"A court-martial for this is a joke. Not exactly a morale booster. This problem should have never gotten this far. Deal with at the lower levels. A minor dressing down, a promise not to do it again, and then all go out for a beer together."
I agree, except for the "dressing down" part. It should NEVER have gotten this far. This kind of stuff was usually handled by the caught privates getting the crap beat out of them and sent back to their units. Court marshal?? Would never happen when I was in.

The "minor dressing down" is so that there is no official sanctioning of this kind of activity. Nothing negative in anyones record, and as long as the convening authority bought the beer later it would be a wash.
