Ex-Fort Hood Solider Accused Of Stealing And Selling Military Equipment
By John Elizondo
FORT KNOX - A former Fort Hood soldier is accused of selling military property. Staff Sgt. Hunter Perry, who is now stationed in Fort Knox, Kentucky, faces a court-martial this week at the Army installation for selling a tactical body vest, small arms protective insert plates and plate carriers while he was assigned to Fort Hood in 2008 and 2009.
Hunter denies selling plates, but said he bought them legally online. He said military surplus stores and dealers online sell the same type of body armor that he purchased and resold.
He calls the charges unfair and says that just because he sells military-like equipment doesn't mean he stole it.
