The soldier has one of the toughest jobs in the world. When he is at war, he has to brave bullets and bombs, so there is always a threat to his life. But perhaps, there is no worse threat than a court martial because an enlisted member would prefer death to dishonor.

If you are put on trial, not only is everything you worked for at stake but if you are convicted, you may be asked to leave the armed forces in disgrace. Worst of all, you may even end up in jail.

If you have been placed in such a position when you are stationed in USAG Wiesbaden, please contact Joseph Jordan immediately. He is a highly experienced UCMJ attorney and he has provided successful legal representation to many armed forces personnel in his long career.


The place on which USAG Wiesbaden stands now was originally occupied by a racetrack. The idea of converting the racetrack into an airfield was first conceived by Joseph Aumann, a retired officer of the Flying Corps in 1926. Three years later, the Wiesbaden-Mainz airport was started. When the Third Reich swept into power in 1933, the airport was used to train Luftwaffe pilots.

In 1936, Wiesbaden airfield was designated as an airbase by the Luftwaffe Headquarters. The Luftwaffe launched a large number of bombing missions on Allied targets from this air base.


The air base was abandoned in 1945, when the Americans breached German defense and managed to reach the air base. In 1948, Wiesbaden air base became the European Headquarters of the U.S Air Force. The airfield was used extensively during the Berlin blockade of 1949, when the U.S Air Force airlifted supplies to the beleaguered city.

In 1976, all USAF units were moved from USAG Wiesbaden to Ramstein Air Base and they were replaced by an Army Mechanized Infantry Brigade. In 1998, the air base was renamed as the Wiesbaden Army Airfield (the airfield was again renamed as Lucius D. Clay Kaserne in 2012). It has also played an important role during the War on Terror.


USAG Wiesbaden is home to the V Corps headquarters, 5th Signal Command, 66th Military Intelligence Brigade, American Forces Network- Wiesbaden, 421st Multifunctional Medical Battalion, 209th Army Liaison Detachment, U.S Army Corps of Engineers and many units of the U.S Air Force.

As of June 14, 2012, the Wiesbaden Military Community was home to more than 17,200 personnel, which included 3000 enlisted men, 3000 civilian workers, 1100 German workers, more than 8500 family members and 1100 retirees.

The United States Army Europe (USAREUR) is also going to be relocated to USAG Wiesbaden soon. When the move is complete, the population of the military community will increase to more than 18,500.


Joseph Jordan has worked as a court martial attorney on a large number of military crimes such as aggravated sexual assault, solicitation, larceny, drug crimes, rape, obstruction of justice and many others. He understands how much is at stake and the legal consequences if you are convicted.

Joseph has worked in the armed forces for eleven years and in his military career, he was a successful JAG lawyer. So he understands how the prosecution works. His experience allows him to anticipate the prosecution's moves in advance, giving them a fitting counter argument.

He has a vast experience in UCMJ law on several bases in the U.S as well as internationally. If you are looking for a USAG Wiesbaden military defense attorney who can take an objective view of your military case and present the best defense possible, please contact Joseph Jordan today.
