Thanks for the chance to assist

This would be UCMJ Art 107.


Any person subject to this chapter who, with intent to deceive, signs any false record, return, regulation, order, or other official document, knowing it to be false, or makes any other false official statement knowing it to be false, shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.

At a special court martial the maximum punishment is the jurisdictional maximum (1 year confinement, loss 2/3 pay, reduction to E1 and BCD)

At a general court martial, the maximum punishment is 5 years, total forfeiture, reduction to E1 and a DD.
