Ei Incumbit Probation Qui Dicit.

Proof lies on him who asserts, not on him who denies. The concept is that one is innocent until proven guilty. Regardless of what the law says about reasonable doubt, there is an unwritten presumption within the ranks of the military that if you are charged with sexual assault, then you are guilty. The stakes are your life! Your military counsel works for the same military that charged you. Consider that as you choose who represents you in your potentially life altering case.

A Brief History of Lackland AFB

Lackland AFB is the Air Force's only site where non-prior service Airmen of the Air Force Reserve, the Air National Guard and the regular Air Force undergo the basics of military training. Originally a part of Kelly Air Force Base, Lackland Army Air Field came into existence in 1946. Renamed as the Lackland Air Force Base in 1948, this AFB is also called the 'Gateway to the Air Force'. It was in this year that the base established its foothold in the annals of military history as a training base and formalized training center for basic training. During the Korean and Vietnam wars the increased mobility demands were met by the trainers at the Lackland AFB. In spite of a maximum capacity of 25,000, the base trained roughly 55,000 airmen in the 1950's to ensure that trained personnel were always at the ready to defend the country.

The base has witnessed incredible expansion over the years of its existence. Some of the landmark additions to the base include the language school, sentry dog program and air force marksmanship school apart from the Department of Cryptographic Training.

Present Day Lackland AFB

Lackland Air Force Base is home to over 40,000 people of whom nearly 15,000 are active duty members. The 37 th Training Wingover, the 433d Airlift Wing, the 24 th AF A1 Division, the 319 Training Squadron, 91 st NMS, the 802 nd Civil Engineering Squadron and many more active units are stationed here. Over 120 units are based out of the Lackland AFB.

In June this year, the Lackland Air Force Base was rocked by a sex scandal in which several Trainers were allegedly involved. Most recently, Senior Airman Lira was sentenced to six months imprisonment after a guilty plea to the charges. Five former Commanders and a senior non- commissioned officer also came under scrutiny and they were disciplined through UCMJ hearings for their role in this scandal.

The scandal has brought the issue of sexual assault and trauma under the spotlight at Lackland AFB and several initiatives have been taken to prevent any such incidents from occurring again. For enlisted personnel stationed at the base, it is critical to know how to reach out to a competent and experienced Lackland sexual assault court martial to prove their innocence in such charges.
