The top enlisted soldier at U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbadenhas been suspended from his job as garrison command sergeant major after “an alcohol-related incident,” according to an Army spokeswoman.
Command Sgt. Maj. Sa’eed Mustafa was suspended Nov. 25 after the off base incident, Anemone Rueger, a spokeswoman for the Wiesbaden garrison, told Army Times in an emailed statement.
Rueger said no one else was involved in the incident, but otherwise did not elaborate on the allegations against Mustafa, writing that the “investigation is ongoing.”
Mustafa, a native of Highland Falls, N.Y., is a 29-year Army veteran who took the top enlisted post of the Wiesbaden garrison in July 2012, according to his official biography on the garrison’s website. As of Friday, he was still listed on the site as the garrison’s top enlisted leader.
The incident for which Mustafa was suspended occurred outside the Wiesbaden area in the German state of Baden-Württemberg, Rueger said. The base newspaper’s police blotter didn’t list it because it didn’t occur within the base’s area of responsibility, according to Stars and Stripes, which first reported Mustafa’s suspension.
Master Sgt. Richard Jungmann is standing in as Wiesbaden’s garrison sergeant major, Rueger said. Jungmann is the noncommissioned officer in charge of the base’s directorate of emergency services.
While the incident is under investigation, Mustafa “is working for (U.S. Army Europe) Headquarters in a position commensurate with his rank,” Rueger wrote.
