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.

A Brief Overview of Fort Jackson

Fort Jackson came into existence as Camp Jackson in 1917 at the time of the U.S. entering the First World War. The end of the war resulted in the shutting down of Camp Jackson on 25 th April, 1955. It was later revived at the time of the Second World War. It was the Korean War which forced the activation of the post which continues to operate till today.

As far as the Initial Entry Training Centers are concerned, For Jackson is not only the biggest but a highly active center in the U.S. Army. Almost half the soldiers including 70 percent of the females about to enter the U.S. Army are trained at Fort Jackson. The aim of the base is to ready new soldiers and prepare them for their role in the Army.

Present Day Fort Jackson

While several other military installations have undergone downsizing or have shut down completely in the past years, Fort Jackson on the other hand has opened many new training schools and institutions including the National Center for Credibility Assessment and the U.S. Army Soldier Support Institute.

Recently, the forty sixth commanding officer of Fort Jackson, Brig. Gen. Bradley A. Becker, addressed a huge crowd at the breakfast meeting of the Greater Lexington Chamber of Commerce. He spoke about the possible impact of a drop in army personnel on the local area community. Out of the 3,500 civilian officers operating from the base, 40 percent term Lexington County as their home.

As mentioned earlier, almost 75,000 individuals are trained at Fort Jackson each year. These individuals could go on to become new soldier recruits, chaplains or mechanics. Approximately 200,000 people come to visit the base every year for various kinds of events and graduations. In fact the base was recently in news for its brilliant fireworks showcase at the Fourth of July celebrations.

According to Becker, irrespective of some threatening changes, the number of soldiers trained at the base will increase in 2014, from 45,000 to 47,000.
