Thanks for the insight. The thing that is sad about it is that this had came from a CSM, The thought process is that, the member is releasing, what's a I/C going to do, when the end result could be a release regardless. I see the CSM's POV but what message does that give others, what message does that give the member? What about the next time? Would the member think, I could get off with anything!
Because of the CSM's POV, I feel that it might be a waste of my time to complete the I/C. The other Snr NCO's in the o'group agree with me., since this particular member was previously charged with AWOL in 2016.
