The Value of a “Good Soldier”

In a profession where your every action and decision is watched and recorded, where honor and moral conduct are of the highest importance, it is absolutely reasonable for your past record to hold weight in a trial where your credibility is called into question.

Recently, however, Congress has decided to eliminate what is called the “good soldier” defense from court-martial proceedings. Not allowing a soldier’s record and conduct to act as evidence for reasonable doubt, especially in cases where there is little other evidence to consider, strips these accused soldiers of one of their best defenses and leaves honest, good soldiers even more vulnerable to false accusations.
