Since there is no jail at the Army post,
This is a lie! One of my Soldiers spent several days in the “non-existent” jail when he was arrested while I was stationed there.
Noodle Needle is such a candidate for a good old fashioned fragging that he probably couldn’t be kept on post. But the scurvy SOB’s could just say that instead of lying about the lack of a jail. Every major base and even large ships have some sort of brig and to lie about that is re-inventing stupid.
