OVERVIEW OF CANNON AFB
Located in New Mexico, Cannon AFB is a major installation of the Air Combat Command. This base is named after World War II combat commander General John Cannon who was also a former chief of United States air force in Europe. The base was originally a civilian passenger terminal which was established in the 1920s. Known as Portair Field, this field was renamed as Clovis Municipal Airport a decade later and then transformed into Clovis Air base when the country plunged into the World War II. It was in 1957, that the Cannon AFB name was given to this base.
The host unit here is the 27th Special Operations Wing or SOW which is a member of the AFSOC. The unit undertakes specialized operations, infiltration/ exfiltration operations, precision fire support, re-supply of special ops forces and more.
In view of the recent focus on sexual harassment incidences within armed forces, Cannon AFB too has come out with programs and policies to protect its staff. Awareness programs are being organized here to ensure that such incidents do not occur and that, if they do, the victim gets immediate assistance and justice. However, at times these mechanisms can be misused and innocent airmen may find themselves bearing the brunt of intense scrutiny or even an official investigation. It is in such cases that an experienced defense lawyer can prove to be of invaluable help.

Presenting your case in an effective manner is critical in any hearing but when you are a part of the United States Air Force, this assumes even more importance. The reason is that the air force has access to top notch legal professionals and it has none of the financial constraints that limit your abilities. The prosecution has immense experience and all of this comes into play against you during the hearing. This is especially true when you are facing serious charges, which may be decided through a court martial proceeding, Article 120 proceeding, prosecution for drug crimes, murder/ manslaughter or similar charges. In such situations it is imperative not just that you present facts in your favor with conviction but also that you avoid making statements that lower your chances of proving your innocence.
