For your bookshelf

Retired U.S. Marine Corps Major Fred Galvin's book (written with Sal Manna), A Few Bad Men, is the subject of this Marine Corps Times interview. This We Are The Mighty article quotes Major Galvin about his goal:

To drive legal reform changing the Department of Defense’s capital cases to be adjudicated by civilian versus military authorities in the same manner in which Military Sexual Assault cases have changed from being handled by military to civilian judicial authorities. This is due to the repeated examples of Unlawful Command Authority [sic; should read "Influence"] against defendants that have been experienced in the military.

The article also observes that Major Galvin sued the government in 2021. His complaint in federal district court can be found here. The 2022 decision of Judge John D. Bates dismissing part of the case can be found here.
