What is happening at our military bases

What is happening at our military bases?

 

 

Apparently there has been a large issue with soldiers dying at or around military bases in the USA.

Here is what is been happening since January 1, 2016:

October 30, 2017 – FORT HOOD – General Joseph Martin, Commanding General, Ft Riley releases full statement outlining a post wide plan to combat the ever-increasing suicides at his post. (Suicides, really? wonder if this is the same effort to cover up as all the JP Morgan and other bankers killed in less than a year. They were also listed suicides. Geez). He became commander at Ft. Riley after Major General Grigsby was relieved of command and under investigation.

FORT HOOD – On November 5, 2009, a mass shooting took place at Fort Hood, near Killeen, Texas. Nidal Hasan, a U.S. Army major and psychiatrist, fatally shot 13 people and injured more than 30 others. It was the deadliest mass shooting on an American military base.

Military Justice For All – Facebook listed the following as of January 11, 2017:
72 deaths at Fort Hood since 1/16
4 insider attacks in Afghanistan
1 non combat death (suicide) in Iraq
1 non combat death in Korea

January 19, 2017 – Killeen Daily Herald FORT HOOD — A soldier found unresponsive in his barracks room Jan. 12 is the 11th noncombat-related death for the Army installation since November. His death also marked the fifth Fort Hood soldier death this month.   The Daily Herald reported on all 11 deaths.

I am sure there are others but these were shocking enough. I really had absolutely no idea of how absolutely huge this stateside problem is, did any of you?

Are these careless errors or equipment failure where training was involved? Or is there something more to be considered, like morale issues where soldiers act against others?

In the case of FORT HOOD, holy crap! Is that base haunted by evil or something? Is there something much more sinister happening? Despite the “alleged suicides” several of the families who posted on the Fort Hood Fallen believe that without doubt they have been lied to about their family member’s deaths. Some point out categorically that their sons would never opt for suicide so what is going on? Even MORE suspicious is the death of the CID investigator.  

Granted a few of these listed are newbies and probably a few careless errors. But I have to say, I find it extremely hard to believe that Special Forces personnel don’t check equipment or are prone to “accidents” without cause. I also found it extremely suspicious how many were found “unresponsive”. What the heck does that mean or imply? Were they all taking some designer or laced drug that killed them? Or was there something done to them? Another troubling thing is that for some reason lone or small groups of military are being targeted wherever they are in the areas mostly which have heavy gangs. Why would the enforcement and military outside of Fort Hood and Killeen allow that amount of dangerous drive-by gang activity or is it so bad that they are overwhelmed?

Whatever is going on needs to be seriously investigated from the top down. New commanders need to get a grip on what is going on and either put a stop or shot to kill those who are causing the problems on or around the bases. IF as it feels like to me there appears to be targeting of military personnel for some reason then lockdown on bases may need to be done. There has always been an ever-increasing problem with drugs on base and with black market of equipment. Equipment that is used in one training cycle with apparently no problems then suddenly blows up in another is just as suspect.  This staggering amount of incidents is going far beyond coincidental to have so many deaths in a one and a half-year span.

Parents deserve answers and bases deserve to be safe especially with all that they have and use.

    One thing that MIGHT be a factor– Millennials are pampered, sheltered from reality, etc, and military service is the first hard dose of reality, where effort– not mere participation– is rewarded, where failure is punished, not ignored, and so on. It could be that some are simply overwhelmed by Real Life and cannot handle it. Well, this is one POSSIBLE explanation.

  2. vonmesser says:

    Consider that 16 of last 24 years were under “hate America Despise the Military” regimes.(Clinton and Obama). These 2 regimes placed large numbers of restrictions on the military and also placed large number of political leaders, while removing real leaders.

    • Uriel says:

      No kidding. It has been sickening to watch once information filtered out. If nothing else the last four presidents should loose their taxpayer funding as a penalty for what was done to the military. Their funds should be shifted over to vets who deserve it far more than they do.

  3. Wise Owl says:

    All good points IMHO, and likely all are factors. Rarely does it boil down to just one.
