Castillo, a former sergeant first class and recruiter at a Tucson Guard armory, said at his sentencing hearing. "Time will tell if, one day, I can get back in."  Castillo, 35, made two drug runs in 2002 in exchange for a $14,000 payoff from what he thought was a Mexican cartel.  But Castillo was actually snared by the FBI's Operation Lively Green, an undercover probe that netted dozens of military personnel and other public officials. At least 69 members of the military, prison guards, law enforcement employees and other public employees have been convicted of accepting bribes to help smuggle cocaine as a result of the probe. 2007/07/27--https //azdailysun com/news/local/former-soldiers-sent-to-prison-in-drug- case/article_2c2f3365-1df3-52d1-93d5-95a460dca6ddhtml Wisconsin Wisconsin/Army National Guard/3 different men one alleged female victim/2019 article, alleged rapes 2012-2018, alleged rape victim Megan Plunkett, a Wisconsin newspaper provided her story as part of a 4-part series on rapes 2019/05/07--https //madison com/ct/news/local/govt-and-politics/it-was-rape-wisconsin-army-national- guard-officer-megan-plunkett/article_9e4d3b84-85ed-5931-8141-373f41011170.html ROTC Wyoming Wyoming/University of Wyoming’s Army Reserve Officer’s Training/2018 article-several victims/rapes, sexual misconduct, some of it while victims are under the influence of substances like alcohol Wyoming Public Media 2018/03/09 2018/03/09--https //www wyomingpublicmedia org/post/survivors-want-uw-tighten-cracks-sexual- assault-response#stream/0 Updates  2020/05/15 numerous additions; 2020/05/14 the sections were re-organized; several articles added to Air Force section;  2020/05/09 Krause case added; 2020/05/08 the Gangs In Military/Graffiti material was moved from Notes to  here-War Zone/Military Rapes section;   2020/05/07 War Zone Military Rapes and Abuse section moved from River Gold to Police Factor; 2020/01/27 Defense-2012/04/29 and NY Times-2019/09/10 articles added;
