Nonjudicial Punishment
offense, and shall be punished at the discre- tion  of  that  court. Article 134 makes punishable acts or omissions not specifically mentioned in other articles. They include  wearing  an  improper  uniform,  abusive  use of a military vehicle, the careless discharge of a firearm, and impersonating an officer. They also include  offenses  involving  official  passes,  permits, and  certificates,  and  the  wrongful  possession  of a  habit-forming  narcotic  drug. “Discredit” means to injure the reputation of; that  is,  to  bring  the  service  into  disrepute. Examples  include  acts  in  violation  of  state  or foreign laws, failure to pay one’s debts, adultery, bigamy,  and  indecent  acts. Crimes and offenses not capital include those acts   or   omissions,   not   punishable   by   another article, denounced as crimes or offenses by enact- ments of Congress or under authority of Congress and made triable in the federal civil courts. Cer- tain   of   such   offenses   are   made   punishable wherever committed; others are punishable only if committed within the geographical boundaries of  the  areas  in  which  they  are  applicable. Art. 137. Articles To Be Explained Articles  2,  3,  7-15,  25,  27,  31,  37,  38, 55, 77-134 and 137-139 of this code shall be   carefully   explained   to   each   enlisted member  at  the  time  of  his  entrance  on active duty, or within six days thereafter. They shall be explained again after he has completed six months of active duty, and again  at  the  time  when  he  reenlists.  A complete   text   of   the   Uniform  Code  of Military   Justice   and  of  the  regulations prescribed  by  the  President  thereunder shall be made available to any person on active duty upon his request, for his per- sonal  examination. Art. 138. Complaints of Wrongs Any  member  of  the  armed  forces  who believes himself wronged by his command- ing officer, and who, upon due application to   that   commanding   officer,   is   refused redress,   may   complain   to   any   superior commissioned  officer,  who  shall  forward the   complaint   to   the   officer   exercising general court-martial jurisdiction over the officer  against  whom  it  is  made.  The officer   exercising   general   court-martial jurisdiction  shall  examine  into  the  com- plaint   and   take   proper   measures   for redressing  the  wrong  complained  of;  and he  shall,  as  soon  as  possible,  send  to  the Secretary  concerned  a  true  statement  of that  complaint,  with  the  proceedings  had thereon. This  article  provides  for  redress  of  wrongs inflicted  by  a  commanding  officer  on  subor- dinates,  and  it  prescribes  the  procedure  to  be followed   by   subordinates   to   apply   for   such redress. Art. 139. Redress of Injuries to Property (a) Whenever complaint is made to any commanding  officer  that  willful  damage has  been  done  to  the  property  of  any person  or  that  his  property  has  been wrongfully  taken  by  members  of  the  armed forces, he may, under such regulations as the  Secretary  concerned  may  prescribe, convene  a  board  to  investigate  the  com- plaint. The board shall consist of from one to three commissioned officers and, for the purpose of that investigation, it has power to  summon  witnesses  and  examine  them upon oath, to receive depositions or other documentary  evidence,  and  to  assess  the damages  sustained  against  the  responsible parties. The assessment of damages made by the board is subject to the approval of the   commanding   officer,   and   in   the amount approved by him shall be charged against the pay of the offenders. The order of   the   commanding   officer   directing charges herein authorized is conclusive on any disbursing officer for the payment by him to the injured parties of the damages so  assessed  and  approved. (b)  If  the  offenders  cannot  be  ascer- tained,  but  the  organization  or  detachment to  which  they  belong  is  known,  charges totaling  the  amount  of  damages  assessed and  approved  may  be  made  in  such proportion as maybe considered just upon the  individual  members  thereof  who  are shown to have been present at the scene at the time the damages complained of were inflicted,  as  determined  by  the  approved findings  of  the  board. 6-25
