A: I see this as an Anti-Deficiency Act problem. If you feel strongly about it, contact your local Trial Defense Services office or Area Defense Counsel, and ask them to assist you in raising this issue to the command's JAG or IG. Listen carefully to the advice they provide you about going down that road prior to taking action.
