My son is in...

My son is in the Army. He was arrested by the German Police for a DUI. His Leadership is telling him he will be "chaptered" out for this infraction. Is that accurate?

Lawyer's Assistant: Are you overseas or stateside?

He is in Germany

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?

It is my son who is going through this. He was told today it was a regimental decision as it relates to a new Army policy

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
