US ARMY GARRISON WEISBADEN, GERMANY – Sources confirmed today that the upcoming mandatory Christmas party for the 66th Intelligence Brigade is “completely voluntary”, according to statements made by the Command Sergeant Major.
“Hey listen gentlemen, it’s totally up to you to attend,” said CSM Marc A. Scott during the course of an hour-long briefing. “We want people there that actually want to be there and have fun.”
Scott was eager to show his understanding that the holidays were a time for family and soldiers shouldn’t be coerced into attending parties.
“That being said, we’ll be having a quick accountability formation in front of Vapiano at 1925,” he said. “Yes, I know this might be a bit of inconvenience for an accountability formation being at the venue and not on post, but it’s still expected.”
