This story brings to mind a bit of history involving another embarrassment to America’s finest fighting force.
Anyone remember Sgt. Clayton Lonetree, USMC?
He was a Marine Security Guard in, I believe, Leningrad or maybe Stalingrad about the mid 1970’s. He and a couple of other Marines got a little too close to a couple of nice Russian girls, one of whom had an Uncle Sascha who just happened to work for the KGB. The girls persuaded the lonely young Marines to let them in the Marine House and Lonetree eventually started providing classifed docs to Uncle Sascha’s niece who provided it to Uncle Sascha.
He’s probably out of Leavenworth by now.

Just did some quick research. It was 1985 and Moscow. I misspelled Sascha. It is Sasha. Lonetree was released 2/26/96. Hey, I was only off 1 decade. Sorry, I should have done my due diligence before I posted above. That said, I still am impressed that I was able to remember that much from so long ago.
This case seems more like that of one Clayton Hartwig, USN.
