Late yesterday afternoon, this Examiner received a personal communication directly from Christopher Grey, Chief of Public Affairs from the Army’s Criminal Investigation Command at Quantico regarding missing Fort Bragg Soldier Pvt. Juliet Striped Wolf. The young female Soldier had been located in Volusia County, Florida, safe and unharmed.
Pvt. Juliet Striped Wolf failed to report for duty July 1st at Fort Bragg, N.C. Efforts by the Soldier’s mother to have her listed formally as a missing person by the Army and/or the Fayetteville Police supposedly fell on deaf ears for some six weeks. The reality of the situation revealed that Pvt. Striped Wolf was, in fact, listed by the Army as AWOL, away without official leave.
The AWOL Solider was thought to be with her “partner” Amanda Cardone who has family in Florida. According to authorities, Cardone has an extensive criminal background. While Striped Wolf’s mother insisted that her daughter was most likely in danger, the reality indicates that Striped Wolf had willing accompanied her lover to Florida.
While the Army typically doesn’t expend many resources finding AWOL Soldiers, they are always happy to find a Soldier “safe-n-sound”. The military is now making arrangements to transfer Striped Wolf back to Fort Bragg.
In part, the communique from CID:
The U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command would like to thank the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office and the Fayetteville, N.C. Police Department, as well as all the other law enforcement agencies who assisted with this investigation, for their professionalism and efforts to locate PVT Striped Wolf.
Army CID would also like to thank the XVIII Airborne Corps and the U.S. Army Special Operations Command for their assistance and cooperation during this investigation
It's likely that Pvt. Striped Wolf will face military charges in connection with her failure to report for duty.
For more information concerning Striped Wolf's future status and transfer to her base of record, please contact the U.S. Army Special Operations Command Public Affairs Office at 910-432-6005, Fort Bragg, North Carolina.
