Not in Line of Duty -- Due to MisconductPossible LOD Determinations:1. The determination of “In Line of Duty” has more to do with a member’s status at the time of the illness or injury rather than whether or not the injury or illness was caused by specific military duty.This determination is made unless a preponderance of evidence supports the finding that the member’s disease or injury was incurred while the member was absent without authority or was caused by the members misconduct.This is the usual finding for a Reservist injured while traveling directly between the member’s unit and home.2. This is a term added to a medical diagnosis where there is clear evidence the underlying condition causing it existed prior to the member’s entry into military service or between periods of service, and was not aggravated by service.3. This determination is made when a preponderance of evidence supports the finding that the members injury or disease was not caused by the members misconduct and did not occur in the line of duty.The finding would be used for a Reservist injured during a material deviation from the direct route of travel between unit and home.4.
