The QuanticoSentry reports:  Marine Corps National Capital Region courts-martial results.

Yuma Sun has this report on a Marine missing for 10 days, the subject of “an extended ground search in the northwest part of town during his absence.”

As part of his punishment, the Yuma Marine who went missing for 10 days last month has been reduced in rank, the Marine Corps said on Friday.

Army Times reports that:

Life in the 172nd Infantry Brigade, by most accounts, was hell when Col. Frank Zachar was in charge. Senior officers said Zachar threatened their careers and dressed them down when they could not follow his confusing guidance. Before a one-star general arrived to investigate the withering command climate, Zachar gathered his command staff to bully them into silence, several subordinates said. . . . .

Brig. Gen. Jimmie Jaye Wells, who conducted U.S. Army Europe’s investigation of the brigade, concluded in his report that Zachar “demonstrates arrogance, deception and threatening behavior,” and that the command climate was “at best ineffective, and at worst toxic.”
