Is SOCO the right contact? The Standards of Conduct Office provides ethics guidance to personnel in the Office of the Secretary of Defense (OSD). If you are not assigned to OSD, your local Judge Advocate General or legal office is the most appropriate place for you to receive authoritative ethics guidance. If you do not know whom to contact locally, please try contacting the appropriate Service headquarter ethics office:

Air Force: usaf.pentagon.saf-gc.mbx.SAF-GCA-Ethics-Workflow@mail.mil
Army: usarmy.pentagon.hqda-ogc.mbx.ef@mail.mil
Navy & Marine Corps: ethics@navy.mil

If you do not have an appropriate contact for your Defense agency/organization, SOCO is happy to forward your inquiry as appropriate.
