption.com (MCC) was established by Brigadier General Peter E. Genovese Jr., and Major Glenn MacDonald in year 2000. In May, 2018, the baton was passed to David Smallwood who improved and expanded the website.
BGEN Genovese joined the U.S. Army as a tactician and battalion commander. He became a full colonel at age 42, and was promoted to brigadier general at age 47. Following his tour with the Army, he joined the New Jersey National Guard.
Genovese was a graduate of the University of Scranton, Pennsylvania; the Command and General Staff College, Fort Leavenworth, Kan.; the U.S. Army War College, Carlisle Barracks, Pa.; and the National War College, Washington, D.C.
BGEN Peter Genovese passed away on May 19, 2002 at age sixty-four. Of all his accomplishments, which were many, he was no doubt most proud of establishing this website and his position as Chairman of the Board for MilitaryCorruption.com.
Two years before his death, General Genovese asked his trusty assistant Major Glenn MacDonald if he would create a website to expose the corruption occurring all around them. Genovese said he would fund it, if MacDonald would write it and a new alliance was formed to FIGHT FOR TRUTH AND EXPOSE THE CORRUPT.
OUR LEADER FOR EIGHTEEN YEARS
In the early days, Major MacDonald was an Army combat correspondent covering the Vietnam War. As he was boarding a helicopter one time in 1967, the pilot tossed him an M-16 saying, “If you fly with us, you fight with us.” MacDonald personally witnessed the horrors of war in Vietnam. Frequently, he found himself in the thick of the fight.
MacDonald’s SP4 combat photographer was nearby covering the street fighting Nha Trang during the Tet Offensive 1968, and received a fatal shot to his head as he stood up to take a picture. MacDonald had the unenviable task of removing the camera strap from the neck of his deceased friend and assigned photographer.
Witnessing a personal friend die on the field of battle is one of the many reasons that MacDonald fights so valiantly to raise and maintain the integrity of each and every American military member. Major MacDonald believes in the credo of PEACE THROUGH STRENGTH, but he also knows that America maintains it’s military strength from integrity that only truth can provide. MacDonald has fought for truth and exposed corruption all of his life.
Upon being released from active duty in the Army, MacDonald continued his association with the military in the National Guard and Army Reserve. In his civilian job he worked in various journalism capacities including the rough and tumble world of tabloid journalism at the New York Post where he covered the mafia, corrupt politicians, and up and coming businessman Donald J. Trump.
In fact in 1988, Trump offered MacDonald a job long before he became President, but Mac preferred to remain in the Newspaper Guild as a beat reporter. Since the year 2000, an article has been posted to MilitaryCorruption.com a minimum of every forty-eight (48) hours. While we are not there yet, one day we’ll be able to post articles every hour and immediately for breaking news.
Major MacDonald, still suffering from exposure to Agent Orange in Vietnam, decided to turn the baton over to former Navy lieutenant and pilot David Smallwood. It was a quiet change-of-command with very few people attending and a bottle of Maker’s Mark bourbon from Loretto, Kentucky.
Over nearly two decades and under the extraordinary leadership of Major Glenn MacDonald, MilitaryCorruption.com has established trustworthy contacts all over the world that help us monitor the American military as well as related government organizations.
As Major Mac continues to grapple with the debilitating effects of his health affliction, he decided to semi-retire by assuming the title of “Editor Emeritus.” In this way, he will remain a contributor to MCC for as long as possible.
