Defending Soldiers' Rights

Soldiers at Fort Bliss Are Fighting Back Against Court Martials and Misuse of the UCMJ

Appearances can often mislead, especially regarding the UCMJ, where even honorable soldiers may face court martial, challenging the notion that only misconduct leads to such trials. The military justice system, driven by assumptions and the reluctance of prosecutors to appear mistaken, can wrongfully implicate commendable service members.

The story of William Crawford, a Medal of Honor recipient from Texas’ 36th Infantry Division in World War II, exemplifies this. Despite his heroics in Italy, leading to a posthumous Medal of Honor awarded to his father, Crawford was captured and presumed dead. Post-war, he lived a quiet life as an Air Force Academy janitor, his valor unrecognized by students for years until discovered. His late recognition by President Ronald Reagan in 1984, long after his brave deeds, illustrates the unpredictable journey of military honor and the hidden depths of those around us. Crawford’s story is a testament to humility and the complex narrative of military service.

Combatting UCMJ Misuse

What Kind of Charges Can Fort Bliss Soldiers Fight Under the UCMJ?

The American and military justice systems are built on the principle that anyone can contest their charges. However, the military system, averse to losing, may discourage defendants by suggesting their case is hopeless. This is often a tactic to secure a win rather than a truth. Contrary to this perception, fighting against any charge is a fundamental right. Let’s discuss the types of charges we defend against.

  1. UCMJ Article 120 & 134 (Sex Offenses): With the military addressing past sexual assault issues, allegations now often equate to perceived guilt. We advocate for the innocent, stressing the importance of a thorough defense to ensure true justice is served for all parties involved.
  2. UCMJ Article 121 (Fraud and Larceny): In situations of missing military property or BAH fraud, accusations can hastily be made without proper evidence, damaging careers based on mere perception. We aim to uncover the full story, defending those wrongfully accused.
  3. UCMJ Article 128 (Assault and Violent Crime): Fights within the military can escalate quickly, leading to serious charges. We understand the dynamics of military interactions and defend service members to prevent momentary lapses from defining their futures.
  4. UCMJ Article 112a (Drug Crimes): Positioned near the border, Fort Bliss service members may find themselves entangled in drug-related charges, often more severe for them than civilians involved. We fight to reveal the complete context behind these allegations.
  5. Punitive Articles of the UCMJ 77-134 (Military Specific Offenses): While the UCMJ maintains order, its misuse can lead to unwarranted charges against service members. We encourage soldiers to contest charges vigorously, embodying the spirit of resilience as exemplified by historical figures like William Crawford, rather than conceding to guilt prematurely.
