AN OVERVIEW OF EGLIN AFB
Eglin Air Force Base is the nerve center for all Air Force armaments, handling the development, testing, acquisition and deployment of non-nuclear weapons delivered by air. It is an Air Force Materiel Command (AFMC) base responsible for providing logistics and management support in order to keep weapon systems ready for war. It is one among the ten AFMC host bases in the country.
Eglin AFB is located about three miles south-west of Valparaiso, Florida. The base was established in 1935 and pays homage to Lieutenant Colonel Frederick I. Eglin who lost his life after his Northrop A-17 pursuit aircraft crashed en route to Maxwell Field from Langley.
The base has a residential population of over 8,000, with over 2,359 family housing units for military members. Unmarried members live in one of seven dormitories at the base. A unique feature of the base is the Northwest Florida Regional Airport providing passenger airline service.
Some of the major units at Eglin AFB include the 96th Test Wing, 7 Special Forces Group, 33d Fighter Wing, 6th Ranger Training Battalion and 53rd Wing. It is home to the McKinley Climatic Laboratory, which carries out severe weather aircraft testing. The base is responsible for planning and testing air armament, control systems and navigation systems.
MILITARY CRIMES AT EGLIN AFB
Airmen at Eglin AFB have come under the scanner for a variety of UCMJ crimes. Instances include abuse of the mood-altering drug Spice, wrongful distribution of controlled substances, absence without leave and sharing of child pornography online, to name some. When service members are charged with a military crime, they become the victims of the government machinery, which almost always adopts a ruthless stance and rarely gives defendants a chance at redemption. Court martial attorneys understand that individuals who join the armed forces do it for the right reasons – pride and patriotism. On the flipside, they have an extremely strict code of behavior to adhere to. When in the dock, their career and indeed their lives, are on the line.
No matter what the nature of the crime, every service member has the right to legal representation and until such time as proven guilty, shall be considered innocent. Here's where the professional services of an Eglin AFB UCMJ lawyer can make a huge difference. High-caliber trial skills can turn the tables on the prosecution and give service members a new lease of life.
