The specialist finally surfaced the next morning, hung over and late for work.

"He had become inebriated and spent the night with the local national."

:yes: Please, tell us more!

"There would be no disciplinary action because the staff sergeant was on liberty and so technically not AWOL. More than likely his commanding officer spoke to him in extremely strong language."

"No disciplinary action..."

In my day, reclassing a helo tech to MOS 0311, Infantry Rifleman, wasn't considered to be a disciplinary action. They'd write it up as a "lateral move" for the good of the Corps. :)

On the other hand, this guy is going to become a legend!
