Abstract:

It becomes a difficult question to answer why senior public leaders do not receive the same punishment as other leaders for the same infractions. When Senior Officers and Senior Noncommissioned Officers at the Strategic level get into trouble, there is a belief that these leaders dont receive the same punishment as leaders at the Organizational or Direct level of leadership. This perception tears down the cohesiveness of the military and creates a level of unequal punishment or double standard. Several aspects create the illusion of unequal punishment. These aspects are past senior leader incidents, perceptions formulated within the ranks, and the impact those perceptions have on the military.
