Discipline in high places

The Air Force Times has this revealing article about how the service dealt with misconduct by senior officers in 2012-13. In the past, information on this subject has been available on a hit-or-miss basis, but recent legislation, noted in the AFT article, adds a welcome measure of transparency. The services until now have enjoyed essentially unfettered discretion regarding whether to release disciplinary information that falls short of court-martial proceedings.

It's an age old question whether senior officer misconduct is punished less harshly than misconduct by other military personnel. Click on the photos in the article and see what you think about the outcomes.
