Squad Commanders: Company Commander Must Undergo Psychological Testing

The squad commanders of a platoon whose members refused to carry out a reconnaissance assignment in September 2008 in Afghanistan, will bring a complaint to the Inspector-General of the army against the then company commander. Meanwhile, he has been promoted from the rank of captain to that of major. The company commander had told them “An order is an order,” in German (this is a typical Nazi expression). He added that he didn’t care who would be killed. The complainants called the commander “dangerous” and want him to be submitted to psychological investigation. They also mentioned that they had to beg their American and Australian colleagues for equipment, as theirs was inadequate. The Australians called the Dutch a “beggars army.”,1
