Re: Awards and Decs
Always a case by case situation. Timing is key, if the one incident happened early in tour, member has had time to demonstrate that it was a one-off. Same incident happens two months prior to PCS...it's aw$hit time.
You will always face a battle, fighting for your Airmen. And as Class5Kayaker demonstrated, sometimes you win. When you do fight for your people, you do run the risk of them stepping on their wanger a second time, now your reputation is $hit. But, that is what being a good supervisor is all about, trying to do the best thing for your Airmen.
