I think it was pretty stupid ... but think the internet outrage was a bit much too. I have seen infantrymen reenlist in a bar while chugging beer at the end of every sentence, folks reenlist at the top of the rope on the O'Course, and one reenlistement in a ... dance club.

This got a lot of traction on Tak's Facebook page, and I find irony in the "Morale in the military is lower than ever" crowd calling for the public career ending action of the folks who did this.

Doesn't look like it:

-Col basically directed to retire. Retired as a LtCol (less than 3yrs TIG).
-MSgt (E7) has had her reenlistment voided and now will separate at EAOS.
-1stSgt 'voluntarily' resigned from his 1stSgt billet, remains on duty with the TN ANG.
