Command Sgt. Maj. Perry McNeill was convicted last week by a military judge who sentenced McNeill to a demotion to sergeant first class, a letter of reprimand and to forfeit $500 in pay per month for 10 months.
The sentence must be approved by the fort's commanding general.
The Ranger Tab is awarded to those who complete Ranger School -- considered one of the Army's toughest training schools. The Pathfinder Badge goes to those who complete a school on managing helicopter landing zones, drop zones and other air-ground operations.
McNeill allegedly wore the badges between 2011 and 2014 while serving in Japan, Turkey and at Fort Sill.
