Petition regarding non-combat death investigations

Please consider creating an account at and sign our petition.

Ensure that the Department of Defense honor its own Instructions 5505.10 and 1300.18 regarding non-combat deaths.

"All military non-combat deaths, not of natural causes, must be investigated as potential homicides, as the most current Department of Defense Instructions, 5505.10 and 1300.18 specify. We believe that the Department of Defense should obey their own guidelines regarding investigations. Rules about informing family members of these fallen military men and women should be followed. Breaches of the Uniform Code of Military Justice by members of the Armed Forces which have contributed to these non-combat deaths or to the dissemination of false official statements must be punished according to the UCMJ. An independent review panel should be created to investigate discrepancies presented by families. "
