Show me the DoD regulation, rule, law, document, manual, pamphlet, or within the UCMJ that a soldier's right to have a grievance heard stops at any point in the chain of command, or...
...that a grievance has to go completely through a chain of command.There's also something called the chain of command right?
A soldier has the right to file a grievance against anyone from his company commander, on.
Personally, if I were president, I would be very embarressed that so many of my officers had so little confidence in my ability to lead them.
A good commander would address the grievance immediately and lay the matter to rest, forever. A good commander would, that is.
BTW, the DNC, nor the RNC set the rules for how the UCMJ governs our military...thank God!
