Come now, gentlemen. You don't have to commit an atrocity to be sent to a penal battalion. Just be politically unreliable.

We even have this from within our last hundred years of Earth history. Stalin had them, the Nazis did too. I am sure there are others.

And some damned fine soldiers can be politically unreliable. Does that mean you don't use them? Of course not! Send em to the Front and have them fight to save their families from the realities of being the family of a political liability.
