Can military physical examinations be challenged?

Although everyone may hope for good news after receiving an annual physical, such examinations carry more significance in the military. In fact, a medical evaluation may influence the course of a military member’s career, including whether he or she might be eligible for certain benefits, promotions, or even admittance into certain military programs. Conversely, an incorrect health rating may clear a military member for duties for which he or she is no longer able or fit to perform. 

Can a legal action be brought against a commanding officer?

Does a service member have legal recourse when he or she believes that a commanding officer has acted improperly or illegally? As an attorney that focuses on military law, I know that Article 138 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice provides some protection. In some situations, a service member may be able to file a complaint against the officer.
