Eye In The Sky said:Are we still looking at this from the same perspective I wonder? I'm looking at it from the Admin/AR side and career consequences aspect, as the legal side has been determined.
I see your point EITS, I guess my beef is the AR Process has become politicized. OP HONOUR is 20% an exercise in Justice, 80% an exercise in Political Brinksmanship.
If a member wasn't sentenced to dismissal during a court martial, how can we then dismiss them administratively?
What's even the point of holding a trial and punishing someone found guilty if we are just going to turn around and administratively nail them no matter what?
If the military justice system; which is supposed to be independent of the chain of command and is supposedly the most serious form of disciplinary action a member can be subjected to, doesn't think a member should be dismissed, how can the CoC say "nah we know better" and go ahead and do it anyways?
Does that not seriously undermine the legal system itself?
