Indeed, the existence of two independent elements, issuance of an order and knowledge of that order, necessarily implies that those inquiries are separate and distinct in establishing a violation of Article 92, UCMJ. We hold that such an order constitutes the entire process of notification set out in the instruction governing the urinalysis program, including presentment of the notification letter to the member.

Command can provide support for positive goals. We conclude the military judge is expressly authorized to sua sponte reconsider any ruling prior to her timely authentication of the record of proceedings. Avi there, SSgt JE heard Appellee say he was mad at himself for damaging his career and that he was trying to quit heroin but could not.
The question of law is: Appellee chose this option before making any admissions to Capt AD. Because I conclude that the drafters of this specific definition of voluntariness did not intend the investigation exception to have an implicit notice or awareness requirement, I am not persuaded by the argument that we should read one into the urinalysis exception simply because under a different rule of law such awareness might have been relevant.
The supervisor told Appellee to report to the orderly room; however neither the supervisor nor TSgt WH were allowed to tell him exactly why he needed to report.
On 1 Aflthe same day she authenticated the record of proceedings, the military judge issued a 6-page supplemental ruling that incorporated the entirety of her original ruling and added several findings of fact and conclusions of law.
In evaluating that issue, we stated: Ordered to Give a Urine Sample The military judge found: We rely on donations for our financial security.
Despite this apparent awareness, they chose not to specify delivery of the order or notification, or even knowledge as the triggering condition for the exception to voluntariness. We also see no prejudice to the Government from these events given the timing of the supplemental filing. We agree with the military judge that the facts in this case are distinguishable.
We limit Alexander through this ruling. We need not address the authority of a military judge to reconsider a decision and any limitations imposed by dilatory authentication.
A consideration in this analysis is whether judicial efficiency is improved. The exceptions to voluntariness in AFI indicate one clear and overriding intent: In Alexander, this court overturned a conviction for cocaine use based on the improper admission of statements and evidence 11 Misc.
Sean Murphy, a student at the George Mason University School of Law, for his assistance with the bench memorandum on this case.
The military judge made the following findings of fact: As a general rule, inquiry into a state of mind is a subjective one. However, in this case, Appellee was only at the hospital in a position to be overheard because his superior noncommissioned officers escorted him there in a direct and unbroken chain of events that started with a protected disclosure.
The interests of justice are best served when the trial judge makes sufficiently detailed and comprehensive findings of fact and conclusions of law.
This is a mixed question of law and fact. In light of this, we will consider her supplemental ruling as setting forth the findings of fact and conclusions of law.
The record, however, indicates that the commander in this case went beyond the requirements of AFI in at least one material sense. In order to answer this question we must interpret both the AFI which creates the limited protection and the AFI which governs the random urinalysis program.
On 4 Decemberthe search authorization was used to obtain a urine sample from the still hospitalized Appellee.
Both parties have been provided sufficient opportunity to respond to this supplemental ruling and the timing of the supplemental ruling was such that it would not unnecessarily delay appellate review. The Government argues that, although the urinalysis test was called a probable cause test, it was actually an extension of the earlier authorized inspection test.
Whether or not we agree, that is not the standard of review. The majority opinion also correctly discounts any assertion that the computer- generated testing roster constituted an order to provide a sample. Ambiguity does not exist simply because more than one specific example can be enumerated under a broader concept. The decision of how best to vindicate those policy concerns, along with all the other policy concerns relevant to drug abuse prevention and treatment, is the appropriate province of the drafters of the instruction, not this court.
Appellee was visibly upset and said something to MSgt CJ indicating he wanted to talk about something serious. United States, U. After arriving at the mental health clinic, Capt AD told Appellee that he might want to obtain the 44-1221 of the area defense counsel ADC. The sample was sent to the Air Force Drug Testing Laboratory which reported the results as positive for heroin, marijuana, and lorazepam. The Manual treats the existence of an order as only one element of the offense of failure to obey a lawful order.

By this time, Appellee was bawling and rocking back and forth. We have reconsidered our ruling on the motion and reach the same conclusion. Steer argued ; Colonel Katherine E. On nine prior occasions, he had provided random urinalysis samples. Your Notes edit none.
Distinguishing between self-identification before notification of an order and after notification of an order recognizes the value of personal acceptance of responsibility as it relates to both treatment and the appropriateness of administrative or criminal consequences. Any government argument to the contrary is without merit.
It would be a far stretch indeed to ignore ai practical reality and interpret into the investigation exception the same notice requirement that the military judge read into the exception at issue here.
