Overview and history of Nellis AFB
Nellis Air Force Base is part of the
US Air Force's Air Combat Command located to the north-east of Las Vegas, Nevada.
The base covers over 14,000 acres, with an additional 7000 acres of airspace
intended for military flight operations.
Originally, the base was a Las Vegas Army Air Field and the site of the
Army Air Corps Flexible Gunnery School. After the end of World War II,
the base was closed in 1947, and reopened two years later with a new name
paying homage to Lieutenant William Harrell Nellis. It initially served
as an advanced pilot training base and later started F-86 flight training
and gunnery for pilots. The base played an important role in preparing
airmen for successful air attacks during the Korean War.
Today, it trains pilots in composite strike forces in all types of aircrafts
that are part of the U.S Air Force inventory. The base comprises seven
units, with the 57
th Wing being its operational element. It also has over 50 big and small
UCMJ actions at Nellis AFB
Nellis AFB is a census-designated place that includes military family housing,
lodging and dormitories. It is home to a diverse racial population and
has a household median income of less than $40,000.
Over the years, the base has witnessed its share of serious UCMJ charges.
While article 15 actions are quite common at the base, airmen have also
faced courts-martial on grave charges.
The courts-martial at Nellis AFB have revolved around a variety of UCMJ
crimes. Wrongful possession of child pornography, distribution of controlled
substances, and misuse of military identification cards are some instances.
It is important to note that, regardless of the nature of the charge or
complexity of the case, a reliable Nellis AFB UCMJ lawyer will approach
every case with meticulousness and an uncompromising attitude. The support
of a seasoned attorney can make a big difference to the outcome of the
case. This is precisely why accused airmen should not waste a moment's
time to seek professional legal counsel.
The US military has a no-tolerance attitude to dereliction of duty and
places high value on code of conduct. Airmen at the receiving end of accusations
often feel like nobody is on their side, and are often cornered into pleading
guilty. The fact of the matter is, airmen can explore multiple legal options
to emerge unscathed or at least escape serious penalties for their alleged crimes.
