An Overview of
Eglin Air Force Base is the nerve center for all Air Force armaments, handling
the development, testing, acquisition and deployment of non-nuclear weapons
delivered by air. It is an Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC) base responsible
for providing logistics and management support in order to keep weapon
systems ready for war. It is one among the ten AFMC host bases in the country.
Eglin AFB is located about three miles south-west of Valparaiso, Florida.
The base was established in 1935 and pays homage to Lieutenant Colonel
Frederick I. Eglin who lost his life after his Northrop A-17 pursuit aircraft
crashed en route to Maxwell Field from Langley.
The base has a residential population of over 8,000, with over 2,359 family
housing units for military members. Unmarried members live in one of seven
dormitories at the base. A unique feature of the base is the Northwest
Florida Regional Airport providing passenger airline service.
Some of the major units at Eglin AFB include the 96
th Test Wing, 7 Special Forces Group, 33d Fighter Wing, 6
th Ranger Training Battalion and 53
rd Wing. It is home to the McKinley Climatic Laboratory, which carries out
severe weather aircraft testing. The base is responsible for planning
and testing air armament, control systems and navigation systems.
Military Crimes at Eglin AFB
Airmen at Eglin AFB have come under the scanner for a variety of UCMJ crimes.
Instances include abuse of the mood-altering drug Spice, wrongful distribution
of controlled substances, absence without leave and sharing of child pornography
online, to name some. When service members are charged with a military
crime, they become the victims of the government machinery, which almost
always adopts a ruthless stance and rarely gives defendants a chance at
redemption. Court martial attorneys understand that individuals who join
the armed forces do it for the right reasons – pride and patriotism.
On the flipside, they have an extremely strict code of behavior to adhere
to. When in the dock, their career and indeed their lives, are on the line.
No matter what the nature of the crime, every service member has the right
to legal representation and until such time as proven guilty, shall be
considered innocent. Here's where the professional services of an
Eglin AFB UCMJ lawyer can make a huge difference. High-caliber trial skills can turn the tables
on the prosecution and give service members a new lease of life.
