AL-based company named in military recruiting fraud case
Docupak is the Alabama-based company that was contracted to run the Pentagon's program.
HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
An investigation into a military recruiting
fraud scheme involves an Alabama-based company, hundreds of officers and at
least a couple of generals. It revolves around $92 million in bonuses for
recruiting assistance programs.
The campaign started in 2005, at the height
of the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. The bonus money was not supposed to go to
military recruiters, but an ongoing investigation shows more than 1,700
recruiters signed up friends as "recruiting assistants" who would get the bonus
and then split it with the recruiter.
Docupak is the Alabama-based company that was
contracted to run the Pentagon's program. A published report says the company
did not report the potential fraud.
Officials said they may not wrap up the
investigation until 2016 because of the potential number of cases.
