USAG Camp Casey
U.S. Army Garrison Camp Casey, home over 6,000 U.S. military personnel of the 2nd Infantry Division, has played a role in the defense of South Korea and the U.S. for decades. Along with Camp Hovey, it is the northernmost American garrison in the country, located between the Seoul and the DMZ.
Camp Casey and the men and women that defend it remain under constant threat of attack from South Korea’s northern neighbor. But for many service members, the real threat isn’t from a foreign nation. It’s from their own government in the form of false sexual assault allegations, aggressive interrogation techniques and heavy-handed sentencing for criminal offenses under the UCMJ.
- The military’s prosecutors have maintained a conviction rate of around 90% for decades. They will maintain that percentage even if it means skirting the law to prove your guilt.
- You are up against an opponent with unlimited monetary resources, who can call upon an army of paralegals, and has access to massive forensic labs and a network of forensic specialists.
- Law enforcement will work closely with prosecutors, seeking out damning evidence against you and even ignoring evidence that does not suit that narrative of guilt.
Before you can fight back, you must know what you’re up against. Do not delay. Contact the law firm of Bilecki & Tipon TODAY for a confidential consultation into your case.
USAG Camp Casey History and Court-Martial Activity
Camp Casey began as a U.S. Army camp site during the final years of the Korean War, and today encompasses some 3,500+ acres of land near the city of Dongducheon, located north of the South Korean capital, Seoul. The camp is named after Major Hugh Boyd Casey, who was killed in action near the site in 1952.
A large-scale relocation of Camp Casey’s 2nd Infantry Division garrison to Camp Humphreys is scheduled to be completed by 2019. But Camp Casey will continue to be garrisoned by at least one brigade for the foreseeable future.
- Established: 1952
- Location: Dongducheon, South Korea
- Population: 6,000+
- Garrison: 2nd Infantry Division and supporting units (72nd Armored Regiment, 210th Field Artillery Brigade, 9th Infantry Regiment)
Court-Martial Activity: Camp Casey, like many other military installations in South Korea, Japan, and the Pacific, has been a primary target for the military’s sting operations over the last decade. Drug charges (possession, use and distribution), sexual assault charges, and financial fraud (OHA and BAH fraud) are the most common criminal offenses we see at Camp Casey.
