I can tell you it is NOT the President of the United States. At the most, the highest Lt.Col Lakin's complaint could have gone is to the Secretary of the Army, but no further. That portion in bold clearly illustrates that his appeal had a particular avenue of redress to follow and once it got to that point within the appeal process, his avenue of appeal stopped right there.

    Sidenote: You can pull this okie-doke on ordinary civilians, but you can't fool us vets.
    Lakin's immediate superior would be Colonel Gordon R. Roberts. What apdst also forget to mention is that an Article 138 can be denied which is what seems to have occurred in this case.

    The only reason this case or any other case like it is likely to get some press is because of the birther issue attached to it. Otherwise, we'd never hear about it. It's akin to filing a frivalous law suit. Some cases are just worthless and have absolutely no merit whatsoever.
