The stupid shall be punished…

The reserve officer who thought he was allowed to put on LT almost a YEAR before he was allowed, and failed to take it off when told to by an O-6, is going down for his discretions. Sad thing is, I think he still doesn’t quite get it.

Before his admiral’s mast, Pelletier told Navy Times that while serving in Iraq with an Army civil affairs unit, his Army commanders told him he was allowed to put on the rank of lieutenant before making the standard promotion list, as long as it was approved by the proper authorities. Pelletier was commissioned in November 2003, and while he was in Iraq, was more than a year away from actually being allowed to pin on O-3.
