    I thank you for your prayers.
    My son who just completed his third tour in the "Rockies" is back in the states. His unit returned without 5 paratroopers.
    When he got back to Fort Bragg, he discovered that his car had been stolen. What low life would do this thing? This happened on board a military installation.
    This really breaks my heart. If I could get my hands on this )*)&^bag.

    Good to hear your son is safely back. Who would do such a thing as steal a car from on base? The same low lifes that were in my Navy in '68-'72. Every branch has them...you know that. Best of luck to your son.

    I'm glad to hear him back safe and sound. Bummer about the car though. I'm rather surprised that his unit didn't round up the vehicles for safekeeping.

    We had the same issue in the 80's many times traced back to civilian contractors either directly or through incompetence. Your son stand far above the types that would do this.

    Usually a unit will gather up all cars and put them in a fenced in area or something. Oftentimes they will park them tightly together which would make any car in the center impossible to get otu. At least thats what we did when I was in and that's only been a couple years ago.

    The person who"jacked" my son's car had access to Fort Bragg, could be a civilian sponsored by another soldier looking to steal a car or another soldier who thought that he needed that car more than my son.
    I just hope that car is put to good use (family car etc) and not just for sh()(*& and giggles.

    God bless your son for a safe return home; sorry to hear about the car; as an MP, I've had to deal with many reports like that; more than likely, the car was stolen for a joyride or stripped for parts, most likely then sold on eBay. :(

    Buncha Bloody Muckers!

    Well, he's home and hopefully with lots of cash in his wallet to get a new car.
