Punishment Announced After Army Reserve Soldiers Appeared at Democratic Convention


The supervisor of the two Army Reserve Soldiers who appeared in uniform at the Democratic National Convention in August will be punished instead of the unidentified soldiers.

“The investigation found their supervisor violated a Department of Defense directive and an Army regulation that governs soldier political activities,” Lt. Col. Simon Flake, chief of media relations for Army Reserve Strategic Communications, said in a statement to the Military Times.

“The supervisor at fault will receive the appropriate level of disciplinary action for violating the governing standards.”
