Fury quote

(no subject)

I have two related questions that I'm really hoping someone can help me with:

1. Who decides whether someone should be classified as missing in action, deserter or killed in action if they go missing during an operation (or to ask in a way that makes sense: would Sheppard be the one to say how Ford was classified after he got hopped up on Wraith enzyme, or would it be someone like Landry?)

2. If the leader of the operation had evidence to change that status, how would they go about doing so? For example, would they let whoever was in charge back home know, or could they make the decision?

Hope that makes sense, and thanks in advance for any help!
