Who urinated in her boots? A mystery at a California military base brings cover-up claims

For Staff Sgt. Jennifer Pineda, a 15-year veteran of the California Air National Guard, the military was a family calling. She followed her older sister and brother-in-law into the guard, where she now holds an administrative position at the elite 144th Fighter Wing in Fresno.

On a March morning four years ago, Pineda was about to dress into a uniform she had stored overnight in a stall in the women’s bathroom when she made a foul discovery. Someone had urinated in her boots.

The incident left Pineda humiliated and frightened and would trigger a series of behind-the-scenes investigations whose scope has come to extend beyond what happened that day at the Fresno base.

The defiling of Pineda’s boots has led to allegations that high-ranking officers tried to bury the incident, including by destroying evidence that could have potentially identified a suspect through DNA, and retaliated against a male pilot who supported her efforts to find the perpetrator, according to interviews and guard records obtained by The Times. Some in the wing have begun calling the ongoing saga “Pissgate.”............

Thought pissing in boots was a well know technique for softening the leather

That's not so bad. I once arrived at a hotel for an overnight stop and went to make a cup of tea, only to find that someone had pi$$ed in the kettle!

I only discovered it after I'd boiled it....it really stank. After that I never use the kettle in a hotel unless I've rinsed it out really well!

Sounds more like the sort of thing that would happen in the Navy (the Phantom Sh*tter and all that..)

A real (very old) funny story on this "piss-matter" from the Russian campus...

Once a transport aircraft had to land somewhere on the route because of a terrible weather at the destination point. The crew was told that they would stay there for more than a day. As there was nothing to do in the middle of nowhere they started consuming spirits, until losing conscious. In the middle of the night one of the crew (yet in somnambulate state) decided to go to toilet but opened a wardrobe in the darkness and just pissed somewhere down, into the co-pilot's shoes.

No doubt, there was some fought in the morning and both guys were finally left quite angry at each other. After the plane returned to the base the pilot submitted an official report to the station commander applying that because of "psychological incompatibility" in his crew he needs substitutions to be made.

The commander's written resolution was fascinating, smth like (his original language was more offensive than the one that follows): "F.. your psychology and you all, I have no time and staff to deal with such childish issues. Let X piss into the Y's shoes in return and get the problem closed" .

I don't understand why people feel the need to post these stories? What do they bring to the forum.

Happened years ago in Aden one of our crew had a spare bed in the room. Someone, not on our sqn, did exactly that.

This behaviour is disgusting! I think more modern risk management techniques should be used to deal with such inappropriate behaviour.

I see the Irish have already aquired the film rights and are working on the title as we speak.

A Van, I applaud your Russian commander's pragmatic solution!

I recall reading some book describing escapees from a German PoW camp who had made it close to the border with the Baltic and were holed up in a small hotel. Outside one bedroom door was a pair of highly polished jackboots...

...which were then treated to the contents of their brimming chamber pot as they hurriedly left.

In times past rig workers on the N Sea were issued with an immersion suit for the helo trip out to their rig.
These paragons would fall out the dockside bars of Footdee at 0500 and taxi to Dyce where they would struggle into their immersion suits and zizz off in the helo. On longer trips the inevitable often happened and with no other option many arived onboard in a swampy condition.
As if this wasn't bad enough these were suits were not personal issue but pool items which they had to hand over to one of the offgoing crew they were replacing. There were no spares...if you wanted to go on leave there was no option...
