Yesterday, Project on Government Oversight (POGO) announced an article:
“Victory! House Whistleblower Bill Sails out of Committee with Unanimous Bipartisan Support”
The article further stated that members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform unanimously passed the “Platts-Van Hollen Whistleblower Protection Act of 2011” (WPEA).
Unfortunately the new reform fails to provide better whistleblower protection to active duty military whistle blowers.
One fellow military whistle blower quoted, “You will be committing suicide if you file a complaint with the DoD IG”.
As a victim of negligence on the part of DoD IG, I’m now a disabled vet who is suffering from an incurable blood disorder caused by “Stress”, and have to take daily dosage of chemotherapy medication (for the rest of my life) in an effort to control the symptoms of my condition.
By no means am I encouraging anyone to turn the blind eye to corruption. Of course not!
If you are a military veteran who witness corruption and you have actual proof, contact either: POGO, the FBI or an attorney who represents whistle blowers.
If you witness fraud against the government being committed by a defense contracting company, you can file a “False Claims Act” lawsuit on behalf of the federal government. If the Dept. of Justice investigates the company and they are found guilty, you can be rewarded thousands or millions of dollars.
Food for thought:
If members of your command or unit are also engaged in such illegal activity, you can still report the complaint to the FBI or POGO.
WARNING… Once you report the complaint up your chain of command or to DoD IG, be prepared to be retaliated against.
