I had a very verbally abusive supervisor in the army and its cost me all kinds of health issues. I know I can't sue the Army but can I sue a person in the army for their personal conduct. This person was extremely verbally abusive publicly humiliating me and others and was even physically abusive to others.

This person made my life a living hell he tried to ruin me professionally and continually tried to sabotage my work including trying to discredit me to others and my subordinates. He was very physically hostile and intimidating. He had the whole unit terrorized.

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.
