Allowed to quietly retire? I'm not one to throw the BS flag without cause, but this is BS! It's good to be the King.........I mean, Colonel.

Ever heard of: "Rank Has Its Privileges"
In my military career I have seen numerous lower enlisted SM have their life and careers ruined because of an accusation. Then turn right around and see Senior NCO's, Officers, and Cmd Staff, violate the "Sharp Policy" like no tomorrow.
On one of my deployments I knew of a lower enlisted female who was single that was having sexual intercourse with a Warrant who was married.
She ended up pregnant. She was reprimanded and sent back to the states. He was just slapped on the hand and told they issued rifle covers by the hand full at the TMC and got to finish out his tour. She had an abortion and was promoted and got to stay in until her ETS.

Now, go figure this one out. Because, we are all told about and warned about and have too sign a statement of agreement that we would abide all regulations and SOP's during our deployments to include sexual activities especially those who were married. That it was a career killer.

All talk nothing happened except to certain individuals.

Double Standard Todays Military.

I was at a sq. event once, with an open bar of course, and just about everyone was trashed. Our commander, chief, and first sgt were all so trashed they were crawling around on the floor. At the end of the night, everyone got in their cars and went home. The commander was seen crawling through their parking lot to their car, and then climbing into the driver seat. (I had left long before this so wasn't there to stop it) One of the lower enlisted members got a DUI on the way home. The commander of course decided to make an "example" of this enlisted member, who ended up being discharged.

Needless to say, because of things like this, I no longer attend sq. events, period. When you watch your leadership do things like this, it tends to leave a lasting negative impression towards leadership in general. I have been in a few units since then, and have leadership who I know would set the example and do things the right way, however still refuse to attend any events just to cover my own backside.
