Missing Millions

The Military Times website is reporting the indictment of an Army Major and his wife in federal court on charges of bribery, conspiracy, money laundering and obstruction, for taking bribes from Defense Department contractors in 2004 and 2005. The indictment claims they took at least $9.6 million in bribes while Cockerham was stationed in Kuwait and responsible for contracts for Defense Department services, including bottled water for soldiers in Kuwait and Iraq.
