Everybody knows when you change posts/bases or you're getting out you have to clear certain stations. S-4 is one of those biggies. You either have the required equipment in servicable condition or the required paperwork stating why you don't or you pay for it.
Like the articles, Rndersafe and Marinerhodes have pointed out, this guy had the chance to fill out the proper paper work and not have to pay. He choose to pay
I'm way more likely to take the opinions and knowledge of an officer, a supply guy as well as my own knowledge and experience of having to deal with this stuff above what this guy's Dad says is the case.
He still got his way though. He usurped the system, disregarded proceedures that everybody else in this situation has to go through and got the Army to refund his money.
And what's the lesson people will get from this? Well, it pays to run and tattle to the press whenever someone is making you do exactly what it is you're supposed to do.
Way to go Lt! You ass.

As more information has surfaced, I have had to revise my opinion.
WHAT A PUTZ
This turkey had a chance to fill out the necessary paperwork and save himself the aggravation of having to pay money out of his own pocket - shame on him.
One correction - his mother was the one who went to the press about this SNAFU - he just gilded the lily when he told his family about his "bill".

I am not a military person and I am average but I'm NOT a moron. Yes I read the artical and thought it didn't sound good,but I have also learned that you can't believe everything you read and there are always two sides to the story. This guy didn't follow the rules and had to pay the price, his tough luck. A moron I am not!!!
Planning is something you do
