AIT Soldier is Ordered by Platoon Sergeant not to get into a Car with Father (an Officer), because it is Fraternization!

Could a civilian parent pick up their child, sign them out, and ride with them in a car on the weekend within the policy allowed by the unit?  My answer is ABSOLUTELY! So why then would we prevent a Military Parent from seeing their child simply because the Parent is an Officer or Senior member of the military?

As Soldiers we are held to different standards.  For example, while Adultery is a rather common practice within the civilian sector. It is punishable by dishonorable discharge, forfeiture of all pay/allowances, and up to 1 year in prison for members of the military. So there is a precedence for military members being treated differently than members of civilian society.
