    A Fort Bragg brigadier general has been charged with forcible sodomy and other offenses involving sex, pornography and alcohol, Army officials said this morning.

    The Fayetteville Observer has been monitoring the case and learned of the charges this morning. Fort Bragg officials will hold a press conference this afternoon.

    "Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair has been charged with multiple violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice," said Col. Kevin V. Arata, the 18th Airborne Corps public affairs officer.

    Charges include attempted violation of an order, violations of regulations by wrongfully engaging in inappropriate relationships and misusing a government travel charge card.

    Sinclair was sent back to Fort Bragg from Afghanistan several months ago while serving as deputy commander of the 82nd Airborne Division headquarters.

    The charges are under the Uniform Code of Military Justices, the military legal system.

    I hope they hang the piece of shit.

    A former General of mine, retired MG Robert Erffmeyer, just passed away this last weekend. Now THAT was an honorable man. He was an enlisted Sailor in the Korean War, got out of the USN & went to college, took ROTC & received his commission in the Army. After retirement he went into the family business making jewelry, mostly military-type rings.

    Update:

    Coincidence - I just now heard of another Paratroop General of mine who died - retired MG Joseph Sheinkoenig. Kind of a prick but extremely straight-laced & as honest as can be. Another ROTC guy. He was Assistant Div.Commander as a BG under MG Erffmeyer. After retirement he went on to be the Commandant of St. John's Military Academy.

    Thanks Exo. I didn't mean to hijack the thread but I couldn't help remembering honorable gentlemen who wore stars in comparison to the subject of this thread. MG Erffmeyer was quite old. MG Sheinkoenig was my age, in fact a week younger. It hits home as I see many of my shipmates, teammates & battle buddies of all ranks biting the dust, lol.
