This is a sad situation. If guilty I hope she seeks the help she needs. Senior Leaders are not immune to flaws in Character. There is however no excuse when these flaws present themselves. The military's Senior Leaders are in place to uphold the laws and regulations that ensure good order and discipline. I hope the Soldiers of this unit take the time to reflect on themselves as individuals and move forward with the mission and their lives. This is not a time to point fingers, gloat or ridicule.
Military gets a bad reputation for alcohol use and bad conduct-I get it, we all do. We need to make sure that all soldiers can get help WITHOUT being stigmatized or made to feel inferior;it takes a STRONG person to ask for help to beat their demons, but a WEAK person to make another afraid to get that help.
