Talked to IG, CoC flipped ****.?
I also went because I wanted a third party to give me answers and I figured IG would have experience with that sort of thing. It was a short meeting, I didn't ask to investigate or anything, and the rep basically told me he thought it was either a mistake or something I should ask the CO about.
Come today, I find out that IG notified my CoC to follow up on it. They flipped ****; I'm on convalescent leave for testicular surgery and apparently that was cancelled, they thought I'd tried to have a complaint filed against them, etc.
I know I've opened a can of worms, but I need to know several things for I go into work tomorrow. One, is there any reprisal that can be put in place against a soldier for doing this? I realize I did skip the chain of command, but I'm not sure of the rules regarding this.
Secondly, is that standard procedure for IG? I wouldn't have done it if I knew that my CoC would receive a complaint. I basically wanted advice.
Third, any hints on how to defuse this situation?
Thanks in advance for any help.
