Dude, where's my drone? - Sierra Army Depot Truth

Dude, where's my drone?

As you know your humble correspondent is contact with well over 200 informants on the depot.   On June 24, 2014 9:44:07 PM local time, one of those informants confirmed with me that Sierra Army Depot lost a drone in 12/2012 thru 03/2013.

Sierra Army Depot's  Non-Standard Equipment (NSE) program receives millions of dollars ($ 115 million in 2011 alone) in equipment returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.  This inventory includes Night Vision goggles, Radios, Optics and Drones from soldiers overseas.

The loss of an Army drone on the Sierra Army Depot has never been disclosed to the general public until today.

The supervisor was Jason Tong.  Tong reports directly to Director Kathy Ayers.  Kathy Ayers reports directly Bruce Hamilton.  Merritt Shepard is supposed to monitor Kathy Ayers.  Bob Beach reports to retiring Bruce Hamilton.  Bruce Hamilton reports to LTC Slosson.  At the time of the loss it was LTC Dexter.  It is not known if the drone has been recovered or if LTC Slosson has taken action to punish those responsible for its custody.

Assisting in the cover up was Kathy Ayer's husband Lane Ayers who works at building 100 - Base Headquarters.  By the way, Jonathan Ayers, their son is a supervisor there.  He entered the depot 2 years ago as a lead.  His prior work experience was high school.  My informant also reports that the reason why LTC Dexter took a light touch with the rules is because they found pictures of fraternizing with SIAD staff off duty.

My informants live in fear of losing their livelihoods and reputations while supervisors and their families act with impunity using their license to steal.  Lieutenant Colonel Robert Charlie Slosson has yet to give Whistleblower Status to my informants.

Incidentally, the Sierra Army Depot is home for the F-22 Raptor.

Sierra Army Depot has never investigated the incident.  A supervisor on the depot has never been fired for mismanagement, fraud, theft or embezzlement.
