During the initial investigative stages, a Commanding Officer/General must weigh the seriousness of the misconduct with other factors, such as:

    • military character of the accused
    • length of service of the accused
    • inconvenience to the command
    • military necessity
    • operational tempo
    • the good order and discipline of the unit

    For example, the Commanding Officer/General may decide not to prefer charges because the alleged misconduct is not overly serious and would be disproportionately disruptive to the command.

    Typically, a Commanding Officer/General has four options when disposing alleged misconduct:

    1. Court-martial (e.g., general court-martial, special court-martial);
    2. Administrative hearing (e.g., Article 15, summary court-martial, discharge board);
    3. Formal counseling placed in the service record book of the accused;
    4. No action at all, if the allegations seem warrantless.
