We also see no prejudice to the Government from these events given the timing of the supplemental filing. See United States v. Are the Findings of Fact Clearly Erroneous?

Appellate Counsel for the United States: In addition to finding that Appellee never received an order to provide a urine sample as part of the drug testing program, the military judge determined that the issue was not whether Appellee should have known that an order was forthcoming fai when the commander or his designee signed the order, but rather whether Appellee received the order.
If they don’t, we provide education.
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. ADAPT staff will be on hand today from noon-4 p. We limit Alexander through this ruling.

Oler; and Gerald R. Ambiguity does not exist simply because more than one specific example can be enumerated under a broader concept. 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.
Subsequent testing revealed the urine contained the metabolites for heroin, marijuana, and lorazepam. As she accurately summarized, that offense has four elements: Appellee chose this option before making any admissions to Capt AD. She then suppressed statements Appellee made to his first sergeant, statements he made in the emergency room within the hearing of another noncommissioned officer, and the results of a urinalysis procured through a search authorization which relied on those statements.
Based on this, the Government contends the supplemental ruling is invalid and should be struck from the record. A consideration in this analysis is whether judicial efficiency is improved.
In determining how to proceed here, we employ ordinary rules of statutory construction to interpret the Rules for Courts-Martial, to include reading them holistically. Case law suggests that a commander who retains all discretionary authority related to a certain order may lawfully delegate to subordinates the ministerial aspects of promulgating the order.
This ruling affected all three specifications in the case. The sample notification letter in AFI does not purport to order the subject to provide a sample. What constitutes an order to give a urine sample as part of the drug-testing program?
Once notified of the order, they no longer have a choice and must accept whatever consequences come as a result of the testing. I see no reason why they should not also be separate and distinct in interpreting AFI The majority opinion notes that the military judge consulted AFI in deciding whether Appellee had been ordered to provide a sample.
We agree with the Government that Appellee received an order to report to the orderly room. We rely on donations for our financial security. Second, while I considered the argument that our interpretation of voluntariness, as a state of mind, should by its nature include only those facts of which the subject was aware, the surrounding context of AFI shows that the drafters did not intend that 16 Misc.
The majority opinion also correctly discounts any assertion that the computer- generated testing roster constituted an order to provide a sample. We disagreed and denied the motion to strike. Appellee made these statements in the presence of SSgt JE but not directly to him. In the routine course of events, the subject of a drug abuse investigation is often not aware that the investigation has begun.
Similarly, statements made by an accused 44-1221 friends, family, or co-workers that were independent of protected statements seeking treatment should also not be suppressed.
The military 44-112 did not abuse her discretion when she concluded that the statements by Appellee to MSgt CJ met the requirements to be afforded the limited protection of AFI On nine prior occasions, he had provided random urinalysis samples.
Our reasoning is set forth below. Once 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. In Alexander, the disclosures at issue were made to the first sergeant and drug treatment personnel, bringing the disclosures and the urinalysis results directly stemming from those disclosures under the limited protection of the regulation.
The interests of justice are best served when the trial judge makes sufficiently detailed and comprehensive findings of fact and conclusions of law. In my view, both the military judge and the majority opinion depart from the plain language of AFI in holding that the relevant inquiry is whether Appellee had received or been notified of an order to provide a urine sample rather than inquiring whether such an order had been issued.
