Commander of Role 2 Medical charged
« on: February 27, 2018, 18:21:51 »
The Canadian Armed Forces has laid disciplinary charges against Lieutenant-Colonel James Jonasson, Commander of the Role 2 Medical Treatment Facility in Iraq under Operation IMPACT.

The charges relate to an alleged incident in October 2017 during pre-deployment training in Canada that was later reported in January 2018, after deploying to Iraq.

Lieutenant-Colonel Jonasson faces two charges, one charge of Ill-treatment of a Subordinate under section 95 of the National Defence Act and one charge of Drunkenness under section 97 of the National Defence Act. As in all service discipline cases, the subject of charges is presumed innocent until proven guilty. The matter is now proceeding in accordance with the military justice system.

Oh, good. Just what we need.
The Nation that makes a great distinction between its scholars and its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting done by fools. ...

The true measure of a man is what he would do if he knew he never would be found out...
