MILITARY FOOLS! 18-Year-Old St. Thomian Dupes Pentagon By Making Up The Names Of New Recruits And Pairing Them With Information Taken From The Department of Defense’s Own Database!

CHAOS CENTRAL: ROCK CITY: The Virgin Islands National Guard (VING) was shown in satellite imagery to be using U.S. military-supplied vehicles on St. Croix to loot businesses following Hurricane Hugo in 1989. Its Adjutant General was fired by the Department of Defense (DOD) for not properly prepositioning his troops prior to the Category 4 storm. Now a St. Thomas recruiter is accused today of continuing that tradition of lawlessness, disorganization and widespread theft after Pentagon investigators discovered irregularities in the number of people signing up as new VING recruits in the territory. The 18-year-old recruiter allegedly simply made up people out of thin air — in an effort to recoup huge financial bonuses for signing up these “phantoms” of his imagination that he put down in official military reports — using the DOD database to create false identities for these new “ghost” recruits — and laughing all the way to the bank afterwards.

CHARLOTTE AMALIE — The top Virgin Islands National Guard (VING) recruiter is in trouble with the Pentagon after being accused of stealing money and people’s identities, according to a report in the Washington Times.

Sgt. 1st Class Trevor Antoine is caught up in the Army Criminal Investigation Command’s nationwide probe into fake recruiting bonuses that stretched all the way to St. Thomas.

Antoine told the Washington Times that he was the top recruiter in the territory – sometimes signing up more than a dozen National Guardsmen a year.

His pleasant island existence was rocked when two CID agents got him into a room without an attorney and accused him of stealing government money and committing aggravated identity theft via the now-defunct National Guard Recruiting Assistance Program.

The 18-year soldier left the interrogation dazed.

“In my mind, I had not done anything, so I just went and talked to them freely,” Sgt. Antoine told The Washington Times. “I’m very disappointed. If I knew it would lead to this, I would not have taken part.”
