Is it? Did you read the article?
The woman who received the messages told USA TODAY last year that the texting began as friendly banter after she had met Harrington at the gym in Vicenza, Italy. She became concerned with the texts when they grew suggestive. The relationship did not become physical, she told investigators.

She also said that she did not feel sexually harassed by Harrington. But she did feel he had "worked" her for three months and perhaps wanted her to send him pictures of herself naked, but was too smart to ask for them, according to the report.

Navy
The command master chief of a San Diego-based helicopter squadron was relieved Tuesday due to allegations of misconduct with a subordinate, Naval Air Forces Pacific officials confirmed.

Master Chief Douglas Steinmetz was relieved by the commanding officer of Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron 8 after a preliminary inquiry revealed evidence that he had “an unduly familiar relationship with a subordinate sailor,” AIRPAC spokesman Cmdr. Ron Flanders said.
...
The squadron provides vertical lift search and rescue, logistics, anti-surface warfare, special operations support and other capabilities as part of Carrier Air Wing 11.

Navy
The skipper of the amphibious transport dock ship Somerset was relieved of command last week after less than six months on the job, Navy officials confirmed Tuesday.

Capt. William Sherrod was fired on April 12 “due to a loss of confidence in his ability to effectively lead and carry out assigned duties,” Naval Surface Force Pacific spokesman Lt. Andrew DeGarmo said in an email.

He was relieved after an investigation into “command climate concerns,” and the firing was not due to one specific event, DeGarmo said.

Sherrod took command of the San Diego-based ship in November.

Before that, he had been the ship’s executive officer since June 2016.

Army
A Germany-based cavalry scout was convicted Wednesday of destruction of government property and making a false official statement for his role in a botched Humvee air drop that destroyed three of the vehicles during an April 2016 training exercise.

A judge found Sgt. John Skipper, who was in charge of verifying that the parachutes were properly rigged, had intentionally cut their straps, causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage, according to a 7th Army release.

“Skipper was sentenced to a reduction in grade to E-1 and a Bad Conduct Discharge by a court-martial panel consisting of enlisted soldiers and officers,” the release said.

Video of the incident made the rounds on social media soon after the C-130 drop, which was part of the Saber Junction exercise at the Hohenfels Training Area in Germany. The soldier filming on the ground could be heard cheering and laughing.

He received a letter of reprimand last year for his unprofessional conduct both on camera and in sharing the video.

No. Two different people.

The rigger is out of the Army as a private. The filmer basically got a write-up that could come back to bite him in the ass later.

No, the unnamed soldier who shot and circulated the video was reprimanded over a year ago, but it wasn't Skipper.
The 173rd Airborne Brigade soldier charged in connection with the spectacular destruction last year of three Humvees that slipped free from their parachutes during a drop and plummeted to earth is not a parachute rigger. He is a Germany-based scout who’d been assigned to assist the brigade’s Italy-based parachute riggers during the exercise, authorities said.

Already punished in connection with the incident is a soldier who was heard laughing and cursing as he shot video of the falling Humvees on April 11, 2016, at the Hohenfels training area. He has been reprimanded, Christian Marquardt, a 7th Army Training Command spokesman, said Thursday.

More serious consequences face Sgt. John Skipper, a scout with the Germany-based 1st Squadron, 91st Cavalry Regiment (Airborne). Skipper, who had been detailed to assist the 173rd’s 601st Quartermaster Company, based at Aviano Air Base, was charged in May with several counts of destruction of government property and making a false official statement.

Under normal circumstances, it appears that you get one free reduction in rank with each Bad Conduct discharge.
(a) Unless otherwise provided in regulations to be prescribed by the Secretary concerned, a court-martial sentence of an enlisted member in a pay grade above E–1, as approved by the convening authority, that includes—
(1) a dishonorable or bad-conduct discharge;
(2) confinement; or
(3) hard labor without confinement;
reduces that member to paygrade E–1, effective on the date of that approval

Not read deep into that but wouldn't what was done be a more serious thing? Making them fall with no chute would be damn deadly to those on the ground if they fell off course. So people could have died and others that worked on it could have mental repercussions because of it.

He got bonus reductions, since he was an E-5.

Since he's out, the impacts will be limited. He's already barred from any post-separation benefits. His discharge paperwork (DD-214) will reflect his rank at the time of separation, meaning that he can't officially claim to be a sergeant at time of separation. Any employer or school application will likely ask him if he served and if he received an other-than-honorable discharge. How much an honest answer impacts his future will depend on who's reading it.

Navy
Prosecutors in Virginia say a former U.S. Navy senior chief has been sentenced for his involvement in a procurement fraud scheme that resulted in a $2.3 million loss to the Navy.

The Virginian-Pilot reports 42-year-old Clayton Pressley III, of Chesapeake, was sentenced to two years in prison Tuesday.

Court documents show that Pressley conspired with two others to form a sham government contracting firm in May 2014. The company was ostensibly formed to provide “inert training aids” to Navy units.

A U.S. Attorney’s Office news release says the conspirators manipulated the government procurement process to contract with themselves and signed fraudulent documentation indicating the company had delivered product when it had not.

The Navy would pay the company through intermediaries and ultimately the conspirators would distribute the proceeds among themselves.

When federal investigators first started looking into Clayton Pressley III, they thought the Chesapeake sailor was only guilty of stealing the identities of his subordinates.

But while that case worked its way through the courts in late 2016, they got a tip: The Bronze Star recipient was also ripping off the Navy through an elaborate procurement fraud scheme.

Pressley was sentenced Tuesday to two years in federal prison in connection with the $2.3 million fraud. That is on top of four years and two months he received in the identity theft case, in which he fraudulently obtained $24,000 in loans.

CNN
A Louisiana soldier was sentenced to 11 years in prison Monday for constructing and detonating a bomb last year near the Fort Polk Army post.

Ryan Keith Taylor, 24, of New Llano, Louisiana, pleaded guilty in June to manufacturing and detonating a chemical weapon in the Kisatchie National Forest. The bomb contained "highly toxic chlorine gas," which is banned under national and international laws, the Department of Justice said in a news release.

Two soldiers suffered severe injuries after coming into contact with the chemical and its residue.
...
Taylor detonated the bomb on the morning of April 12, 2017, in the Kisatchie National Forest beside the Fort Polk Army base, according to his guilty plea. Three soldiers in the middle of a training exercise nearby heard the blast and found Taylor filming the explosion with his cell phone. The soldiers questioned Taylor and told military police who arrived on scene to investigate, according to the Justice Department.

As police collected samples, one investigator put a rock covered in an unknown substance in a bag, which immediately popped. The investigator's plastic gloves and boots began to melt, his skin began to burn and he had trouble breathing, the Justice Department said in its release.

Taylor was detained and his vehicle was searched, the release said. Investigators found remnants of the bomb and chlorine residue in the car. Law enforcement agents ultimately found bomb-making notes, materials and chemical residue in Taylor's vehicle, apartment and storage building, the Justice Department said.

Another investigator, who inhaled and touched the residue, was hospitalized.

Belgium
A maintenance worker accidentally fired a 20mm Vulcan cannon from an F-16 jet he was working on at Belgium’s Florennes Air Force Base earlier this week, destroying another F-16 while damaging another aircraft nearby, according to multiple media reports.

A worker apparently opened fire across the flight line while performing maintenance on Oct. 11, according to Avio News. The F-16 that was racked by cannon fire quickly caught fire and exploded, since it was loaded with fuel and being readied for an afternoon sortie, according to Scramble Magazine.
...
Belgium’s Ministry of Defense said in a statement that two technicians suffered hearing injuries and were treated on the spot, while adding that an investigation into the incident had been launched.

Navy
Military authorities accuse Capt. Heather E. Cole of failing to disclose her active duty military status while negotiating nearly $635,000 worth of contracts for her Oklahoma-based manufacturing firm, Worksaver Material Handling Equipment Company, Inc., between 2002 and 2015, according to charge sheets released to Navy Times.
...
Her criminal conspiracy charges are tied to five Marine Corps contracts, two Defense Logistics Agency deals and one Air Force order given to Worksaver between 2002 and 2013.

Prosecutors also contend that Cole lied in 2012 to a Navy legal officer by claiming she was a non-participating partner in Worksaver, that her firm received a waiver to do business with the federal government and also never did business with the Navy, according to the legal filings.

Other charges allege that she misused both "U.S. Government aircraft without proper authorization” in 2014 and 2015 and her military communication system and equipment in 2013.

Decorated US soldier 'admitted murder in CIA job interview'
A decorated US special forces soldier has been charged with an Afghan man's murder, which he reportedly admitted while applying for a job with the CIA.

US Army Green Beret Major Matthew Golsteyn allegedly shot someone he described as a suspected Taliban bomb-maker during his 2010 deployment.

Maj Golsteyn also subsequently spoke about the incident during an interview with Fox News.

He denies the charge and maintains he did not violate rules of engagement.
In 2011 he took a routine lie detector test during an interview process for a job with the CIA.

He allegedly told interviewers that on 22 February 2010 he and another soldier had taken an alleged Taliban bomb-maker off base, shot him and buried his remains, reports NBC News.

The admission led the Army Criminal Investigation Command to investigate Maj Golsteyn in 2011.

In April 2014, he got off with an official reprimand because of lack of evidence.

Two years later, Maj Golsteyn spoke on a Fox News special report, titled "How We Fight", about how he killed the suspected bomb-maker.

He told the anchor he shot the man because he was concerned he would kill Afghan informants if released.
I'd like to see the rules of engagement that authorize the summary execution of a suspected bomb-maker that was already in custody.

Decorated US soldier 'admitted murder in CIA job interview'
A decorated US special forces soldier has been charged with an Afghan man's murder, which he reportedly admitted while applying for a job with the CIA.

US Army Green Beret Major Matthew Golsteyn allegedly shot someone he described as a suspected Taliban bomb-maker during his 2010 deployment.

Maj Golsteyn also subsequently spoke about the incident during an interview with Fox News.

He denies the charge and maintains he did not violate rules of engagement.
In 2011 he took a routine lie detector test during an interview process for a job with the CIA.

He allegedly told interviewers that on 22 February 2010 he and another soldier had taken an alleged Taliban bomb-maker off base, shot him and buried his remains, reports NBC News.

The admission led the Army Criminal Investigation Command to investigate Maj Golsteyn in 2011.

In April 2014, he got off with an official reprimand because of lack of evidence.

Two years later, Maj Golsteyn spoke on a Fox News special report, titled "How We Fight", about how he killed the suspected bomb-maker.

He told the anchor he shot the man because he was concerned he would kill Afghan informants if released.

Maybe he'll get another chance at a job offer. The CiC has taken an interest in his case.

Marines
One day after he publicly apologized for saying on national television that he refused to work with female Marines, Sgt. Frank Cala has been fired as a chef for the commandant.

"Sgt. Cala was removed from the commandant's staff and reassigned to the Marine Enlisted Aide Program," Capt. Diann Rosenfeld, of Marine Barracks Washington, D.C., said on Wednesday.

Cala was eliminated on an episode of the reality TV show "Hell's Kitchen" that aired on April 1. After being kicked off the show by host Gordon Ramsay, Cala blamed the women on his team.

"That's exactly why I get [expletive] female Marines and I send them back wherever the [expletive] they came from," Cala said in a video segment that appeared to be edited.
...
After video of Cala's remarks was posted on the Facebook page of the group "End Gender Bias in the Military," the Marine Corps condemned Cala's comments about female Marines and said it would "determine what further actions may be warranted."
