And it's on him to ensure that the people under his command have the training and skills to move those machine guns safely and competently. The
commander of the unit is responsible for everything that takes place in that unit. Period. End of story. Otherwise you have commanders who don't do
their job and blame their subordinates and get away with it.
The commander is responsible for auditing the weapons and ensuring that all equipment is accounted for. And if anything is missing, he's responsible
for reporting it to higher. The grenades went missing in May, the M240 may
have been missing in January. So either it went missing under his
command, and he failed to report it, or it was missing prior to him taking over and he failed to do an audit upon taking over command and didn't
report it to keep from looking bad. It's not clear when it went missing though.
