Art. 89. Disrespect Toward Superior Commis- sioned  Officer Any  person  subject  to  this  code  who behaves with disrespect toward his superior commissioned officer shall be punished as a  court-martial  may  direct. A superior commissioned officer is a commis- sioned  officer  who  is  superior  in  rank  or  com- mand.   Disrespect   includes   insulting   words, insolence,   impertinence,   undue   familiarity   or other  rudeness,  and  failing  to  salute. Art.  90.  Assaulting  or  Willfully  Disobeying Superior Commissioned Officer Any person subject to this code who— (1) strikes his superior commis- sioned   officer   or   lifts   up   any weapon  or  offers  any  violence against  him  while  he  is  in  the execution  of  his  office;  or (2)  willfully  disobeys  a  lawful command  of  his  superior  commis- sioned   officer; shall   be   punished,   if   the   offense   is committed in time of war, by death or such other punishment as a court-martial may direct, and if the offense is committed at any other time, by such punishment, other than death, as a court-martial may direct. An  officer  is  in  the  “execution  of  his  office” when  performing  any  act  the  officer  is  required or authorized to do. Note that the article is not confined   to   striking   a   superior   commissioned officer;  it  takes  in  brandishing  a  weapon  or waving  a  fist  under  the  officer’s  nose. Willful   disobedience,   as   used   here,   means intentional defiance of a lawful order. You must presume that any order given by an officer is legal. If you disobey because you think otherwise, you do  so  at  your  own  risk.  It  is  better  to  do  your questioning after you have carried out the order. Art.  91.  Insubordinate  Conduct  Toward  Warrant Officer, Noncommissioned Officer, or Petty Officer Any  warrant  officer  or  enlisted  member who— (1) strikes or assaults a warrant officer,   noncommissioned   officer, or  petty  officer,  while  that  officer is  in  execution  of  his  office; (2) willfully disobeys the lawful order   of   a   warrant   officer,   non- commissioned  officer,  or  petty  of- ficer;  or (3)  treats  with  contempt  or  is disrespectful  in  language  or  deport- ment  toward  a  warrant  officer, noncommissioned  officer,  or  petty officer,  while  that  officer  is  in  the execution  of  his  office; shall be punished as a court-martial may direct. This  article  has  the  same  general  objectives with   respect   to   warrant   officers,   noncommis- sioned  officers,  and  petty  officers  as  articles  89 and  90  have  with  respect  to  commissioned  of- ficers. Namely, it ensures obedience to their lawful orders  and  protects  them  from  violence,  insult, or  disrespect. Art. 92. Failure To Obey Order or Regulation Any person subject to this code who— (1) violates or fails to obey any lawful general order or regulation; (2)   having   knowledge   of   any other  lawful  order  issued  by  a member of the armed forces, which it is his duty to obey, fails to obey the  order;  or (3)  is  derelict  in  the  perform- ance  of  his  duties; shall be punished as a court-martial may direct. A  general  order  or  regulation  is  one  that applies  generally  to  an  armed  force.  It  may  be issued  by  the  President  or  the  Secretary  of Defense, the Secretary of Transportation, or the Secretary  of  a  military  department.  It  may  also be  issued  by  an  officer  having  general  court- martial  jurisdiction,  a  general  or  flag  officer  in command,  or  a  commander  superior  to  one  of these. Disobedience  of  “any  other  lawful  order” requires that the person must have had a duty to obey the order and must have had knowledge of the  order.  An  accused  may  be  charged  with disobedience  of  the  lawful  order  of  one  not  a superior, provided the accused had a duty to obey 6-15
