Formal Article 15. AR 27-10, para. 3-17
- Appropriate if:
- Soldier is an officer, or
- Punishment (for any soldier) might exceed 14 days extra duty, 14 days restriction, oral admonition or reprimand, or any combination thereof.
- Classified as company grade Article 15s, field grade Article 15s, and general officer Article 15s. Technically, “general officer Article 15s” are only imposed only officers (general officers can impose greater punishments on officers that other commanders can). General officers can impose Article 15s on enlisted personnel, too, but the available punishments are the same as those available to field grade officers.
