8 Generals "Disciplined" After Misstep On Warheads

"Disciplined"? Sure, if you want to call it that.

According to officials, at least one Air Force general received a letter of reprimand, which is a more serious rebuke, while others got less severe letters of admonishment or counseling. The two Army brigadier generals received what are called 'memorandums of concern,' also a lower level of punishment.

What, none of them received a stern talking-to? No one was made to stand in the corner for 30 minutes? Sent to bed without dinner? What the heck is a "letter of admonishment"? And is a "memorandum of concern" more of a punishment to the receiver, or poor E5 PAC clerk who's stuck dealing with all the associated paperwork with it?
