The former top-enlisted official has been accused of using his soldiers “to perform services for his personal convenience,” in a report from the US Army’s inspector general. Documents revealed that Sgt. Maj. John Troxell would require his staff to run errands for him at CVS, drive him after hours, and provide unnecessary support to him and his wife. Outside of the ethical violations to his soldiers, Troxell is also accused of using his official social media accounts to endorse fitness products and equipment. Videos and images show him wearing only the fitness brand “TRX,” with Troxell claiming those were the only clean workout clothes he had at the time.
