Special Forces sergeant major suspended amid legal investigation

The senior enlisted soldier for 1st Special Forces Command has been suspended from duty while he is investigated for violating the Uniform Code of Military Justice, a U.S. Army Special Operations Command spokesman has confirmed to Army Times.

Command Sgt. Maj. Brian Rarey was suspended Oct. 26, pending the results of an administrative investigation, said Lt. Col. Robert Bockholt.

“Based on the initial evidence presented, the commander made the determination to suspend Command Sergeant Major Rarey based on alleged violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice,” Bockholt said.

He declined to elaborate on the nature of the investigation.

“The commander takes leader accountability, both on and off duty, very seriously,” he said. “Upholding standards is a cornerstone of our profession.”

Rarey had been the command sergeant major of 1st SFC since August 2015.
