A Little Law

§ 432.135. ASSAULTING OR WILFULLY DISOBEYING SUPERIOR COMMISSIONED OFFICER.

A person subject to this chapter shall be punished as a court-martial directs if the person:

(1) strikes his superior commissioned officer or draws or lifts up a weapon or offers any violence against him while in the execution of his office; or

(2) wilfully disobeys a lawful command of his commissioned officer.

Acts 1987, 70th Leg., ch. 147, § 1, eff. Sept. 1, 1987. § 432.137.

FAILURE TO OBEY ORDER OR REGULATION. A person subject to this chapter shall be punished as a court-martial directs if the person:

(1) violates or fails to obey a lawful general order or regulation;

(2) having knowledge of any other lawful order issued by a member of the state military forces that it is the person’s duty to obey, fails to obey the order; or

(3) is derelict in the performance of the person’s duties.

Acts 1987, 70th Leg., ch. 147, § 1, eff. Sept. 1, 1987.

These are from the laws governing the Texas National Guard. They may have been different in 1972, but I doubt it.
