    I have recently had a Army Reserve active military person threaten me. This occured while this person was under my supervision as my subbordinate at work and this threat was witnessed by several employees at this place of work. What can I do?

    I believe that falls under Art 128, assault. Although the threat is verbal in nature (simple assault under subsection 1) it still falls under article 128 (vice assault and battery which denotes the physical touching of another, subsection 2). Google UCMJ Article 128 and you will see the various levels of assault.
