Summaries and Excerpts from Navy
This section lists articles (with a condensation of
their text, if appropriate) from United States Navy
Regulations, 1990, that all personnel in the Navy should
know. This listing serves only as a starting place for you
to learn about Navy regulations. You are responsible
for learning and obeying all regulations. These
regulations are not punitive articles, but laws under
which the Navy operates. Many exist for your own
protection. Failure to obey any regulation subjects the
offender to charges under article 92, UCMJ (Failure to
obey an order or a regulation).
The first two digits of the article number indicate
the chapter of Navy Regs from which the article is taken.
If the article is self-explanatory, no further explanation
is given; the article will be shown in block quotation
exactly as stated in Navy Regs. Articles that are lengthy
Figure 2-2.Three official sources for basic disciplinary laws.
