Customer Question
In an Army Informal...

In an Army Informal Commanders Inquiry is it normal for the BC to submit the inquiry to Jag for Review ? I am subject to a Commanders inquiry and have not been questioned by the investigating officer or anyone. The only reason I found out was due to Soldiers contacting me

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been officially filed?

I have no idea I just left company command and apparently the accusations arose 2 weeks prior to my leaving command 8 July. Im in the Army Reserves and just got back from deployment in March so our REAR D commander 1LT and her XO were conducting the preliminary. I tried to submit my transfer paperwork and asked and received a email from the BC that a commanders inquiry was conducted and that the findings were sent to brigade JAG for review

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?

The Battalion Commander in which he conducted his own Commanders inquiry

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

The LT that conducted the preliminary just from hear say from other soldiers stated that "she was out to get me" "that I should fry etc" I just don't know about what to expect etc as this is all new

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
