The United States is founded upon the Constitution, the rule of law that stems
from the Constitution, and the institutions designed to preserve and protect the
law—including the armed forces. Our respect for the law is a reflection of our values as a nation.

Military commanders hold a special position of authority under the law. Today’s
commanders must make decisions in an environment of increasingly complex laws,
rules, and regulations both nationally and internationally. The Military Commander
and the Law is widely-recognized as a valued resource for leaders at every level and as a first-stop for commanders who need insight into the challenging legal issues that confront them. After reviewing the materials in this publication, a commander’s next stop is the local staff judge advocate, who will provide personal assistance resolving specific issues. Together, commanders and judge advocates are partners in safeguarding good order and protecting our Nation’s most-cherished freedoms.

Please refer to this book early and often, and I trust it will become one of your most
useful resources.
