Army Abuse Cases

Asked if the Prime Minister believed there was a systemic problem of abuse in the army, the PMOS said we did not believe there was a systemic problem of abuse. The right thing was to let the proper processes continue, which was what we were doing.

  1. my husband and a lot more soldiers here at ft riley are being abused, harrased and humiliated..My husband was assaulted by an nco after months of threats. His unit still believes it is nothing personal,and still covers up the abuse. I am learning about more and more abuse. A soldier was cavity searched in front of his platoon. A soldier was punched in the stomach over and over for being new. That sloidier is now in a mental hospital, and his wife just had a baby. Many married with family soldiers get in trouble from sometimes big things to small things for instance my truck insurance lapsed and my husband got an article 15. From this they took 312.00 of our pay and confined my husband to the barraks for 60 days with 45 days extra duy. Meanwhile numerous soldiers in a company tested positive for cocaine. I spole with one and he said all he got was 14 days extra duty. Talked yesterday to a soldier who tested positive for marajuana. He said they did not take his pay because he had a family.The list goes on. I cannot understand why noone is concered about what is really going on in the army. The army has become a prison to us and noone wants to hear. There is army abuse here in the states at every army base in the us. Can someone direct me in what to do with all of this information.

  2. I tried to inform the Secretary of Defense and the Secretary of the Army of the abusive behavior I was subjected to while working with the Army in the Washington, DC area. The outcome was: an immediate termination and removal from federal services; revocation of my security clearance; blocking my employment in the government and the private sector; black listing me; tapping my telephone; computer and telephone intrusion; threatening to take action against other members of the family, and other actions as well. The abuse orders come from higher authorities; they authorize these acts themselves, support them and provide the necessary tools.
