When a soldier in the United States Army receives orders to Fort Hood, Texas, they are entering the gates of hell. Fort Hood seems to have more than its share of disappearances and death. Is it a jinx? Is it bad leadership? What in the world is going on at the Army facility at Fort Hood, Texas?
For the sake of intellectual honesty, a base commander has limited power to prevent senseless killings, especially on a military reservation of this size. This is especially true since the standards to enter the military continue to spiral down the toilet.
The recruiters used to say, “Sorry, the military does not allow tattoos.” After awhile, fewer and fewer people were eligible because American society became more accepting of tattooed people.
Recruiters then used to say, “Sorry, you cannot enter the military if you’re doing drugs.” After awhile, fewer and fewer people were eligible, so the military allowed in only certain types of drug users.
The military mirrors American society. Tattoos have been around for centuries, especially in the military. Whether they are an example of the lowering of military standards is debatable.
But make no mistake, SOCIETAL DECLINE IS INSIDIOUSLY OOZING INTO THE AMERICAN MILITARY, WHICH IS SUBTLY ERODING OUR MILITARY POWER.
It’s only a matter of time before sailors, soldiers, airmen and Marines are allowed to burn down buildings on base and destroy statues and pictures they don’t agree with.
LACK OF LEADERSHIP
Thousands, upon thousands of personnel work on or near the sprawling Fort Hood Army base. The Army is bound to have drug deals going south, that end up in a shoot out at the OK Corral, or have jealous partners who find themselves in the eternal triangle, and decide to resolve matters with a knife or gun.
The Army is bound to have its share of people who are chronic sexual harassers. And, the Army is bound to have their share of commanders who either ignore sexual harassment or overtly attempts to cover-up such incidences especially when it concerns a friend or high-ranking officer. That’s referred to as a sort of “convenient ethics.”
Even with all the things that lure young people down the wrong path, it’s made much worse by commanders who do nothing because they want to avoid confrontation. To ensure their next promotion, officers prefer to go along to get along. Instead of having weak leadership, there is no leadership at all.
Military commanders derelict in their duty, because they want to stay on the politically-correct side of the fence? Are they derelict in carrying out their duties because they don’t have a leadership bone in their bodies?
Or, is it a self-centered issue, where commanders are only thinking of getting that next promotion, and don’t want to rock the boat? Whoops, we’re talking in naval terminology again… sorry.
MilitaryCorruption.com is betting the Army knew a long time ago, they had a serious problem with Spc. Aaron Robinson sexually harassing women on post, but looked the other way because they are insensitive to the plight of being a woman in a male dominated environment.
Or, was it because Aaron was African American and they feared being painted with the racist brush if they held him accountable for his sexual harassment of co-workers.
If the Army was ignoring his sexual harassment, Robinson probably felt he was untouchable, and the sexual harassment of women at Fort Hood became intolerable.
When Army Spc. Vanessa Guillen decided to stand up to Robinson, threatening to file an official sexual harassment complaint, Robinson went berserk killing her with a hammer, then cutting up her body to be discarded. What did the Army know and when did they know it?
LET’S TALK ABOUT ARMY MAJOR NIDAL HASAN
On November 5, 2009, a US Army psychiatrist (Major Nidal Hasan) went into jihad mode, killing 13 people, an unborn child and injured 32 others in a shooting rampage, all while yelling Allah Akbar. Five years later, Fort Hood was struck again when another nut killed three people and injured 16 others before killing himself.
Even though Major Hasan was a jihadist, his murderous rampage was not labeled as terrorism because it wasn’t politically correct to accuse someone of what they actually are. Col. Nathan Jessup (Jack Nicholson) said, “You want the truth, you can’t handle the truth.”
The government preferred a more politically-palatable term of “workplace violence” instead. Consequently, all of the surviving victims of Major Hasan’s rampage were denied valuable and desperately needed benefits.
Out of the corner of their mouths, government policy makers whispered, ‘thank you for your service.’
For some reason, Fort Hood is now facing yet another series of tragic incidences, that include disappearances, murders, suicides, drownings, you name it. It was not until Spc. Vanessa Guillen was murdered, when the U.S. Army decided to investigate the horrific loss of life at Fort Hood. Or, at least look like they are investigating.
Again folks, when you have the Army investigating the Army, you virtually guarantee the flag-ranking officers will be protected and some low-ranking poor slob will be thrown under the bus in an effort to satisfy the loved ones of those who have died, and get the politically correct Pentagon and their taskmasters off your back.
Besides Spc. Guillen, at least seven soldiers stationed at Fort Hood have died or been found dead since March, including one who took his life after becoming a suspect in Guillen’s disappearance.
There have been twenty-three (23) deaths this year among the post’s 36,500 soldiers. According to Army officials, the deaths include…
seven off-duty accidents;
one combat-related death;
four homicides, one of which was on the base;
two of natural causes;
one that was undetermined pending an autopsy;
and one drowning
PVT. Mejhor Morta
Pvt. Mejhor Morta is the most recent soldier stationed at Fort Hood reported to have died. Fort Hood officials identified Morta, 26, after he was found unresponsive on July 17 near Stillhouse Hollow Lake, about 16 miles from the base. Fishermen found his body at the base of a dam. A preliminary autopsy showed the cause of death was consistent with a drowning. A full autopsy has yet to be completed, and the investigation is ongoing. Pvt. Morta was from Pensacola, Florida and joined the Army in September 2019, as a Bradley Fighting Vehicle mechanic.
SPC. Vanessa Guillen
Guillen’s case gained national attention when the 20-year-old vanished in April 2020. The search ended when her remains were discovered June 30 in a shallow grave. Vanessa Guillen was bludgeoned to death in an armory room where she worked repairing small arms. She was bludgeoned to death with a hammer in the armory room, and her body was cut up and transported, or transported and cut up. Guillen was a private first class when she disappeared, but was promoted to in a feeble attempt to appease her parents.
Aaron David Robinson
Officials identified the main suspect in Guillen’s disappearance and murder as 20-year-old Spc. Aaron David Robinson, who killed himself as police closed in. Spc. Guillen planned to file a harassment complaint against Robinson the day after she was killed. Fort Hood officials previously said they were not aware of reports of sexual harassment involving Robinson, but there’s an ongoing investigation that includes allegations of sexual harassment. Robinson called a woman he was involved with to help him dispose of Guillen’s body after moving it off the post. She was later arrested by Texas Rangers in connection with Guillen’s disappearance and faces, at a minimum, a federal charge of conspiracy to tamper with evidence. Robinson was not part of Guillen’s chain of command, only a sexually-harassing co-worker.
Gregory Scott Morales
The skeletal remains of Pvt. 2nd Class Gregory Scott Morales were discovered in a field in Killeen, Texas, on June 19 — 10 months after the 24-year-old vanished, according to the Army’s Criminal Investigative Division (CID). Foul play is suspected, according to a statement from Fort Hood. CID is investigating alongside the Killeen Police Department.
Morales was last seen on the night of August 19, 2019, driving his personal vehicle in Killeen, Texas. Morales — who was known as Gregory Wedel before he took his wife’s last name — was scheduled to be discharged within a couple days when he vanished. Morales was from Sapulpa, Oklahoma and joined the Army in June 2015 as a motor transport operator.
Brandon Scott Rosecrans
Pfc. Brandon Scott Rosecrans was found dead on May 18 in Harker Heights, Texas. Rosecrans’ death is being investigated as a murder after he was found with a gunshot wound. The same day, Rosecrans’ 2016 Jeep Renegade was found burned. Local fire marshals are investigating the burning as arson. Family members have vowed to get justice for Rosecrans. Rosecrans, a 27-year-old quartermaster and chemical equipment repairer, joined the Army in May 2018. Brandon Michael Olivares, 28 has been charged with Brandon’s murder.
Freddy Beningo Delacruz Jr.
Spc. Freddy Delacruz Jr., 23, died March 14, in Killeen, Texas. Delacruz was found dead with two others at an apartment complex. All three suffered gunshot wounds and the case is being treated as a triple homicide. The 23-year-old was from Vidalia, Georgia. He joined the Army in November 2017 as a cavalry scout.
Christopher Wayne Sawyer
Spc. Christopher Wayne Sawyer, 29, was found unresponsive on March 5 in his residence on the sprawling Fort Hood Army base. Law enforcement officers say they do not suspect foul play but had not ruled it out. Sawyer, of Longview, Washington, joined the Army in October 2017. He was a wheeled vehicle mechanic.
Shelby Tyler Jones
Spc. Shelby Tyler Jones died March 1 after he suffered an apparent gunshot wound in south Killeen, Texas. The 20-year-old’s death was under investigation by the Killeen Police Department, which said in a news release that investigators believe Jones was shot at a club before he was found at a convenience store. The case was presented to a grand jury on June 11, and the district attorney declined to prosecute. “The case has been exceptionally cleared,” police said. Jones, a native of Jena, Louisiana, joined the Army in May 2017 as a cavalry scout.
FORT HOOD SOLDIERS CHARGED
IN PROSTITUTION RING
On Saturday, a few days ago, the Killeen, Texas Special Victim’s Unit concluded a two-day child prostitution sting where they arrested nine suspects, two of whom are Fort Hood soldiers. The girls were 15 and 16 years old. Sex was traded for money, drugs and alcohol.
Suspects were apprehended without incident and the operation concluded with seven felony prostitution charges, two misdemeanor prostitution charges, and two guns confiscated.
Fort Hood soldiers, Anthony Xavier Antwon, 25, and Timmy Jones, 30, were charged with felony prostitution. Do you think the morality train in the Army (and other branches of service) has jumped the tracks?
Too many Millennaials believe that having “morals” smacks of the Bible, and many in our society simply do not believe in God. But, when we are elbow to elbow on this planet, the only glue that will bind our society together, is having a strong moral compass, a reverence for the law, both bound together with the practice of common courtesy.
HAS A FLAG OFFICER,
ACTUALLY BEEN FLAGGED?
Army two-star general’s next assignment delayed over major Fort Hood command review. Maj. Gen. Scott Efflandt, deputy commander of III Corps at Fort Hood, has apparently been “flagged,” meaning that no favorable action can be taken while an investigation is being conducted.
Flagging a flag-ranking officer is rarely done (as far as we know), but we do know that after reservist Major Dan Johnson stole $7,000+ from the Army, he was never flagged, which allowed him to resign with an honorable discharge. The point is… some people they flag, and some people they don’t.
Hey Maj. Gen. Efflandt, you have no need to worry; the investigation is being conducted by the Army… and you are a major general in the Army. So, pack your bags and get ready to move to your new duty station and be promoted to Lt. General. Remember, in the Army (and other services), “you fuck up to move up.”
AND YOU WANT TO JOIN THE MILITARY?
No one, in their right mind, should go into the military until meaningful reforms are made.
Your life is in danger, because we don’t have leaders anymore, we have political animals who want to ingratiate themselves with the loonie left wingnuts. This is why Spc. Vanessa Guillen lost her life. They knew Aaron Robinson was a predator, and everyone looked the other way.
Think about it, you can go up to Seattle, Washington and burn down a few businesses, invade the police department, kill a few people, rape a few people… and that’s all OK.
Thousands of people can march down the street elbow to elbow without any masks, but if you go to church wearing a mask, patrons end up with a hundred dollar fine and their preacher is carted off to jail.
If you are in the military and do just a fraction of those indiscretions as described above, you can get decades behind bars in a federal penitentiary. Fraternization alone can get you a felony conviction and two years in a federal prison.
It’s all too crazy.
