I previously posted about this but here is a more detailed Navy Times report about CSM Crump, formerly of WRAMC.

A former command sergeant major at Walter Reed Army Medical Center fired for allegedly faking his record and wearing unauthorized awards and decorations faces military discipline for a series of bold deceptions that span several years and multiple commands, according to the charges against him.

World News Daily has a piece on LTC Lakin’s OER issue.  The piece seems to accept without question or fact-check the allegation that the, “Army convicted me without trial.”  It would seem a proper journalistic analysis would review the actual report (still publically unavailable) and review in comparison to AR 623-3 .

CNN reports that:

A top military official at Walter Reed Army Medical Center has been relieved of duty and charged with knowingly falsifying his personnel records.

Command Sgt. Maj. Stoney Crump, the senior enlisted officer for the Medical Center Brigade, had the “intent to deceive” when he submitted a false official record incorrectly stating that he had attended several military educational courses, according to the Army charge sheet.

1 June 2010: the Article 32, UCMJ, hearing ICO MAJ Nidal Malik Hasan is set to begin at Fort Hood.  MAJ Hasan is in pretrial confinement therefore the Article 10, UCMJ, speedy trial clock applies.

On 26 May 2010, Mr. Galligan, MAJ Hasan’s civilian counsel posted this on his blog.

Today is the deadline, imposed by the Article 32 Investigating Officer, for Army prosecutors to respond to long outstanding Hasan Defense Team discovery requests.  As of this posting – after COB at Fort Hood, Texas – no formal response from the prosecutors has been received.  And, as readers are aware, the initial Article 32 session is scheduled for just several days hence.

safeguardourconstitution reports that:  “Obama Administration unleashes Army lawyers instead of releasing birth certificate.”  This is shameful hyperbole and utterly incorrect.

LTC Lakin is alleged to have committed offenses in violation of the UCMJ.  The conduct alleged cuts to the very heart of military requirements of obedience to orders, fidelity to the oath of office, and the need for seniors to set the example.  I’m reliably informed that in addition to formal counselings every effort was made pre-preferral to convince LTC Lakin to obey his orders.  In the face of such contumacious behavior the Army had no choice but to prefer charges.  Enlisted personnel are regularly disciplined, court-martialed, and jailed for the same or similar conduct and who have better reasons for their AWOL.  Such a stunning lack of officership cannot pass unnoticed or undisciplined.  Neither President Obama nor his administration has any role in this case at all.  Should the administration try to get involved they should be told – politely – to butt out.

The military will formally discipline at least six officers, mostly from Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, for failing to take action against the officer accused of carrying out last year’s deadly shooting rampage at Fort Hood, according to people familiar with the matter.

In announcing the findings, Defense Secretary Robert Gates said he had directed Army Secretary John McHugh to take "appropriate action" against Maj. Hasan’s past supervisors. Mr. McHugh, in turn, appointed Gen. Ham to investigate whether specific officers should be punished for failing to raise the alarm about Maj. Hasan.

Wall Street Journal reports.

The military will formally discipline at least six officers, most from Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, for failing to take action against Fort Hood gunman Nidal Malik Hasan, according to people familiar with the matter.

Officials said the move reflects the military’s belief that the Nov. 5 assault could have been prevented if Hasan’s superiors had alerted authorities to his increasing Islamic radicalization.

Dallas News reports.  Judge Pohl has been scheduled to start the Article 32, UCMJ, hearing on 1 March.
