Court-Martial Weighed in Iraq Discipline Cases

MG Richard Nash now has to decide if SSG Bob Clements and SGT Enoch Chatman should face a court-martial for maltreatment of soldiers, including one soldier who committed suicide just four days after joining Clements' and Chatman's unit in Iraq. See October 7th post on PVT Keiffer P. Wilhelm.

The Article 32 hearing concluded last week in the case of both Clements and Chatman. It is unclear what the 32 officer's recommendation was to MG Nash. However, given the publicity behind this case, it is likely that Clements and Chatman will both face a general court-martial. Army Times Article
