Army officials said Tuesday that Pfc. Jennifer Sewell has safely returned to Fort Hood.

Sewell is a Fort Hood soldier who failed to report for duty on Thursday and was later confirmed safe with extended family on Sunday.

Fort Hood officials alerted media outlets on Saturday that they were seeking the public’s assistance in locating her.

Sewell’s chain of command worked closely with her and her family to help facilitate her safe return to Fort Hood Monday afternoon.

Sewell’s leadership and chain of command will continue to provide her access to resources and other tools necessary to thrive as a soldier and continue honorably serving.

“The 3rd Cavalry Regiment and Fort Hood deeply appreciates the public’s support and quick action to help proliferate initial and follow-up reports regarding this situation,” officials said in a news release.

"Sewell’s chain of command worked closely with her and her family to help facilitate her safe return to Fort Hood Monday afternoon." What???? So, the Army negotiated the terms of her return? This is ridiculous, she should have been charged for being AWOL.

Discipline and accountability. The US Army is not babysitters.

"Continue honorably serving?"

You have to, first, start something before you can continue doing it.

When you go A.W.O.L. because you'd rather spend the weekend with friends and family instead of being at your assigned post you're not serving honorably.

Just another little 'woe is me' crybaby too gutless to do the job she signed up for and now her failures are everybody else's fault because Lord knows she's not supposed to be held accountable for her actions!

This is one of the things I fault Trump with. He should never have stuck his nose in this mess to begin with in the Guillen affair. Now he's made a mess out of the CDC, with his decision to come up with a plan. Now that is what we get. Yep, what an Army.

Obviously the Army is loaded with so many troops with fragile psyches that they have no other way to deal with them without decimating the ranks. Head cases and gang bangers. What an Army.

'He's an old man that remembers what it used to be to be an 'American'.

Copy: 'Army officials said Tuesday that Pfc. Jennifer Sewell has safely returned to Fort Hood.

Sewell is a Fort Hood soldier who failed to report for duty on Thursday and was later confirmed safe with extended family on Sunday.'

Continuation of copy: 'Sewell’s chain of command worked closely with her and her family to help facilitate her safe return to Fort Hood Monday afternoon.

Sewell’s leadership and chain of command will continue to provide her access to resources and other tools necessary to thrive as a soldier and continue honorably serving.' End of copy.

Well that pretty well finishes off our Army and the fearless chain of command doesn't it. Sounds like it will not be even a hand slap.

It used to be, when I in the older version of the military, that you went AWOL, if you returned of your own volition, it was an Article 15 offense and you were subjected to the offense involved, If you did not return on your own then that was a court marshal offense. In either case, you had to serve time for your offense. But this case has all of the ear marks of white wash. There, there now, don't do it again, type offense with the statement: 'Sewell’s leadership and chain of command will continue to provide her access to resources and other tools necessary to thrive as a soldier and continue honorably serving'. Sounds like she will serve no time at al and she is even being guidance counseling', she will not be reduced in rank or any other type of service duty. So, it sounds like 'She will be given a free trip for her offense'.

Is this what 'The New Army' will be like? If so, I would not like this 'New Army' for it seems like it has already gone down the tubes.
