Q9. List the three types of court-martials.
Discipline is training that develops self-control,
character or orderliness, and efficiency. Justice is
impartialityfairness. Conduct is the way one
actsbehavior. We all deal with discipline, justice, and
conduct in our day-to-day dealings as members of the
U.S. Navy. We have certain standards of behavior, both
on and off duty, by which we must abide. Our justice
system sets those standards of behavior; therefore, it
should not intimidate us.
We also have standards of conduct by which we
must abide if we are taken prisoner. These standards are
fundamental to our safety and to our fellow prisoners.
Discipline or conduct could sometimes make the
difference between saving or losing a unit. Without
discipline, ships would not have the efficient fire or
repair parties that have kept many of them afloat after
major damage. Imagine the panic that would take place
if Sailors didnt have the discipline, self-control, and
efficiency they have been taught.
Our justice system has its own checks and balances.
For example, if a person does something wrong, the
commanding officer is restricted as to the type of
punishment he/she may award. A person also has a right
to appeal punishment awardeda right all people
enjoy. A person also has the right to communicate with
the commanding officer.
Our justice system protects us. Because of naval
regulations and standards of conduct, we know what the
Navy expects of us. Our conduct, both on and off duty,
should reflect our pride in the Navy and in our unit.
