Space Force Soldier Demoted For Skipping Training To Get A PS5

A soldier in the U.S. Space Force has been disciplined for skipping training – to get a Playstation 5.

The soldier was 30 minutes late for a physical training session because he was scouting nearby Target stores for a PS5. As if that wasn’t bad enough, when an officer told him to get to the session, the soldier responded “Yolo, PS5 > letters of discipline.

But the soldier ended up getting a lot more than just a letter – he was demoted from Senior Airman to Airman 1st Class. The Space Force has not confirmed whether or not he managed to snag a PS5.

Military folk – how would something like this have been handled in your day? Should he have faced an even stiffer discipline?
