Hey, this is SGT Jones, I need some guidance. I'm a new NCO, just got promoted in June. I had a soldier fall asleep on guard duty at my post at a gate. He was on duty to count whatever comes thru the gate to ensure the gate guards were doing there job. He did not have any force protection gear, we were not suppose to have it during this duty. The soldier had fell asleep for 2 minutes and the gate guard beside him woke him up when he missed a car. The soldier then stood up for the rest of his shift and did to fall asleep. I don't want to recommend UCMJ action beside this is his first offense since he has been in the unit and has no other negative counselings but garrison is pushing for action. I need to know what is the best route for a case like this. I don't think UCMJ is necessary for this due to the severity of the situation, and the fact he made a self correction without anybody having to tell him to. I would like some input as to what you think should be done and why you would choose to take your particular route of action.
