Defending Soldiers' Rights

Why Good Soldiers at Ft. Bragg Still Need Excellent Court Martial Defense

If there is one notion that we would like to permanently dispel from military culture it is that only bad soldiers get court martialed. Nothing could be further from the truth and thankfully, the sum of modern military history is ready to back us up on this one. Let us take the curious case of Medal of Honor recipient Lewis Millett as just one such case. Prior to graduating High School, Lewis Millett joined the National Guard in 193 8 and saw it as his duty to be ready for what he was sure to be the coming war. In 1940, he then joined the US Army Air Corps only to be devastated when President Roosevelt reaffirmed that America would not be entering the war.

That’s when Millett did wh at any good soldier would do. He deserted his unit and joined a Canadian artillery unit with hopes of seeing combat. By the time he arrived in Europe, the U.S. had finally entered the war and Millett was allowed to transfer to an American Field Artillery u nit in Ireland. Seeing combat in North Africa, Millett earned the Silver Star for driving a burning half track full of ammunition away from his fellow soldiers and would later go on to shoot down a Me – 109 with a separate half track mounted machine gun. Needless to say, the man was born to fight.

That’s when his desertion caught up with him and under pressure from superiors, he was court martialed for desertion and fined $52 dollars. A few weeks later, he was promoted to 2nd Lieutenant. As if prior acts of gallantry were not enough, Millet would go on to serve in Korea where he would lead what is now considered the last great American bayonet charge. For this action he was awarded the Medal of Honor. So let us not pretend that only bad soldiers can run a foul of the UCMJ. In fact, we’d submit that good soldiers are in need of good military court martial defense more than any other.

Combatting UCMJ Misuse

Good Soldiers Can Face Very Serious Charges

From mere allegations to human error, we’ve seen some of the best soldiers face some of the most serious charges and win their day in court. In fact, we pride ourselves and stake our entire legal reputation on our ability to win in court. We are not looking for a plea or a compromise. We are looking to win. So let’s run through a few of the charges that we beat in court every year.

  1. UCMJ Article 121 (Fraud and Larceny): We tackle cases like BAH fraud, extortion, and more, recognizing the impact of false accusations and human error. With missing military equipment being a significant issue, our defense is critical for those unjustly blamed, aiming to safeguard careers against systemic faults.
  2. UCMJ Article 128 (Assault and Violent Crime): Our representation extends to charges of murder, manslaughter, and self-defense. Understanding the innate capabilities of trained soldiers, we strive to prevent career-ending consequences from altercations that escalate, emphasizing the need for a fair defense.
  3. UCMJ Article 112a (Drug Crimes): We defend against drug-related offenses, acknowledging the complexities of substance regulation within the military. Recognizing the challenges faced by servicemembers, particularly in special operations, we argue that such charges should not define a military career, advocating for understanding and rehabilitation.
  4. Punitive Articles of the UCMJ 77-134 (Military Specific Offenses): Covering charges from AWOL to conduct unbecoming, we highlight the case of Lewis Millet, a Medal of Honor recipient and court-martialed soldier, to illustrate that even the most dedicated can face legal challenges. Our goal is to protect the careers of those who have dedicated themselves to service, regardless of the accusations.
