    And the funny thing is it won't keep him from deploying for more than the time it takes for the stitches to come out.

    He did his squad members a favor. I'd just general discharge him and be done with it... asshat.

    Why not give him a DD and call it a day. He signed the papers knowing what could happen. Is there anything in the UCMJ that he violated by doing this?

    I'm sure there's something like conduct unbecoming that would fit.

    Those would be all the articles that could be posted in some way towards the moron, some are more appropriate than others.

    Conduct unbecoming only applies to commissioned personnel.

    So our enlisted don't have any standards for behavior? :shock:

    Isn't Malingering a subset of 908 ART 108 (Damage of military property)?

    DD's are very rarely given, that's why I just said GD. I think a GD requires fewer legal hurdles, and it gets this coward out of my Army as soon as possible.

    Yep, I called him a coward. Everyone is afraid, it's how you handle that fear that separates cowards from heroes.

    I might be wrong, but I think that an "under other than honorable" discharge is administratively given.

    Bad Conduct (BCD) and Dishonorable (DD) can only be given as punishment from a court-martial.
