The crash comes two days after U.S. Forces Japan issued a ban on all military personnel stationed on Okinawa and from consuming alcohol.

Effective immediately, U.S. service members on Okinawa are restricted to base and to their residences. Until further notice, alcohol consumption is prohibited. This includes in residences and public locations such as bars and clubs, and hotels. Additionally, U.S. service members on mainland Japan are prohibited from purchasing or consuming alcohol, on or off base.

The prohibition follows a Sunday morning accident in Naha, Okinawa, when a Marine driving with three times the legal limit crashed his truck into a vehicle driven by a local man, killing him.

Saturday, USS Benhold was struck by a drifting tugboat, which lost propulsion during a scheduled towing exercise nin Japan’s Sagami Bay.

Neither the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer nor the local commercial tugboat sustained serious damage and no one was injured.

The Navy reported that Benhold remains at sea under her own power.

After a serious of collisions and accidents, Pacific Fleet Commander Adm. Scott Swift Aug. 23 relieved Vice Adm. Joseph Aucoin of command of 7th Fleet, due to a loss of confidence in his ability to command.

When Aucoin was relieved the Navy was still recovering victims from a deadly Aug. 21 collision between USS McCain and the container ship Alnic MC.

Washington DC Democrat Government Poisons Michigan National Guard Troops With Uncooked Meals, Metal Shavings

Classic Washington.

Published

on

A whistleblower deployed with a detachment of the Michigan National Guard in Washington, DC has revealed that that his soldiers are being served with unsafe food by the government. The troops are present following the January 20th inauguration.

The staff sergeant revealed the travesty, speaking anonymously to Detroit’s WXYZ. The National Guard had contracted with the Washington DC city government to feed the troops, who were present to protect the city.

Yesterday, for instance, there were 74 different meals found with raw beef in them,” the sergeant said. “Just yesterday, the lunches were, soldiers had found metal shavings in their food.

The staff sergeant whistleblower revealed the raw meat had made more than a dozen service members sick with food poisoning, with one soldier even having to go to the hospital after eating the uncooked chicken.

The Michigan National Guard later confirmed that the troops were being effectively food-poisoned by the local government.

The MING personnel have since switched to eating MRE’s, or meals-ready-to-eat.

The uncooked food scandal represents the second act of disrespect to Guard members stationed around the Capitol. Pelosi’s House of Representatives had kicked out Guard members who were sleeping in a lobby room following a Democrat Congressman’s complaint that one wasn’t wearing a mask, forcing the troops to sleep in a parking lot on a night where temperatures were near freezing.

The Washington political establishment wishes to use military service members as political props to fearmonger a bogus imminent threat of “insurrection,” but the bastion of globalism can’t even provide edible food to the troops.
