What if the military command wants to search my property?

You have the right to refuse to consent to the search. Although your commander or the investigators may not tell you of this right, it is still your right. Under no circumstances should you consent to a search. Make them get a warrant or command authorization. If you have consented to a search, you have the right to terminate that consent at any time. You also have the right to see any warrant or search authorization which allows for a search. If you are asked to consent to a search, or if you are shown a search authorization or command search authorization, you should immediately contact an attorney with experience in courts-martial.
