This is not the first time I know of a female flight student drummed out of D Co based only on rumors from fellow students who did not like her. Is it a trend? Maybe. I hope it gets looked at, at least, because careers and lives have been ruined on simple hearsay.
She makes an excellent point about GOMORs at the end of her video. Since they are administrative and non-judicial, they can be issued scary easy, and if they are filed permanently they are career enders. i don't think going away from GOMORs completely is the answer, I think the power to formally reprimand an officer should remain, especially when there is no ability to UCMJ. However, a permanently filed GOMOR should fall under UCMJ, since it carries the same weight and consequence as UCMJ action.
Things like this is why I was a hermit as a WO1 in flight school. I was friendly with my classmates but largely kept them out of my social life. There are too many examples of students losing their career over something they wouldn't even get counseled for in the real army. The CG at the time I went through had a hard on for kicking out flight students, and he wielded his GOMOR signing pen openly. It didn't matter if you were guilty or innocent, if you did something he simply didnt like, you were gone. His liberal use of the GOMOR definitely got rid of a few dirtbags, but in the collateral damage several excellent officers and pilots were lost. The same issues she described existed at that time. D CO used SMO as investigative officers, hearsay statements were admitted as evidence against the accused, members of the chain of command would make sexist and derogatory comments, and the legal office was unable to assist students, as were the legal offices of Benning. The removal of evidence, the unwillingness of command to speak to soldiers regarding the issue, and the lack of awareness by BN and BDE regarding the issue is something I have not seen.
Also new to me was the suggestion that a relationship with a stick buddy could be characterized as inappropriate, and I agree with her rationalization at the end that even if she had a relationship with him, it would not violate the Army's policy on fraternization. In fact, if relationships with stick buddies and fellow flight students were grounds for removal, half of the people I knew in flight school should have been kicked out. I know of half a dozen that got married to a flight student.
I am going to keep an eye on this, because I want to know the outcome. D CO has been dirty for a long time, and I am glad the "Spotlight" and "Limelight" is finally on them.
