    More than likely he will be separated and deal with the civilian court case. Separations are usually lengthy processes, but I have seen them go faster than you can imagine. What can take 6 months can turn into 2 days if done right and hand walked through. He may voluntarily resign.

    Hard to understand this. It is so sad for everyone involved.

    How stupid. What a squandered opportunity. All the money his parents saved on college is now going to attorney fees.

    My first thought was what a complete waste. Then I thought about his parents. And then I thought that if it were my DS that did something like this, he wouldn't have to worry about what the police would do, because I'd get ahold of him first.

    I spoke with my cadet about this. Naturally the cadets are talking about this. Evidently the story makes the cadet look much worse than the situation warrents. There is a 'rest of the story'. A (so called) friend was involved and this 'friend' is still in custody while the cadet is not, so that tells you something right there.

    All that to say, it's not quite as bleak as it looks (thank goodness!) and I'm sure more details will be forthcoming.
