    So does that mean if I just received my article 15, and started doing extra duty about 3 weeks in they are trying to have a 7 day chapter rebuttal trial. And I have no time to prepare my case after work, that this could be in my favor?


    I am looking for the article, in the UCMJ, that describes the process for, remanding an active duty member to the civilian authorities. In a manner of speaking, “extraditing” active duty servicemembers to civilian authorities
