Experienced Fort Campbell Court Martial Attorney to Protect your Rights
Well known for its elite parachute team, the Screaming Eagles, as well

is admirable. However, there have been incidents where personnel have
been called up for disciplinary hearings or even charged with criminal
conduct. In such situations, the serviceman/ woman needs the support of
Fort Campbell Military Criminal Defense Lawyer like Joseph Jordan. Mr. Jordan has helped military personnel across the
United States and abroad understand their legal rights when facing UCMJ
hearings, courts-martial, criminal charges and tribunal hearings.
A Brief History of Fort Campbell
This U.S. Army installation is named after General William Bowen Campbell
of the Union Army who was also the last Tennessee Whig Governor. Construction
of this camp was initiated in 1942 and in the same year the installation's
first residents had settled in. During the word War II, this installation
was the training location for the 20th, 12
th and 14
th Armored Divisions, the 25
th Infantry Division as well as the Headquarters IV Armored Corps. In 1950,
the camp became a permanent U.S. military installation.
This base encompasses the Sabalauski Air Assault School which is also home
to the Parachute demonstration team that has earned numerous accolades
for Fort Campbell. This demo team was the first such to be established
back in 1958. In 1984, the 101
st command group formed the famed Screaming Eagles, their full time parachute team.
Present Day Fort Campbell
Today, Fort Campbell is home to the only air assault division in the world- the 101
st Airborne Division. Six major tenant units are based here. These include
the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (ABN), 5th Special Forces
Group (Airborne), 52nd Ordnance Group, Installation Management Command
(IMCOM), U.S. Army Medical Command (MECOM), and Network Enterprise Technology
Command (NETCOM). In addition, Fort Campbell also has two Air Force tent
units- the Detachment 4-18 Weather Squadron and the 19th Air Support Operation
Squadron (ASOS). Other units based here at present include the U.S. Army
Criminal Investigation Division Command, AMC Logistics Assistance Office,
U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division Command, 902nd Counter Intelligence
Field Office and the U.S. Army 2nd Judicial Circuit Detachment.
Fort Campbell in the News
The base has, unfortunately, been in the news for the wrong reasons more
than once in the past when serious criminal incidents have taken place
here. In 2005, Private Nicholas Mikel caused the death of a group of soldiers
when he opened fire on them. He was later sentenced to 25 years imprisonment.
More recently, Sergeant Brent Burke was charged with violation of the
UCMJ code as well as Article 129 and 134 and sentenced to life in prison
without parole for premeditated murder.
Perhaps it is this history that prompts Fort Campbell authorities to take
a very serious view of even minor misdemeanors. The base conducts programs
such as the recent observance of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, aimed
at curbing undesirable behavior among the stationed personnel.
For servicemen and women stationed at this base the stringent regulations
may be both a boon and a bane. Innocent personnel may find themselves
charged with violations, facing courts-martial. Taking guidance from an expert
Fort Campbell Military Criminal Defense Attorney like Joseph Jordan helps them protect their rights in the best possible way.
