Maybe, just maybe if they'd stop fucking people in the .mil for being single, this wouldn't be a problem.



Eight sailors charged with taking $35,000 for sham marriages

JACKSONVILLE, Florida (AP) -- Eight sailors were charged Tuesday with arranging sham marriages to Polish and Romanian women to help the women obtain U.S. citizenship and to collect bigger military housing allowances for themselves.

An investigation by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement found that none of the women lived with the sailors they married.

In all, the eight sailors received $35,000 in fraudulent basic housing allowance payments, investigators said. One sailor was allegedly getting $1,836 per month.

The Navy terminated the allowances in November. If convicted, the seven current and one former sailor from the USS Kennedy and USS Simpson could face up to five years in prison per count.

Basic housing allowance is a tax-free payment that active-duty members of the U.S. military receive to offset their housing costs if they do not live on base. The amount is based on location, marital status and the number of dependents.

One of the women, a Polish nanny, was also charged, and authorities were seeking seven other women, six of them Polish and one Romanian.

Each paid $6,000 for the weddings to the sailors so they could petition for U.S. citizenship, according to U.S. Attorney Paul Perez.

The NCIS investigation began last September when a Navy petty officer assigned to the Kennedy was approached by a seaman from the Simpson with the opportunity to receive a basic housing allowance for marrying a Polish woman.

The seaman who arranged the marriage was to receive $6,000 from the woman and the petty officer was to receive the basic housing allowance, officials said.

Five of the sailors appeared Tuesday in federal court in Jacksonville. They were released after each signed a $10,000 unsecured bond.

Four of them face charges of conspiracy to enter into a fraudulent marriage and conspiracy to present false claims to the government: Isaac Gordon Bell, 22, of Susanville, California; Joe Conn, 23, of Little Rock, Arkansas; Isidro Cruz III, 22, of Newark, New Jersey; and Horatio Alexander King, 34, of San Diego, California.

The other, Ryan Timothy Dodge, 22, of Joliet, Illinois, faces one charge of conspiracy to enter into a fraudulent marriage.

Former sailor Timothy Richard McNomee, 21, also appeared in court on the two charges, as did Monika Kubaczka, 27, who works as a nanny in Ponte Vedra Beach. The two were married last year but never lived together, officials said.

Two other sailors charged in the case are on deployment with the USS Simpson off the coast of Italy.

I spent 8 wonderful months in Hungary, we called the capital bootyfest. Nothing like a bunch of beautiful women that stick to traditional values and walk everywhere, thus leading to fantastic butts/legs. The national "uniform" of see-through sundresses and no bras isn't bad either.

Thats the same BS you hear about most non-American women. Some women will turn into the pear they have always wanted to be as soon as you slap that ring on them, but some won't. The ratio doesn't change from country to country. I knew a few Hungarians whose moms were plenty hittable, and thats pretty dang nice when the daughter is 25. I saw plenty of rough looking Asian women in the far east too, but a lot of super hot 30-40 year olds too.

It's simply an observation from my years on the road.

Sorry to admit that it is way past a Navy problem......I have been offered more than once and $$$$$$ but all it takes is someone to rat you out, it aint worth it.

Another interesting scam I've heard about the German Air Force running out by El Paso is where two military people (who receive huge housing allowances for rentals) each buy a house and rent to each other...

That must be something special about how the Germans do business. Because with the US .mil you get the same amount whether you own, rent, or live in a camper by the river.

My ex-wife said that when she was at Adak Island when she was in the Navy, nearly everyone got married for the bigger allowance and then divorced when they left the service.
