Define That Term #283

Dictionary_2 Last week's term was jus cogens, which is defined as:

Principles of international law so fundamental that no nation may ignore them or attempt to contract out of them through treaties. For example, genocide and participating in a slave trade are thought to be jus cogens.

Edward Wiest's guess was pretty much spot on.

Today's term is:

Feres Doctrine.

As always, educated guesses are welcome.  Dictionaries are not.
