Why do you always jump to such extreme conclusions when I say anything?  He quit and took retirement. He was not dishonorably discharged.  I never said what you said I said. So now he gets retirement pay and can start another career.  He will be financially ahead by leaving.

The other thing not mentioned is that he received a promotion and retired two days later, which is what he wanted and pushed for.  Had he stayed his assignment would not have been a job he wanted.  So, in the end it was his choice to leave and he is still complaining about it.

I believe his promotion was delayed.

It was but it happened. Interesting only Fox reported it happened. I looked for other references

But Esper signed off on Vindman’s promotion to colonel on Monday, a senior defense official confirms to Fox News, two days before the Army officer announced his retirement.

I found a wealth of articles on this.  I believe he was approved for the promotion but whether DT signed it isn't clear.  The articles are all over the place - they all agree he was approved, none say the President signed it.  Since it all happened a couple days ago, more info may show up later
