When Calling the IG:
- Be sure you have a problem, not just a peeve.
- Give your chain of command a chance to solve the problem.
- Be honest and don't provide misleading information.
- Keep in mind that IGs are not policy makers.
- Remember IGs can only resolve a case on the basis of fact.
- Don't expect instant action on your request...be patient.
- Be prepared to take "no" for an answer.
To complain without fear of reprisal is the right of any soldier, civilian, or family member seeking IG help. After all, problem solving is one of the IG's primary missions.

https://perscomnd04.army.mil/milpermsgs.nsf - MILPER messages were designed
to provide a quick, efficient means to impart new procedural guidance and
information to the field user. MILPER Messages and memorandums have a two-year
expiration date. The expiration of a MILPER message does not mean the procedural
guidance contained therein has expired. Questions concerning the location of the
new or changed procedures after the expiration of the message should be directed
to the message proponent. Until current regulations are updated the contents of
MILPER Messages are valid.
