USAG Daegu is an American Army garrison headquartered some 200 miles south of Seoul in South Korea’s Nam District, on the outskirts of Daegu City. USAG Daegu serves an enclave of four U.S. Army bases, including Camps Henry, George, Waegwan, and Walker. Over 1,000 U.S. service members and their families are associated with USAG Daegu.
The vast majority of service members representing USAG Daegu will never know what it feels like to be accused of a criminal offense under the UCMJ. For those that do however, the situation can become a living nightmare almost overnight.
- The men and women of USAG Daegu are thousands of miles from home, far from friends and family. Under such extreme pressure, many give up and confess their crimes, all but ending their military career and jeopardizing their civilian futures.
- Many of them have been in the Army for years, even a decade or longer. If they’re convicted, they will lose the benefits they’ve accrued over the years. Over the course of their lifetime, this could be tens and even hundreds of thousands of dollars.
- A conviction for many UCMJ offenses could result in anywhere from a few months to a life in prison. To avoid maximum time, many of these service members will confess. They never realize that, with the proper representation, they could have escaped jail altogether.
