No, I didn't witness it, but I had to leave in the middle of supper with my wife to go to the barracks and deal with it, since I was their platoon sgt. According to the soldiers who did witness it, it wasn't the first time that the guy had acted inappropriately, and it was delt with smong themselves, as soldiers will sometimes do, but I'm sure that that was the first time that it had turned violent. I was pissed that it was allowed to get that far and wrote everybody up. The gay soldier for sexual harrassment--IAW the Army's definition of sexual harrassment--the sexually harrassed soldier for assault and two soldiers--a fireteam leader and a squad leader--for dereliction of duty. As NCO's in leadership positions, they should have prevented it from going that far.
The company commander insisted that it be dealt with at the company level, very much against my advice. He didn't want the battalion commander finding out about it, which I understood, kinda. He was a weak CO and he was on the BC's radar, so I understood his motivation. The gay soldier was transferred to another platoon, but it wasn't long before there was trouble there, just about the same scenario, too and then the issue made it's way to battalion, where the **** really hit the fan over the whole ordeal.
The gay soldier was sent for a head measuring session and determined to have some serious preditorial tendencies. Ulimately, he was discharged for an, "inability to adapt to military life", a Chapter 7 discharge. When he went to the shrink, he admitted to two other incidents in basic training. One was never written up, because no one wanted to deal with all the bee-ess and the other was never reported.
