Corrective Training Aspect
Having a Soldier write an essay on the importance of sanitation meets the requirements of corrective training. Specifically:
- It was not punishment
- It was directly related to the observed deficiency
- It specifically addressed the observed deficiency
- It was discontinued once the deficiency was correct
So your corrective training process was correct.
1SG’s Point of View
You stated the 1SG had you sitting in the orderly room doing nothing because he was unhappy with your decision to administer corrective training. I cannot tell you if the 1SG is right or wrong, just as I cannot tell you if you were right or wrong in your decision.
