Army recruiting Command is investigating about 38 recruiters in the Denver area for falsification of discharges (DD214) and other documents used for enlistments;
Those documents could include items such as phony diplomas and other altered records. The investigation was confirmed by Douglas Smith, a spokesperson for the United States Army Recruiting Command Public Affairs office at Fort Knox Kentucky. There are presently 307 recruiters in the Denver Army Recruiting Battalion. The number under investigation represents more than 10 percent. The recruiters work out of offices in Colorado, Nebraska, Wyoming, Kansas and a small part of Iowa.
CBS4 Denver report;
Of course the numb-nutted Left will charge that this is a result of Army policy, but like everything else that the Army has been accused of since 9-11, they’ve already begun their investigation and the only reason the media has a story is because they caught a whiff of the inquiry;
CBS4 Investigator Rick Sallinger learned of the Army probe through an internal email he obtained. It had been sent by the battalion commander Lt. Col. William Medina to his staff. He writes of an investigation involving “new suspected impropriety” and some recruiters “tarnishing the reputation of us all.”
The commander’s internal email adds, “leaders at any level who actively or passively condone, encourage or turn a blind eye to violations will be held accountable for failing to do their duty.”
I never spent a minute recruiting (except as an ROTC instructor) so I have no idea.
