Tripler Army Medical Center
Tripler Army Medical Center—the largest military hospital in the Pacific and Asia—serves tens of thousands of active duty, reserve, and veteran service members every year. The good it serves the military community, however, is often shadowed by the constant threat of court-martial activity.
TAMC is no stranger to courts-martial, administrative separations, GOMORs and Article 15 hearings. The hospital employs hundreds of military staff, and accusations of criminal offenses—from sexual assault to drug crimes—happen every year. The threat this poses our service members is very real:
- Accusations alone are enough to destroy your reputation and leave others questioning your honor and decency. “Innocent until proven guilty” is often completely ignored by both coworkers and law enforcement alike.
- Most UCMJ offenses all but guarantee a bad-conduct or dishonorable discharge. Even if you are not thrown out of the military, an adverse administrative action could mean you’ll be passed up for promotions year after year after year.
- The loss of your military career is often the tip of the iceberg. Decades of incarceration, massive fines and sex offender status are all possibilities under UCMJ law.
If you are based at Tripler Army Medical Center and are threatened by judicial or non-judicial military punishment, then you need immediate legal representation. Call the Hawaii-based law offices of Bilecki & Tipon TODAY for a free consultation.
