Maxwell Air Force Bases’ Air University Can’t Put An End To Misuse of the UCMJ
Leadership development is at the heart of our nation’s professional military and Air University is no exception. This University which operates out of Maxwell AFB serves as the intellectual and leadership-development center of the Air and Space Forces. Simply put, this is where Air and Space Force leaders come to hone their ability to lead and manage their respective branches. They do an amazing job, but as military court martial defense attorneys, we can testify that they have unfortunately been unable to purge the Air Force command structure of UCMJ misuse and abuse.
Is My Career Over If I Am Under Investigation or Facing a Court Martial?
What Types of UCMJ Charges Can The Bilecki Law Group Help Me Defend?
These include charges such as fraternization, unauthorized absence (AWOL), disobeying a lawful order, conduct unbecoming an officer, and much more. If we could waive a magic wand and get commands across this nation to enforce articles of the UCMJ consistently, it would be here in the punitive articles.
There are times where we defend an Airman against such charges and at least we understand where and why the charge was levied. Then, there are times where the charges seemed to have been dished out in an arbitrary and capricious manner with no rhyme or reason other than personal choice. We applaud the good work the Air University out of Maxwell is doing for leadership development, but we’ll send them a gift package if they can get this one right.
