Abstract:

Soldiers and Department of the Army civilian employees must properly care for government property for which they have responsibility. If either soldier or civilian employee breaches his duty of care toward the government property, and it causes a loss or damage, the individual might have to compensate the government for all or a portion of any loss or damage. Soldiers must also refrain from activity that could cause injury to themselves making them unfit to perform their military duties. Under certain circumstances, the government may deny certain benefits normally given in cases of physical incapacitation or disability. Part I of this programmed instructional text introduces the student to the Army property accountability system called the Report of Survey system. Part II of the text introduces the student to the Line of Duty LOD investigation. The LOD investigation is the procedure by which the Army investigates the circumstances surrounding disease, injury and death of service members. The results of a LOD investigation can substantially impact a soldiers eligibility for disability and incapacitation benefits. The text explains small sections of information and then requires the student to answer questions based upon the instruction. The student should answer each question and then check his answer against the solution. If the student answer is incorrect, the student should review the material again until he understands the correct answer. Each part of the text concludes with a review problem highlighting the major points covered in that portion of the text. The student should refer to the referenced Army regulations, pamphlets, and statutes in addition to this publication since the answer may involve precise interpretation of the exact wording of the primary source. The words he and his when used in this publication represent both the masculine and feminine genders unless otherwise specifically stated.
