Yet another creepy colonel in the National Guard...

A few years ago, I wrote about a colonel Bill had the misfortune of going to war with in 2007.  This guy was a total narcissist and he put Bill through hell.  In 2010, he went to Iraq again, this time with a brigade.  He proceeded to abuse many more people and was eventually outed as the abusive leader he was.  He ended up having to leave the Army as a colonel instead of the general he was slated to be.

Last night, I found out about yet another colonel Bill used to work with.  I'm not sure if I ever met this guy.  I might have, back in the days when we lived in northern Virginia.  He had a pretty good reputation and wasn't known to be abusive to people who worked for and with him.  However, he apparently has a pretty serious "zipper problem" that led to him abusing his mistress.

Apparently, between 2009 and 2011 Colonel Jeffrey Pounding was carrying on a sexual relationship with a woman to whom he was not married.  They allegedly had a lengthy affair, which in and of itself wasn't a good thing.  What made it worse is that Pounding is HIV positive and he neglected to tell his mistress about his disease.  They did not use protection.  Pounding's lover eventually found out about his HIV status from a public health worker.  She has been since tested for HIV twice and has so far come up negative for the disease.    

Pounding may very well end up behind bars for his misdeeds.  If this story is true, I think he should be seriously punished for exposing this woman to HIV, even though she probably knew he was married.

Bill worked with this man and told me that he never would have guessed he was capable of such a thing.  Apparently, Pounding is a psychologist by training and has several daughters.  I wonder how he'd feel if some guy treated one of his daughters the way he treated his mistress.

It'll be interesting to see how this case ends.
