The inspecting officer shall inspect every item of United States and state military property in the possession of each organization of the Kansas national guard, and will verify the same with the accounts rendered by each responsible officer; the inspecting officer shall have authority to pass upon the serviceableness or suitability of each item of property submitted to him or her for such inspection, and to order property deemed by him or her to be unserviceable or unsuitable shipped at once to the state arsenal.
