17 National Guard Leaders in ONE company relieved.

More than a dozen leaders from a National Guard company deployed on a peacekeeping mission in Kosovo have been removed from the unit following an Army investigation into allegations about harsh tactics used to initiate junior troops, the commander of U.S. Army Europe said Thursday.

“The ones pulled out were all NCOs and officers. Right now, we have a total of 17,” Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling said in an interview with Stars and Stripes. “Some have committed more serious offenses than others.”

Holy crap! Who didn’t get relieved? So, a Company Commander, his officers, and his NCOs ignore the Army standard, and end up having their own private little set of rules.

Nice going, guys.

Notice that now, active duty platoons from Germany get to go on a no-notice deployment to fill in the leadership positions, and fulfill your obligations.

  1. But hey, attempt to murder someone from the Air Force and you’ll get put up for Admiral.

    All animals are equal, but some are more equal than other.

    1. Could be. Though I got the impression it was a more ongoing environment. I’ll try to keep an eye out for any investigation results posted.

  2. With the CO, XO, 3 Platoon leaders, Top, 3 Platoon Sgts, making 9, it had to have gone into the squad leaders too. The Company just got decapitated. That’s one company that simply needs to be sent home now. It’s going to be pretty useless.
