Assaulting or Willfully Disobeying Superior Commissioned Officer
Art. 84. Unlawful Enlistment, Appointment, or Separation Any  person  subject  to  this  code  who  effects an enlistment or appointment in or a separation from  the  armed  forces  of  any  person  who  is known to him to be ineligible for that enlistment, appointment,  or  separation  because  it  is  pro- hibited   by   law,   regulation,   or   order   shall   be punished  as  a  court-martial  may  direct. Art. 85. Desertion This article states that members of the armed forces who, without permission, leave their place of duty or organization with the intent to remain away  permanently  are  guilty  of  desertion. The status of an absentee changes to that of a deserter after 30 days of absence, or sooner if the  intent  to  desert  is  apparent.  For  example, suppose  a  Navy  member  goes  ashore  without permission,  taking  all  personal  belongings  and announcing  to  shipmates  that  he  or  she  is  leaving the   service   for   good.   That   person   could   be immediately declared a deserter. After  an  individual  is  declared  a  deserter, notification   is   forwarded   to   the   next   of   kin; the  deserter’s  hometown  police;  and  various other  law  enforcement  agencies,  including  the FBI.  Deserters  are  nearly  always  caught  and identified  because  of  nationwide  fingerprinting and   identification   practices.   Furthermore,   ex- penses incurred in the return of the deserter to military  control  are  chargeable  to  the  returned absentee. The  effects  of  desertion  can  be  many;  some can be severe. If tried and convicted of desertion, the deserter is almost certainly imprisoned; in time of  war,  the  deserter  may  be  executed.  A  person whose  conviction  of  desertion  in  time  of  war results  in  a  dishonorable  discharge  can  never  hold any office of trust or profit in the United States government. Art. 86. Absence Without Leave Any member of the armed forces who, without  authority— (1) fails to go to his appointed place of duty at the time prescribed; (2)  goes  from  that  place;  or (3) absents himself or remains absent from his unit, organization, or place of duty at which he is re- quired  to  be  at  the  time  prescribed; shall be punished as a court-martial may direct. This article covers every case not provided for in the other punitive articles in which an armed forces member, through that member’s own fault, is not in a required location at a specified time. As   opposed   to   desertion,   whether   or   not   the member  intended  to  remain  away  makes  no difference.  The  intent  is  expressed  by  the member’s   absence. Make sure you avoid the bad habit of taking the last bus, train, or plane when returning from leave. Always allow time for unexpected delays. Art. 87. Missing Movement Any  person  subject  to  this  code  who through  neglect  or  design  misses  the  move- ment of a ship, aircraft, or unit with which he is required in the course of duty to move shall be punished as a court-martial may direct. Provisions  of  article  87  should  be  self- explanatory. However, note that the violator, to be found guilty, need not have known the exact hour or even the exact date of the scheduled move- ment.  If  a  person  had  knowledge  of  only  the approximate   date,   the   court   may   convict   the absentee  on  the  charge  of  missing  movement. Missing ship is a serious offense to the Navy. It leaves   the   ship   shorthanded   and   requires somebody  to  do  the  absentee’s  work  and  stand the  absentee’s  watches. Art. 88. Contempt Toward Officials Any   commissioned   officer   who   uses contemptuous  words  against  the  President, the  Vice  President,  Congress,  the  Secretary of  Defense,  the  Secretary  of  a  military department,  the  Secretary  of  the  Treasury, or the Governor or legislature of any State, Territory,  Commonwealth,  or  possession in which he is on duty or present shall be punished  as  a  court-martial  may  direct. 6-14
