This is hilarious. Those babies are now being worn by Mexican drug cartel soldiers now. Maybe it would help if the Army held another gay pride parade/drag queen dance show or investigated white rage.

Special agents from Fort Hood’s CID detachment are investigating the potential theft of “more than 100″ missing night-vision devices, III Corps officials confirmed to Army Times.

“Fort Hood is investigating missing Monocular Night Vision Devices from a maintenance facility at Fort Hood, Texas reported on July 12,” said Maj. Marion Nederhoed, a III Corps spokesperson. “Currently, the missing equipment has no immediate impact on unit readiness.”

Night-vision goggles are considered extremely sensitive items throughout the military, and units will often lock down their perimeter and organize massive search parties for even one missing device.

The shocking quantity of missing devices first came to light through a post by U.S. Army W.T.F. Moments, a popular Facebook page focusing on Army culture.

The post included a screenshot of a text message directing the measures the unit — which Fort Hood officials did not identify — would take to search for the devices.

“Yesterday ELM had 106x NVGs stolen from their secured storage facility,” said the text.

ELM likely refers to the unit’s electronics communications maintenance facility, where skilled soldiers repair unserviceable electronic devices — such as night-vision equipment.

  1. Oopsie, indeed. Just like the oopsie missing M4s, Beretta M9s and such that turn up in gang shootings, not to mention the CIA-funded arms shipments to ISIS via foreign arms dealer middlemen.

  2. And remember, if you are an uppity white goyim who dares put your feet up on the desk of the daughter of a literal Shabbos Goyim in “muh sacred hall of democracy” you go to jail for years.
    But stealing NVGs to give to terrorists who serve power = nothing to see here, move along goyim.

  3. More than likely a civilian employee. Every single time I was on the periphery of something where this kind of bulk theft happened, it was always some bright light midway up the GS ladder. Your average troopie does small-scale things, not having the sense to go big.

    Other answer might be that this is a paperwork drill, wherein they’ve screwed up accountability. I’ve seen that happen, as well–The records get munged up, and then it’s all “OMG… Where are the weapons?!?!?!?!”. Weeks later, red faces all around as someone has to go tell the commander that a file folder of maintenance turn-in documents was misplaced while people were transitioning jobs, and there really aren’t any lost weapons. You’d be amazed at the sheer stupidity of some of these people–You tell them, time and time again “Dude, that 2407 (form for manually turning in a weapon for maintenance) is the same thing as a rifle; safeguard that bastard like it was a real weapon…”. Then, dumbass leaves them on his desk in the supply room, someone cleans up for something, and the paperwork gets trashed. Or, they don’t close the loop on things–We had a situation wherein one of my subordinate units whose Arms Room I was responsible for overseeing had had weapons turned in over at 3rd Shop for about five years, and had been using the turn-in paperwork for accountability. What’s supposed to happen is that when you do a monthly serial number inventory, required by regulation, you show the inventorying officer the paperwork, and they’re supposed to go over to 3rd Shop and actually verify that the weapons are there. This unit wasn’t doing that, and hadn’t done it for the memory of anyone in the unit. So, when a change-of-command happened, the incoming commander who had been in a unit that did it right went over to see the weapons he was signing for…? Yeah; 3rd Shop didn’t have ’em. Cue mass fear and panic–This was about five M16s and an M60 that had been out of sight and mind for the unit for about three years at that point. Nobody over at 3rd Shop had a clue–There’d been some retirements and personnel turnover, so nobody had any personal memories, and their copies of the maintenance turn-in documents were long gone, purged annually. So, basically, there were six weapons out in the wind, so far as anyone could tell. CID came in, did their usual deal of ass-raping the current responsible parties, and ignored the fact that this was three years old, two commanders and three armorers ago. Even trying to find anyone who remembered what the hell had gone on was nearly impossible–One of the commanders was out of the Army, the other was in Bumfuck, Afghanistan, two of the armorers were out of the Army, and another had committed suicide over a chick.

    Took like three months for it all to come out, but what had happened was that all of the weapons had been coded out as unserviceable and sent off to be crushed at (I think…?) Rock Island Arsenal. It was only by the grace of God that someone thought to check the records there, and cleared the whole thing up. What had happened, apparently, was that the guy who was supposed to have closed the loop and gotten those weapons off the books for the unit had been going out the door, and he passed it on to his successor–Who did not understand what was going on, and who kept right on passing off the turn-in paperwork as “real” weapons. And, nobody ever bothered to go over and look at what was actually in maintenance, the way you’re supposed to do when you’re doing an inventory.

    End of the day, much egg on many faces, and a couple of careers were severely truncated. The outgoing commander was supposed to have been going on to much bigger and better things, but thanks to this little incident, he was kept at Fort Lewis while they figured it out, he missed his class seat and lost out on his next assignment, which had been a seriously plum one. He wound up getting out as a Captain, which was a big deal ‘cos he was from a military family, daddy was a four-star.

    All because some people took their paperwork a little too casually. You sign something in the Army saying that something like a weapon is there…? You had best be damn sure you actually saw the damn thing, yourself, and that you verified the serial number yourself. Period. Fail to do that, and you’re likely to end your career, and probably take out several other people on the way.
