Following an informal 15-6 investigation Colonel Vanek, the Regimental Commander of the 75th Ranger Regiment, has been given a general order of reprimand which will follow him throughout the rest of his career. An Army spokesman said that the investigation looked into issues concerning, “command climate, perception, and judgement.” Meanwhile, the Army is not commenting on what the general order of reprimand regards but the insider baseball in the Regiment is that Colonel Vanek was reprimanded for misappropriation of military funds to fly himself and his family around on the tax payer’s dime.
