FORT SAM HOUSTON COURT MARTIAL ATTORNEY ENSURES LEGAL PROTECTION FOR ENLISTED MEMBERS
When it comes to competent legal help, perhaps no individual deserves it more than the enlisted members of the United States Army who have committed their lives to the protection of the country and its people. This has been the calling of highly experienced Fort Sam Houston court martial attorney Joseph Jordan. Mr. Jordan has to his credit the successful acquittal of several innocent servicemen and women who were charged with serious crimes like sexual assault or relatively minor ones tried under Article 15 hearings. As a former Serviceman himself, Mr. Jordan is justly passionate about ensuring that all members of the Fort Sam Houston Texas base have access to knowledgeable legal counsel. This ensures that they can present their case in an effective manner.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF FORT SAM HOUSTON TEXAS
It was in 1845 that the foundation was laid for Fort Sam Houston Texas although the base received this name officially only by year 1890. Over the years since its establishment this base has seen several expansions. Today, with over 800 such structures it stands as the largest collection of historic buildings in the DoD. Fort Sam Houston Texas holds a place of honor as the 'Home of Military Medicine' thanks to the Medical Education and Training campus situated onsite. The concept of military aviation can also be traced back to this base.
Named after General Sam Houston, hero of the San Jacinto battle and first President to lead the Republic of Texas, Fort Sam Houston also enjoys an interesting distinction. This U.S. Army post continues to be an active military installation, carrying out a key role in the defense of the country. At the same time it is a link to the past as a National Historic Landmark where one can find some of the oldest structures in any Army installation.
PRESENT DAY FORT SAM HOUSTON TEXAS
More than 32,000 enlisted members call Fort Sam Houston Texas (or Fort Sam) home. The major units stationed here include the 5 th Recruiting Brigade, the U.S. Army Medical Command, the U.S. Army Center Brigade, the 1110 th Signal Battalion, the 147 th Medical Logistics Battalion and many more. About 4790 student Personnel, 7230 Civilian Employees and 3136 Reserve Components are based here in addition to the 70710 family members of Army personnel. The Brooke Army Medical Center complex or BAMC is a well-known landmark within the Fort Sam base.
In June, the base was in the news when a female active- duty captain was injured after a gunman fired multiple times outside the medical training HQ. Although this is the first shooting within the base in 20 years, it brings to light the need for more stringent security measures here. Investigations have revealed that the incident may have been the result of a personal disagreement between the gunman and the injured captain. Incidents like these underline the need for the enlisted members to have ready access to a qualified and experienced Fort Sam Houston military defense attorney who can present the facts of the case clearly and objectively so that person at fault can be punished appropriately.
