Camp Red Cloud
Camp Red Cloud is a U.S. Army base located near the city of Uijeongbu, just north of Seoul, Korea. The installation serves as the main headquarters for the 2nd Infantry Division and its supporting units, and is home to thousands of U.S. Service Members and their families.
The vast majority of service members stationed at Camp Red Cloud will serve their country honorably and return home without issue. Others will not be so lucky. For the men and women that are accused of a criminal offense under the UCMJ here at Camp Red Cloud and elsewhere in South Korea, the situation can turn from bad to worse almost instantaneously.
- The government will remain vague about your status and even hide the fact you’re a suspect. But behind the scenes, they’re gathering evidence, speaking with witnesses and preparing their strategy. By the time the hammer falls, it is often too late.
- South Korea is one of America’s most important regional allies. Any criminal offense committed on South Korean soil is dealt with extreme prejudice to ensure that alliance continues. This often means more resources to convict you, and harsher sentencing than anywhere else in the world.
- Unfortunately a dishonorable discharge may be the least of your worries. Years if not decades in prison is a distinct possibility depending on the crime. Loss of your pay and allowances could leave you in terminal debt. You could be placed on a sex offender list for the rest of your life.
You are thousands of miles from home. But allies are closer than you think. If you require legal representation at Camp Red Cloud, then contact the law offices of Bilecki & Tipon TODAY.
USAG Camp Red Cloud History and Court-Martial Activity
Camp Red Cloud—originally Camp Jackson—was established during the Korean War, and quickly became one of the most important installations on the peninsula and a major gateway between Seoul and the DMZ. In 1957, it was renamed after Corporal Mitchell Red Cloud, Jr, who stormed an enemy bunker during the Korean War, killing dozens of the enemy.
Today, Camp Red Cloud remains essential to U.S. Military power on the peninsula, supporting the economic, transportation and industrial interests of both South Korea and the network of U.S. military installations spread throughout the country.
Camp Red Cloud, along with Camps Casey, Stanley, Hovey and others, are jointly referred to as Area I by U.S. Military serving in the region.
- Established: 1950s
- Location: Okinawa, Japan
- Garrison: 2nd Infantry Division and supporting units, 55th MP Company, 604th Air Support Operations Squadron
Court-Martial Activity: Camp Red Cloud is at constant risk for sting operations carried about by the military’s law enforcement. Aggressive law enforcement tactics have contributed to an uptick in courts-martial related to sex crimes, drug crimes and financial fraud. Service members stationed in Korea on unaccompanied tours are under constant threat of being audited for potential OHA fraud.

The service men and women stationed at USAG Camp Red Cloud need only be in the wrong place at the wrong time to be accused of a criminal offense and threated by a court-martial.
