Fort Belvoir, VA
It Takes Remarkable Courage For Fort Belvoir Soldiers To Stand Up Against Abuse of the UCMJ
Few who have never been to Fort Belvoir realize it, but Fort Belvoir is an absolutely massive human services operation staffed by both civilian and military personnel. In fact, there are twice as many employees of Fort Belvoir than there are at the Pentagon. Now, the civilian workforce has a slight edge over their military counterparts when it comes to workplace discipline. Namely that civilians are not subject to the UCMJ. They screw up at work and they just get fired. When a uniformed member of the military screws up, they could lose pay, retirement benefits and even their freedom. When appropriately wielded by command, the UCMJ is an asset. When it is used in an arbitrary and capricious manner, it is a cruel and heartless tool.
When a Soldier or other uniformed member of the military finds themselves on the wrong side of that equation, it takes remarkable courage to stand up and fight. It is not easy to take on the military justice system and that truth is very much why we exist as a law firm. That is to help you make a stand. We draw a great deal of our inspiration from the history of our great military and for this, we draw upon the words and deeds of Master Sergeant Roddie Edmonds.
Fighting UCMJ Abuse At Fort Belvoir Isn’t Easy, But It’s Right
