ARTICLES FOR THE GOVERNMENT OF THE NAVY

Articles for the Government of the Navy of the United States are articles approved by act of Congress and thus made into the law of the land for the government of the Navy. The general features of the Navy Regulations are founded on these articles. They are always posted on the ship's bulletin board. Once a month they are read at muster by the executive officer. Every person in the Navy should read these articles carefully and make himself familiar with their general nature.

REDRESS OF WRONGS

“If any person in the Navy considers himself oppressed by his superior, or observes in him any misconduct, he shall not fail in his respectful bearing toward 'him, but shall represent such oppression or misconduct to the proper authority. He will be held accountable if his representations are found to be vexatious, frivolous, or false. Any application for redress of wrong shall be in writing through the immediate commanding officer to the commander in chief of the fleet or squadron, or to the senior officer present, and it shall be the duty of the latter to take such action in the matter as, in his judgment, justice and good of service demand."

QUARRELS AND DISTURBANCES “In the event of a riot or quarrel between persons belonging to the Navy, it shall be the duty of the senior

line officer present to suppress the disturbance, and, if necessary, to arrest those engaged in it even though they may be his superiors in rank; and all persons belonging to the Navy who may be present shall render prompt assistance and obedience to the officer thus engaged in the restoration of order. Should there be no line officer present, the senior officer of the Navy or of the Marine Corps who may be present shall exercise the same authority and be entitled to the same obedience.”
