Nonjudicial punishment is ordinarily appropriate when administrative corrective measures are inadequate due to the nature of the minor offense or the record of the service member, unless it is clear only trial by court-martial will meet the needs of justice and discipline. Nonjudicial punishment shall be considered on an individual basis.
A commander who is considering a case for disposition under nonjudicial punishment will exercise personal discretion in evaluating each case, both as to whether nonjudicial punishment is appropriate, and, if so, as to the nature and amount of punishment appropriate.
