What's concerning is the disparity in which enlistedmen and officers cases are handled in 3rd brigade. In 2007, during the last deployment to Iraq a soldier was killed by friendly fire as a result of negligence of its commander. The battalion commander recieved a letter of concern and retraining. Bottom line is that his carelessness resulted in the death of his soldier. SGT Vegaquinones gets three years in jail and a dishonorable discharge for negligence. The battalion commander got promoted to colonel and selected for brigade command for his.
