Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
If he was acting in the course and scope of his employment, you cannot sue him either, just like you cannot sue the army. I am afraid he is covered the same as his employer, the army would be. I am afraid that the type of conduct you describe, unless it was occurring based only on your age/race/sex/disability/national origin, would be actionable only through an internal complaint and employer action, not legal action.
