It is my understanding that as an Officer, it is both a violation of military code and unethical to date those under your command or enlisted personnel. It creates a conflict of interest, and potentially can cause serious problems. That being said, I understand that being a Cadet isn't the same as being in the real Army. However, it seems inappropriate for a Cadet Lieutenant to be dating a MS-1 Cadet Private directly under her command, and also taking him as a date to the military ball. He is an outstanding cadet and a PT stud, and I have great respect for both of them, though I can't understand why someone so close to commissioning would behave in such a manner. Who's to say this won't become a habit for them when they enter the Real Army. Where does the line get drawn? Am I the only one bothered by this? I have long abided by the rule of never dating through the workplace, let alone as an Officer who is expected to lead honorably by example. Why should it be any different in Cadet land?
