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.

Whitman AFB

A brief history of Whitman AFB

Whitman AFB was activated in 1942, during the 2 nd World War as the Sedalia Glider Base. Later that year, it came to be called as the Sedalia Army Air Field and it was given over to the 12 th Troop Carrier Command (Army Air Force). The air field was used to train paratroopers and pilots on gilder tactics.

In 1951, the air field was made a part of the Strategic Air Command. The SAC created the 4224 th Air Base Squadron and a new base was constructed on the land, called the Sedalia AFB. In 1952, the 4224 th was inactivated and the base was turned over to the 340 th Bombardment Wing.

The air base was renamed as the Whitman Air Force Base in 1955, after Lt. George A. Whitman, a Sedalia native and the first U.S fighter pilot to die in aerial combat, during the attack on Pearl Harbor.

The first B-2 bomber touched down at Whitman AFB in 1993.

Present day Whitman AFB

Whitman AFB is home to the 509 th Bomb Wing, a critical component of the Air Force Global Strike Command. The 509 th Air Wing operates 19 B-2 Spirit Bombers. The B-2 are capable of hitting high value targets, which cannot be reached by conventional air crafts or whose defense is so strong that there is a high risk of losing the asset, if the target is attacked.

Though Whitman is called an Air Force Base, it contains units from the Army and Navy also. The other units here are the 131 st Bomb Wing (Missouri Air National Guard), the 442 nd Fighter Wing (Air Force Reserve Command), the 1/135 th Aviation Battalion (Missouri Army National Guard), the Mobile Inshore Undersea Warfare Unit 114 (U.S Navy Reserve) and others.
