  Chain of command - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In a military context, the chain of command is the line of authority and responsibility along which orders are passed.
For example, a common soldier who has difficulty carrying out an order is likely to be disciplined for not observing the chain of command if he skips the officer who is in direct command of him and directly appeals to a higher-ranked officer in his chain of command.
For example, an officer of a given military unit cannot directly command common soldiers of another unit, because this officer is outside of their chain of command.

Bowman, a 31-year veteran, claimed in a lawsuit against the city and chief that he was wrongly reassigned in April 2004 because of his investigation into the drive-by shooting death of Tamara Greene, a 27-year-old stripper known as Strawberry.
