"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.

Brief History of Special Operations

Each branch of the military has special operations unit to conduct unconventional warfare. These specially trained units are sent out to complete tasks that conventional forces could not complete. One of the most well-known examples would be the identification, hunting, and elimination of terrorists. Special operations units often operate at night in a low-profile manner, using the elements of speed, surprise, and action against an unsuspecting target.

In 1987, the U.S. Department of Defense created the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM), mandating a new four-star command to carry out assigned missions by special operations units. USSOCOM has the following responsibilities and authorities as decided by Congress:

  • Develop special operations strategy, doctrine, and tactics
  • Prepare and submit budget proposals for Special Operations Forces (SOF)
  • Exercise authority, direction and control over special operations expenditures
  • Train assigned forces
  • Conduct specialized courses of instruction
  • Validate requirements
  • Establish requirement priorities
  • Ensure interoperability of equipment and forces
  • Formulate and submit intelligence support requirements
  • Monitor SOF officers' promotions, assignments, retention, training, and professional military education
  • Ensure Special Operations Forces' combat readiness
  • Monitor Special Operations Forces' preparedness to carry out assigned missions
  • Develop and acquire special operations-peculiar equipment, materiel, supplies, and services

These responsibilities prove that anyone who aspires to serve in Special Operations Forces must undergo extensive, grueling training and prove that he or she is the best of the best.
