There's something wrong with all of you and your priorities.

So they had fun with her reenlistment? Who cares? Shes willing to re-up, she chose to take the verbal oath (which really doesn't matter) in a joking fashion, and that's somehow a mortal sin for three careers? Were the documents signed by all parties? If so, it was legal.

Get out of here with the uptight bullshit.

LtCol Robert Quinter I find your focus on rituals rather than people entirely typical of senior officers and a contributing factor to the fact that we can't retain talent in the military. So good for you.

LT (Join to see) - Not going to argue with you, but tradition and all the "bullshit" are a large factor in the Corps and an insignificant contribution to the departure rate. You might want to pay a little more attention to those senior officers who were once young Lieutenants. The senior officers I worked with were very much focused on people, their dignity and welfare.

LtCol Robert Quinter so focused on people that they'll end multiple careers for a simple lack of decorum? Miss me with that mentality, thanks. Anyone who thinks this was justice isn't someone I'd want to serve with.

You are only getting one perspective of what transpired. More than likely there was more to this situation than what was released by the ones held accountable. Past behavior and judgement exhibited by the Senior Leader more than likely contributed to the decision that was made. My past experience with the Guard has been that you can make a mistake and still retain membership. I suspect there was a pattern of significant poor judgement in the past.
Lt you are a future Senior Leader. Speaking out in a public forum and criticizing leaders over a matter that you have no administrative oversight and contradicting them is a good way to negatively impact your career. Before you start screaming about free speech, speech isn't free. When you speak out on a subject, the price you pay is the reaction you receive. Consequences can be positive or negative.

So Navy can do it in a pool in floating ducks, guys can do it in storm trooper gear, but this crossed the line somehow.
