KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany -- The top enlisted leader for the U.S. Army garrison in Wiesbaden has been relieved of his post more than three months after he was suspended over an alcohol-related incident off base.
Command Sgt. Maj. Sa'eed Mustafa was "administratively relieved" March 3 due to an off-post incident on Nov. 22, 2013, Installation Management Command-Europe said in a statement Thursday.
"He is currently assigned to Installation Management Command Europe in a position commensurate with his rank," the statement said.
Mustafa was suspended as garrison sergeant major on Nov. 25 "based on an alcohol-related incident" in the German state of Baden-Württemberg, the Wiesbaden garrison said in December.
Mustafa on Tuesday declined to be interviewed, citing "pending legal matters." Neither he nor his attorneys responded by deadline Thursday to an email seeking comment on his being administratively relieved.
Command Sgt. Maj. Roy L. Rocco is to assume responsibility as the Wiesbaden garrison sergeant major on March 24. Master Sgt. Richard Jungmann, the noncommissioned officer in charge of the garrison's emergency services directorate, has served as acting garrison sergeant major since Mustafa's suspension.
