LC — The Weird Duck
A senior NCO is critically short-handed on a deployment when he notices a Soldier behaving oddly. Is this just a quirk? Or something more?
follow-through on punitive actions
What’s the Situation?
- An Army air traffic control unit gets a new team member right before deployment that doesn’t seem to mesh well with the team.
- The unit is understrength when it deploys to Iraq and then has to cover an extra facility.
- The new team member’s eccentric behavior bothers his co-workers and his command. The behavior becomes more volatile and eccentric.
- The command refers the new team member to mental health care multiple times. Each time, the mental health facility certifies him as fit for duty.
