PatsChick87 (Marty)- Did you get the PM I sent you?

All- here are some more news updates on the Dragons:

Cpl Dorsey was named our Soldier of the Year for 2006, and now he's making an impression on journalists. Great kid who represents our brigade well.

http://www.csmonitor.com/2007/0327/p01s04-woiq.html

And, how about this for quality Army doctors? This young Iraqi boy is VERY lucky to be alive! This particular story was written by PFC Nathan Smith- the Dragon Brigade's own beat reporter and newshound, and got picked up by AP, Army Times and several other big papers nationwide. A remarkable story and now, a 4-year-old has a future because he got prompt and skilled medical attention.

And, SFC Timmons is my section sergeant and veteran. This is a good piece on the Doura Market, which on Dec. 23 was all but deserted thanks to Shia and Sunni death squads and gangs (with an average of 5 bodies found due to murders in the market area each day). 1 shop was open, now we're up to 135 open for business, with the last body being found in the area on Dec. 24.

I thought our men and women serving overseas would find this of interest.

...and the winner of the "Traitorous Business of the year" award goes to...

ITT fined $100 million for illegal exports

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The leading manufacturer of night vision gear for the Defense Department has admitted sending classified materials overseas and will pay a $100 million penalty, according to federal prosecutors, who say the actions of ITT Corp. have jeopardized the security of U.S. soldiers.

ITT, based in Roanoke, Va., exported classified or sensitive technical data to China, Singapore and Britain without having obtained authorization from the United States, prosecutors said.

The conviction is the first involving a major defense contractor violating the Arms Export Control Act, prosecutors said.

Saying that American soldiers are "the principal victims of ITT's crimes," U.S. Attorney John Brownlee said he has structured the $100 million penalty so that half of the money is spent by ITT to develop a next-generation night vision system and "ensure that our soldiers have the best night vision equipment in the world."

ITT must invest the $50 million over five years to accelerate development of night vision technology, and the government will maintain rights to all technology that is developed under the agreement.

The arrangement will also allow the government to share any technology developed by ITT under the agreement with ITT's competitors, Brownlee said.

Prosecutors said the probe began Aug. 1, 2001, when Defense Department investigators discovered that ITT night vision employees sent a classified military document to Britain.

The company engaged in a "regular pattern of export violations and misrepresentation" to the U.S. government from 1980 to 2005, prosecutors said.

In some cases, information was transferred because the manufacture of laser gear could be done cheaper overseas.

ITT "went to significant lengths to set up an end run" around State Department licensing systems, prosecutors said, including enlisting a front company to export the systems.

The company also fought the government's investigation, Brownlee said, and attempted "to essentially run out the clock on the statute of limitations." He said the company's posture changed in 2005 with the hiring of a new CEO, Steven Loranger, who hired new outside corporate attorneys and instructed the company to cooperate with the investigation.

ITT Corp., whose competitors include Lockheed Martin (up $0.08 to $98.50, Charts) and United Technologies (down $0.34 to $66.07, Charts), has agreed to plead guilty to a count of violating the Arms Export Control Act by illegally sending classified and/or export-controlled information relating to night vision materials to foreign countries. It also will plead guilty to a count of knowingly or willfully omitting material facts from required reports with intent to obstruct a State Department investigation.

As part of the $100 million penalty, ITT will pay a $2 million criminal fine and a $50 million deferred prosecution penalty - to be invested in night vision technology - and will forfeit $28 million to the U.S. government as the proceeds of its illegal actions. ITT will also pay a $20 million penalty to the State Department.

Shares of ITT (down $0.28 to $60.91, Charts) edged lower during afternoon trading on the New York Stock Exchange.

Jesus...

You just don't hear all that much about things like this in the MSM (mainstream media).

I knew that the investigation was ongoing, but it is disheartening that corporate greed and whatever idealism that may have prompted a few traitors to sell us out like that happens on a scale like this one.

MARTY!!!!

I got your box today.

Thank you SO MUCH!

People have been so good to me on this deployment- it is so humbling to see the kinds of folks who are really behind us.

One family donated hockey nets and gear so we can establish the FFHL (FOB Falcon Hockey League) and I've gotten a lot of care boxes.

But PatsChick87 and Stan were some of my original supporters when I was here the last time.

So- love ya guys, and thanks so much.

Here's another link (my broadcaster and print journalist hard at work, letting the good folks know what we're up to over here):

As long as our Pats don't get worn down going to China, I'm cool.
