Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
As this is not something that is part of the official regulations and is a commanding officer
policy, they have to prove that you were actually provided with a copy of that policy and were thus deemed to be aware of the policy. This, combined with the mitigating fact you did not violate the pass itself would be your best defenses and your best chance of appealing this if the hearing officer
convicts you of this, which given the total circumstances conviction on a field grade, which is the most severe, would likely not happen because of your situation unless they prove you were actually told not to leave the 250 mile radius when you received the pass.
I truly aim to please you as a customer, but please keep in mind that I do not know what you already know or don't know, or with what you need help, unless you tell me. Please consider that I am answering the question or question that is posed in your posting based upon my reading of your post and sometimes misunderstandings can occur. If I did not answer the question you thought you were asking, please respond with the specific question you wanted answered.
Kindly remember the ONLY WAY experts receive any credit at all for spending time with customers is if you click on OK, GOOD or EXCELLENT SERVICE even though you have made a deposit or are a subscription customer. YOU MUST COMPLETE THE RATING FOR THE EXPERT TO RECEIVE ANY CREDIT, if not the site keeps your money on deposit.
Also remember, sometimes the law does not support what we want it to support, but that is not the fault of the person answering the question, so please be courteous.
