What do I do when a Senior Leader is Verbally abusive?

What do you do when a 1SG calls a lower enlisted a Piece of S _ _ _t the PT field in front of everyone when the unit is taking a pt test. The Soldier got hurt during the PT test and the 1SG took a picture of the Soldier that got hurt laying on the ground then sent it to the commander?

At a minimum it is unprofessional behavior.


I apologize for the delay. Got knocked down with Pneumonia. You have a few options:

1. Blow it off
2. Report him for abuse of subordinates
3. Report him for hazing
4. Report him for failure to care for the health and welfare of the injured Soldier

Either way the situation you discribe is unprofessional.
