His Commanding Officer Made His Life Hell, so the Night Before He Left, He Executed a Cold and Clever Revenge that Ruined the Officer’s Career

A man recently went online to share the brilliant revenge that his soldier dad had taken on a bullying superior. Here’s how it happened.

He had a medical issue

“My dad found out he was super allergic to a shrub in central Texas after he was transferred out there,” the man began. “He was restricted to office work and prohibited from outdoor duties.”

He also had a toxic superior

“His commanding officer was a kind of hyper-warrior dude who detested soldiers who didn’t want to train 24/7.”

The man explained that this officer had developed an irrational hatred of his dad because he thought he was “milking” his allergy in order to avoid being a “real” soldier. He also seemed to resent that his dad was about to become a father for the first time (to the man’s older sister).

The bullying never stopped

The officer would take every opportunity to disparage the man’s dad. He would question his manhood and his commitment to defending the US Constitution.

There was ritual humiliation

It didn’t stop there. The officer would repeatedly humiliate the man’s dad in front of his comrades and higher-ranking staff.

If that wasn’t enough, he would also call him in the early hours of the morning, ordering him to come in for nonsense reasons.

Eventually, the man’s dad was ordered to leave active duty. The officer was also given some orders for an assignment that was an important part of his promotion prospects.

The man’s dad saw the opportunity for some much-needed vengeance.

He had unlimited access

His position as a company clerk meant the man’s dad had almost-unlimited access to personnel files and a set of office keys. The night before he was demobbed, he left himself back in the office after everyone else had left.

He mailed the officer’s records

This was the pre-digital era. The man got all of his officers’ files and orders and mailed them anonymously, without accompanying explanation, to as many random US Army mailrooms around the world as he could find.

It would cause chaos

The various packages would take weeks to reach their destinations, and even longer for the confused recipients to open them and then mail them back (assuming they even opened them).

The man’s dad left the army the next day with a clear conscience. A few months later, a sergeant friend updated him on what had happened: the whole unit had been away on a field exercise, so the missing files hadn’t been discovered for two weeks.

When the officer realized all his files were missing, he went ballistic, as it messed with the important assignment he was needed to complete.

Some of the officer’s vital records got lost in the system, and ultimately, his entire personnel record had to be started from scratch. The assignment was canceled, costing the officer his promotion.

The man’s father said it was a lesson that even “chairborne” soldiers can hurt you.

The internet responded

The internet loved the man’s story. “Never ever mess with the little guy,” said one. “One day you will regret it.”

“Officers like that are the first to run away from an actual firefight,” observed a veteran.
