US SERVICE MEMBER AT RAMSTEIN AIRBASE GEAR UP TO FIGHT UCMJ ABUSE
For many, Ramstein Air Base in Germany might seem like a relic of a Cold War long past. However, the recent invasion of Ukraine by Russia has put the security situation in Europe back in focus and Ramstein Air Base is likely to see more troops pass through than it has in decades. With that influx of personnel, you can expect that run-ins with the UCMJ will increase as well and military service members must gear up and keep watch against the abuse and misuse of the UCMJ. That’s because the military justice system does not exist for the purpose of pursuing justice. Rather, the military justice system exists to preserve military order and discipline. For that to work, some poor service member must be made a public example of if you’re not ready for the fight, that example might be made out of you. It’s unfortunate, because should a Cold War go hot, the military service members who know who to bend the occasional rule are the same ones who thrive in the chaotic combat environment. If you need any evidence of that fact, you need not look further than a field not too far from Ramstein in World War 2 Germany.

Fighting Back Against Bogus Charges Under the UCMJ
We highlight the story of Edward Carter because even if what he did with the prisoners was against the rules, few would say that he was wrong for what he did. After all, it was the Germans that were shooting at their fellow soldiers and he was just walking behind them. Moreover, it was only after a 1990’s review of minority service members records that Carter would receive his due honor. Sadly, he passed three decades earlier without any knowledge that he would receive the nation’s highest military honor. It goes to show that the military doesn’t always get it right and you may very well find yourself on the wrong end of the military justice system out of Ramstein Air Base this very minute. We won’t take this sitting down and we’ll fight for you as hard as Edward Carter fought for this nation.
