If you want the names, Read the Army times, they were published and so were the punishments. Its nothing new..This kind of stuff will happen as long as there is the situation that allows it. Guards nailing Female inmates, Cops getting hummers for speeding tickets, Drills banging Recruits, Priests screwing Alter Boys....it happens, It will continue to happen. Punish the ones who break the rules is about all you can do

Yep, I agree. A lot of posts suck, severely. I'm just stating what I know about the place. FLW had to be the coldest f'ing place in the universe, with the wind howling most of the time. Not to mention the shitty towns surrounding it, with absolutely NOTHING to do unless you ride two hours to St. Louis. Limited restaurants and everything. Plus the docs at FLW seem to love to prescribe painkillers out the ying-yang, not to mention illicit sex and everything else. I hope I NEVER see that GD place again!

What the hell is it that you people need to do so badly to travel to St. Louis to a bar or whatever, and why would it take anyone 2 hours to get to Springfield? And what kind of bars are you looking for? A drink is a drink is a drink.

People, you act like FLW is the only place in the world that this activity happens. There are over 20,000 people on this post, working, training and supporting this base. Yes, there are crimes committed here. Crimes that you would never here about in the outside world. How many Bosses out there screw their employees? That is what happens here. Only difference is, it is against the military law, so therefore it make the news.
Name me one town that has over 20,000 people that does not have crime, and no adultery is committed. As far as the community, it is no different than any other community. Yes there are 2 strip clubs here, and i bet if you checked into it, almost every community in this country has it somewhere. You just hear about it more here, because the media makes sure you do.
Same thing with the sex crimes. How often does the media report adultery cases all over the country. Never, because it is not a crime, but Everytime a soldier gets caught, it is all over the front page. Yes it happens, not it is not right, but persecute the wrong doers, not the majority of the military who have volunteered to serve this country

No one wants to persecute anyone, except the sons of guns who run that damn place. Not knowing WTF goes on ON YOUR OWN BASE should be a CRIME! I am sure everyone knows this crap happens everywhere, but FLW seems to have an infinite amount of the crap going on. To anon - how about SHOPPING as "something to do?" St. Roberts has a GD Walmart! Geez...The town sucks, the area sucks - and YES, there are tons of things to do in St. Louis - uh, how about the CARDINALS. Baseball, football...RESTAUrants - hell, St. Robert has that crappy Aussie steakhouse, a barbeque joint, and a couple of crappy fast food places. WHERE can you get a DECENT MEAL? At least 20 to 30 miles UP or DOWN THE ROAD, that's where? Like I said, there is nothing to do at that craphole. PERIOD. Been there, unfortunately, done that.
