Sux if the map he had was incorrect but that's pretty much the way of the Military.

Even if he's absolved it will be a unoffical black mark on his record that will eventually put him behind his peers.
Exactly - that's the "honour" that military types are always on about.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
