  •  Command Sargeant Major (4+ / 0-)

    I'm retired military and my immediate thought was whether this soldier has contacted his Command Sargeant Major.  As the Senior Enlisted at his base this individual can help get the soldiers dispute up past the individual who is causing the problem and heard by the Base Commander.  It doesn't always result in justice or a solution in the way the soldier wants but at least it gets heard up the chain the command.

    The only problem is you have to request permission from your command to speak with the CSM and sometimes that creates more problems for the soldier.  But from the sounds of it the situation has reached critical mass so if he hasn't spoken to the CSM I would suggest he does immediately.

    Just a thought and regardless I hope things work out for this soldier and his family.

      When dealing with PTSD, the less asked of the affected soldier the better.  He/she needs no more stress than currently experiencing.  Thanks, though.  The CSM route is very important for non-mental-stress related problems.
