17 Guard Company Leaders Removed in Abuse Probe 24 Feb 2012 More than a dozen leaders from a National Guard company deployed on a peacekeeping mission in Kosovo have been removed from the unit following an Army investigation into allegations about harsh tactics used to initiate junior troops, the commander of U.S. Army Europe said Thursday. “The ones pulled out were all NCOs and officers. Right now, we have a total of 17,” Lt. Gen. Mark Hertling said in an interview with Stars and Stripes. “Some have committed more serious offenses than others.” Among those reassigned was the commander of the company, which is from Georgia’s 3rd Squadron, 108th Cavalry Regiment, Hertling said.
