Customer Question
Hello! I am trying...

Hello! I am trying to find SOP's to appeal the LOD report regarding my husbands death

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

Oh yes. Brigade legal and JAG have been as helpful as they can be, but the entire situation is really in depth. the determination was based on what we believe to be incorrect reports from the civ ME office

Lawyer's Assistant: Are you overseas or stateside?

JAG has suggested I find a civ atty that is experienced in appeals, which is fine but I can't find one stateside

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

Yes it seems to also revolve around the condition of his remains when he was released from the ME office

I am sorry for your loss. But do not understand what you mean by "appeal LOD"?

That is not possible (there is no way to "appeal" an LOD). What is it you want to accomplish...why are you requesting to change this document?
