Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
We had annual training up until yesterday and everyone in the convoy had to unpack today at the unit. I was a POV and did an STA for today.
STA is when we request to have that drill date off, and make it up on another day. I was approved and not required to be there today.
Yes. The same one trying to get me there to fill out a sworn statement. I feel like it is a punishment for the email I sent to her and two other officers in my unit.
I am talking with my squad leader right now as well, and I have no orders for today. With the STA, my orders for today were moved to the date that I told them I would come in on to make it up. Does this still apply?
That makes sense. Am I allowed to wait until she emails the orders to leave? I've been told that I can't be on the road for military purpose without the orders. Is this true? Sorry, I just want to make sure I do everything right.
She called me and told me to be there. I was not given the paper orders though.
