SHE’S BACK! – FORMER NAVY LCDR SY PENLAND
FIRST FEMALE OFFICER TO BE JAILED FOR
“ADULTERY” PUBLISHES TELL-ALL BOOK “BROKEN
SILENCE” – MUTLI-TALENTED WRITER AND POETESS
DOESN’T “GET MAD,” SHE “GETS EVEN”
If ever there was an auto-biography with an appropriate title, this is it.
At last, America’s most talented female poetess (now that Maya Angelou has passed on) has broken her silence with a bombshell book by the same name.
Penland’s previous literary work was (rated four stars on MilitaryBookshelf) ESSENCE OF BLACK BEAUTY. Unlike other published poetry that more resembles stream-of-consciousness babble, Penland writes her poems with perfect meter and rhyme. Her style is similar to the famed Christina Rossetti.
Loyal and longtime readers of MilitaryCorruption.com will recall this former Navy lieutenant commander and genuine whistleblower survived retaliation from those she tried to expose.
BROKEN SILENCE (A MILITARY WHISTLEBLOWER’S FIGHT FOR JUSTICE),” is a modern-day Scarlet Letter of Naval officer Syneeda Penland, who was convicted of adultery after she blew the whistle on defense contracting fraud.
NAVY TRIED TO DESTROY “WHISTLEBLOWER”
Those who operate in darkness and seek to cheat and defraud the government banded together to destroy the former Supply Corps officer’s impeccable career and used her conviction and jail time as an “example” to others.
Differing from Nathaniel Hawthorne’s romantic fiction, BROKEN SILENCE is a true survival story of a courageous military whistleblower’s fight for justice. Similar to Hester Prynne in THE SCARLET LETTER, Syneeda was forced to trade her gold oak leaf and stripes she proudly wore on her military uniform for a symbolic “A” of adultery.
Adultery is not a crime in civilian court, but the Navy’s top brass who went after the honest financial officer knew this could be a tool that would lead to her destruction. They wanted to “muzzle” her any way they could, and used the military’s justice system to silence her. Until now.
