    WASHINGTON — An Army major who said he was forced to drink excessively during a hazing party was sentenced Wednesday to 30 days in confinement for drunk and disorderly conduct, but cleared of sexually assaulting a colleague.

    Maj. Christopher Garbarino, a 36-year-old soldier with three Bronze Stars, will forfeit his pay for the next six months and receive a letter of reprimand, according to officials at Fort Carson, Colo. But he will be allowed to continue his military career.

    Garbarino had been accused of rowdy and embarrassing behavior during the off-duty party in March, including allegations that he groped a female colleague and fought with other officers.

    Garbarino’s attorneys argued that his battalion commander pressured him to binge drink, as part of a fraternity-style initiation designed to build camaraderie

    With five years left, he should make it to 20 before his force retirement will come from being passed over. Depends on how much TIG he has now.

    Sanctuary is no longer a given and with the RIF coming down; its open-season for everyone. As you see, there is little tolerance for any infraction and you gong to pay the man dearly.

    A tragic end to a career progression for the Major... he is responsible for his actions.. and responsible he is being held.... and rightly so...

    The punishment is on the heavy side but still proportionate to the infraction.. and I think thats a good thing... the hazing culture along with officers whom think they can get away scott free acting like teenagers may change if there is consistency in the approach along those lines..
