Per:

I have 2 questions:

1. Can you please point out to me exactly where in the Army Regulations you are basing the judgment on in your
determination of illegality, in general, and specifically in reference to evidence submitted to Army IG within the context
of a written IGAR complaint?

2. Have you consulted with JAG or a legal expert before reaching a decision about labeling submitted material as “illegal”
in my case? If such consultation did happen, please provide me with the briefs and the details of such consultation. I
believe you will be exceeding your authority and jurisdictional limits, in reaching a unilateral decision to exclude
submitted materials on grounds of illegality (a subject that is highly technical), especially when the material have a
significant impact on the case submitted before you.

Still on the subject of the legality of recorded conversations, in certain states within the United States, one DOES NOT
need the consent of the other parties (and is NOT OBLIGED to inform them) before recording a conversation, in which
they are active participants.

Please follow-up on this and get back to me.

Per:

Is there an Army Regulation specifying this rule? If so, please provide the reference.

I'm sorry but I disagree. For example, there's a big difference between:

"Involuntary Transfer to the Individual Ready Reserve." (which you stated in the letter)

and

"Improper election to pursue involuntary discharge proceedings to have me discharged from the USAR." (what is stated
in my complaint).

There is a big difference between the words "Transfer" and "Discharge"; I never alleged a "Transfer" but a "Discharge."
Consequently, I am still affirming that your Letter of Acknowledgement is not a true representation of my complaint.
Please amend it and send me a revised copy.

Thank you.
