Army officer alleges reprisal for his account of Capitol riot response
Yes, this is a potential case of reprisal. Under federal laws, it is illegal to take any adverse personnel action against a person in retaliation for speaking out about a wrong or illegal activity. This includes filing a grievance or complaint about the way federal or military resources were used during the Capitol riots. If the officer believes they are being retaliated against, they can file a complaint with their command or a formal equal opportunity/equal employment opportunity complaint with their respective service branch.
