Colonel Jack Farr was an Army reserve officer, specializing in military intelligence, who was deployed to the camp Camp Delta at the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.[1][2]

Colonel Farr was the fourth serviceman charged with violating security procedures at Guantanamo detention base.[1][2] The others were Captain James Yee, a Muslim chaplain, and Ahmed F. Mehalba, Arabic translators.

Farr was charged with “wrongfully transporting classified material without the proper security container on or around October 11”, and lying to investigators.

Because Farr did not represent a "flight risk" he was not arrested or suspended. In contrast to Farr, Yee and Ahmad were held in solitary confinement.
