My new room mate's dad was the sgt major next door and he took an interest in rearranging our room so it would be fair for his son.
I told my first sgt about it and with no options he did the most unpredictable thing he let the boy run wild. he contacted his chain of command and told them to back off him and let him be free. gave him his own room and no longer punished him for being late or for anything at all.
And soon the boy ran free.
