Fort Bliss Commander Replaced Over DWI Charge
A high-ranking Fort Bliss Commander has been relieved of duty following her arrest.
According to El Paso Proud, the 11th ADA Commander was involved in a car crash in August on Highway 70, near Mescalero, and allegedly blew almost twice the legal limit on a breathalyzer test. The article reports that Colonel Shana Peck holds:
the Bronze Star Medal (with Oak Leaf Cluster), Meritorious Service Medal (with a silver Oak Leaf Cluster and Bronze Oak Leaf Cluster), Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal (with two Oak Leaf Clusters), Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal, Iraqi Campaign Medal (with two campaign stars), Global War on Terrorism Service and Expeditionary Medal, Outstanding Volunteerism Service Medal, Overseas Service Ribbon, National Defense Service Medal, Army Service Ribbon, Army Staff Identification Badge, and the Parachutist Badge.
Typical DWI penalties (in New Mexico) for 1st time convictions can include fines, suspended Drivers License and anywhere from 0 to 30 days in jail. With that noted, (and whether she's found guilty or not), do you think relieving this multi-decorated officer of her duties is warranted?
