Victory Forge Military Academy is the same as Southeastern Military Academy

In December 2009, Weierman decided to change the name for Victory Forge to Southeastern Military Academy. Nothing about the school has changed, except the name. Even their website is the same (save for a new URL).

Always knew he was lying

Like this comes as a surprise to anybody, but Alan tells everybody (and states publically) that he has a PhD is specialized business - whatever that is.

Well, a sleuth has dug up the following:

His LinkedIn page says he has a PhD in "Business Administration, Counseling, Psychology" from Southeastern Louisiana University. Combined PhDs are rare, and this one strikes me as particularly bizarre. Also, Southeastern Louisiana University does not have a doctoral program in psychology, they have an MA program only. The same goes for their Business program; no doctoral level programs, only two Masters level programs. So his credentials look sketchy at best. After some Google searching there appear to be questions about his military record as well.

You think he is lying? Isn't this what he has been doing for all his life?

Blast from the Past - Here is another one

This story is from 2002. See how familiar it is to what happened in 2008 and keeps happening at this place. Should this not be enough to convince parents about how bad this place is??

MEMO: Ran all editions.
About a year after Victory Children's Home surrendered its state license while under fire from state welfare officials for violating rules for caring for children, youths staying at the home for abused and troubled teens accused their caretakers of abusing them, according to a police report.
Some of the 15 children now staying at the home at 602 S.W. Biltmore St. told police Friday "they had been struck with metal pipes and a wooden paddle as methods of punishment. . . . Shackles were used if children attempted or had 'thoughts' of running away from the home." The home's president, Alan Weierman, and several members of the board of directors could not be reached for comment Monday. No charges have been filed, but police and the Department of Children and Families are investigating the allegations.
When a DCF investigator tried to look into the allegations on Friday, staff members would not allow her to go inside, despite a court order allowing the agency to enter the home and interview the children, according to the police report.
Weierman eventually allowed the investigator to question youth at the home but only under conditions the DCF investigator found unacceptable. So police took all 15 children to the police station, questioned them, then released them to their parents. More than one youth made the accusation, police spokesman Chuck Johnson said.
Victory Children's Home works with children of all ages up to 17 who have behavior problems that are the result of abuse, neglect and drug and alcohol addiction. It also hosts a residential boot camp-like program that, according to its Web site, will push boys' bodies to their limits. Boys spend hours in the home's physical training area. They may not call home for the first two weeks after joining the program.
"Your son may complain to you about unbearable pain, crying that it's too hard. DON'T BE FOOLED!" the site states. Photographs on the site show young men wearing fatigues crawling in the sand and crossing shallow water walking on narrow logs.
"You've come to the right place for help for your daughter or son," writes Weierman in a message to people thinking about using Victory Children's Home. "Our professional staff work hard to insure that your confidence in us is never betrayed and I personally pledge the very best therapeutic care available. You will find our methods unconventional and unorthodox. Our expectations are very high, but I know that you will be very pleased with the progress you see in your child over the course of their stay with us."
Although the state no longer licenses the home, the Web site states it is a member of the Florida Association of Christian Child Caring Agencies, National Association of Christian Child Care Agencies and the Florida Coalition for Children. The Department of Children and Families no longer refers children to the home, spokeswoman Betty Robinson said.
Victory Children's Home opened in Fort Pierce in 1984, then moved to Port St. Lucie in 1993. Weierman has been president since 1987.
In a 2000 complaint, DCF wrote that that Victory officials left a 17-year-old alone in the parking lot at another children's shelter run by the Children's Home Society. Another alleged violation involved allowing an 11-year-old with a history of sexual offenses to share a bedroom with another child. The home surrendered its license without a hearing about six months after the complaint was filed and as the license was set to be revoked.


People may want to head over to Wikipedia and see the warring going on between Weirman and the editors at Wikipedia. Apparently, Alan is using the same accusatory and whiny tactics he has used on the police and the regulators to force Wikipedia to change their story on this child abusing facility. What Alan is incapable on understanding is that in this new digital age, his rants will not work. So to stop his cry baby tactics, he has been warned that any additional warring or defacing the Victory Forge article will get his IP blocked forever. Since that threat, Alan has been a good little boy and has stayed away (and has asked Molly) to stay away from Wikipedia as well.

So now if you want to hear the truth, head over to Wikipedia.

Moral and Ethic - Not

Here is an interesting twist on the story we have been communicating to everybody. Apparently Molly and Alan and their kids have been telling the world that Southeastern Military Academy is not the same as Victory Forge. They have even been vocal and threatening towards Wikipedia and their editors since all evidence and information points towards the facts that SEMA and VF are one and the same place. Yet Al has decided to twist the truth (see a common theme here - he does that all the time) and claim that SEMA is not VF. He claims that this is one of the top boarding schools in the country, yet this is not the case. He claims to help parents and students, yet this is not the case.

So Al, you claim to teach the students moral and ethics. Don't you think you should try following it yourself first?

Another Blast from the Past

Very interesting newspaper story published by the Akron Beacon Journal on 3/11/1992. This story shows a pattern of abuse and then hiding it that continues to this day. Reader of this blog will see similarities between this 1992 case and the ones that have been occurring at Victory Forge. Now don't you think that if this abusive and manipulative behaviour has been allegedly occurring for 17+ years, there has to be some truth in it?

Stark County officials were unaware of complaints of sexual abuse brought nearly six years ago by a 16-year-old Summit County girl living at the Brinkhaven Homes for Youth because the homes' officials failed to alert authorities. Such notification is required by Ohio law.

The allegations were investigated by local police in August 1986, about two months after the girl left Brinkhaven and her relatives complained to Summit County Children Services, said Lawrence Township Police Chief Roy E. Mosely II.

The girl charged that she had sex with Alan Weierman, a Brinkhaven staff member, more than 30 times between August 1985 and June 1986, when she returned home, according to Lawrence Township police reports. Weierman is the son-in-law of Brinkhaven's founder, the Rev. William Brink, who is being investigated by a county grand jury because of allegations that he sexually abused two former residents. Weierman denied the allegations during the 1986 investigation. He could not be reached to comment Tuesday, in Fort Pierce, Fla., where he is director of Brinkhaven's home for unwanted children.

Mosely said his investigation found `sufficient probable cause' to prosecute Weierman, including a polygraph test given the girl and a calendar she kept of the alleged sexual encounters. However, no charges were filed because Massillon chief city prosecutor John Simpson indicated there was not enough evidence to corroborate the girl's allegations.

William Brink told police the charges were groundless, saying the girl admitted to fantasizing about Weierman in March, when she was questioned after talking to other residents, Mosely said. Brink also produced letters from residents stating the girl `had made the incident up.'

But another difficulty the investigation encountered was `the length of time that had elapsed' between the girl's departure from Brinkhaven and when police were called in, Mosely said in an Oct. 7, 1986, letter explaining to Summit County Children Services officials why the prosecutor was not filing charges.

That time gap would not have existed, according to Stark County Human Services officials, if Brinkhaven officials, instead of her family, had reported the allegations to authorities.

Judee Genetin, chief legal counsel for the department, said Ohio law requires all child care facilities to report `any suspicions' of abuse or neglect immediately. Genetin also questioned why Brinkhaven officials had questioned the girl and other residents about the allegations. `They're not supposed to investigate the allegations,' she said. `We do that.' Program director Ronald Lewis said the county would have been very interested in learning about the allegations in 1986 because officials already were very concerned about the number of complaints of excessive discipline and other problems at Brinkhaven during the mid-1980s.

Jon Weierman Part 2

We have talked about Jon Weierman before. He is one of the son's of Al Weierman and is an instructor at VF. Allegedly, most of the former students we have interviewed have claimed that Jon was the source of a lot of the abuse going on in the school. He supposedly has a very violent disposition and since his Dear Dad runs the school, Jon abuses his status over there. A few former employees also had the same thing to say about this disturbed man. In psychological terms, Jon is very insecure and is on a power trip. Also, it has come to our attention (and this needs to be further investigated), but Jon was also a burnout and a former drug addict. If that behavior is still going on, that would be cause to remove him from the services of VF. We are looking into these allegations and will update as we get more information. Anybody with additional information on this man, get back to us.

Jon, we are watching you.
