US Military Sanctioned for Hiring Prostitutes

It turns out that seven Army soldiers, two marines, and one member of the Air force were involved in the scandal that included partying and hiring escorts and prostitutes two days before President Obama was scheduled to arrive for the Summit of the Americas. There were no US Navy members involved. Most of the investigation was performed by watching surveillance footage from the hotel where the military was staying.

Nine of the military members have been charged with the military equivalent of a misdemeanor, which is termed a nonjudicial punishment. The tenth was issued a letter of reprimand which clears the soldier of any wrongdoing. Their actual punishments have yet to be decided, but none will be career-threatening. They could include restrictions on duties or even demotions, according to one military spokesman. Three of the nine given nonjudicial reprimands have decided to fight the punishment by requesting a court-martial. Six military members accepted the sanctions, which include four members of the Army and two Marines. Investigations into the scandal are still ongoing, and two more members of the military could end up being punished.

In what has been termed the largest Secret Service scandal in the history of the United States, more fallout is sure to come. President Obama even called the men involved “knuckleheads.” Many of the Secret Service men have retired or been fired since the events occurred. The fate of the military men involved is still up in the air.
