For five years, Clyde Drury III ran the Pierce County Veterans Bureau, in charge of an annual budget as high as $800,000 intended to help homeless veterans.

Since December, the former Air Force senior master sergeant insisted the government checks he was taking every month to a friend were going to help down-and-out vets.

Trouble was, people who checked on the spending couldn’t find the veterans.

All they could find were successive $6,000 checks sent to a business run by a close friend of Drury’s.

Drury was fired last weekfrom his $68,213 annual position after a county investigation concluded he misspent more than $36,000 collected by a special property tax earmarked for hire vetsveterans programs. He’s now the subject of a criminal investigation that could compel him to repay the money.
