Who can respond to derogatory findings in a command investigation?

Field grade and now company grade officers have the right to receive, review, and to respond to derogatory findings. This is based on the 2020 amendment in the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) to 10 United States Code § 615. 10 USC 615 outlines what promotion selection boards may see in the way of negative findings from a prior investigation. Because the amendment includes officers who are potentially to be selected as O-4s (known as field grade officers), company grade officers now are included in the group of people entitled to review and respond to derogatory findings.
