The U.S. Army Europe's former top enlisted man was found guilty of misconduct for an incident in which he drank heavily with a female subordinate who ended up in his bed, the Army said Thursday.
Command Sgt. Major Riley Miller "knowingly fraternized" with a female subordinate under his direct supervision, the military announced in Heidelberg. Miller was issued a formal letter of reprimand and ordered to forfeit $3,704, the maximum allowed under military rules, the Army said.
Miller, who was reassigned to a new post this fall, has appealed the decision to U.S. Army Europe commander Gen. Montgomery C. Meigs, the Army said.
According to the army's findings, Miller and the subordinate, his military driver, engaged in heavy drinking. The woman passed out and awoke naked with Miller in his bed, the Fifth Corps said in a statement.
