Line of Duty

Line of duty investigations are conducted to establish the legal conclusion as to whether the Soldier was at fault at the time of his injury or death.  Line of duty investigations are important to the Soldier if an injury occurs while the Soldier is on active duty in order for him/her to receive medical care upon departure from active duty.  Veteran Affairs or other facilities will not treat Soldiers for injuries unless service connection is proven.  This is done by the LODI.
