Another Sad day at Ft
Reached out to Deputy Garrison
Commander George Steuber at Ft. Benning back in 2016
but he refused to speak but did leave a voice
message that was odd. Wondered what his issue was
about Plumley then realized that it really had
nothing to do with Plumley but all to do with
Usually when someone gets that
bent out of shape and it isnít even about the person
in question the next logical step is to think that
maybe that person has something they donít want
Once again this was the case.
George Steuber was interviewed in 2009 by the
Bayonet Newspaper and gave what seemed to be a
very boring interview. It was great to be back at
Benning, first got there in 1966 where he received
his wings etc.
Steuber's records were ordered and low and
behold he was never at Ft. Benning as an enlisted
man according to all of the Army records. First of
all he had the wrong year for his enlistment. He
said 1966 but it was 1967 and it wasnít at Benning.
A FOIA request was made at Ft. Benning as well and
attached are the records for Steuber.
The following was requested in the FOIA;
Certificates/Documentations for George W. Steuber
for Parachute Badge showing when George Steuber
becoming a Paratrooper as an enlisted soldier. The
records that arrived from Ft. Benning and there were
no records for Steuber being at Benning in the 60s
receiving his jump wings.
There are no records at
all of him being at Ft. Benning in the 60s.
The December 29, 1967 issue for
the Bayonet on page 78 said that 22,692 Paratroopers
Graduated at Fort Benning, almost 2000 a month and
that the Airborne School has those records for those
who became a Paratrooper during that time period and
nowhere in all of the records was Steuber. Steuber
was asked for a copy of his Parachute Certificate
and he never responded to that request.
Steuber did become a
Paratrooper, but according to the records sent by
Ft. Benning it was in
Vietnam, not in the US. That is listed in the
FOIA request sent by Ft. Benning.
Steuberís basic training was at
Ft. Leonard Wood in Missouri not at Benning.
That tied in with another talk and interview he did
back in 2000 with the Sun Chronicle. Steuber
gave a talk at North Attleboro Massachusetts high
school talking to 17 year olds in a History Class
about his time in the Military. Steuber was still
on active duty.
In the talk to the young men at North Attleboro High
School Steuber told them that he his basic training
at Ft. Benning and that he had to fight black men
just to get to the latrine at Ft. Benning. Itís
sad when an active duty Lt. Col has to lie to
impressible 17 year-old students.
Steuber also told of his time
in Vietnam. I didnít bother going any deeper into
his background for obvious reasons. There was no
need to if someone has made up the basic things like
when and where they did their basic training and
calling out fellow black soldiers saying they
attacked him for trying to go to the bathroom.
Steuber works for the US Taxpayers at Ft. Benning as
an Assistant Garrison Commander and that says a lot
about Ft. Benning once again. 99.9% of the men and
women who became a Paratrooper look bad when people
like Plumley and Steuber besmirch their names.
