Military justice update: Learn from other’s mistakes

SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. --

The following actions were taken against members of the Schriever Air Force Base community under the Uniform Code of Military Justice and other Air Force regulations from April 1st to

June 30th, 2019.

These incidents serve as a reminder of the expectations that exist for members of the Wing.  They demonstrate the real consequences for those who violate the law and our Air Force regulations.  There is no standard punishment when an action is taken.  Rather, each finding and punishment decision is based on the unique facts and circumstances of the incident, as well as the member’s individual circumstances, and any response the member provides.

COURTS-MARTIAL:

A senior airman from 4th Space Operations Squadron pled guilty at a Special Court-Martial to Article 128, Assault. The individual’s punishment was a reduction to the grade of airman and forfeiture of $250.00 pay per month for one month. 

ARTICLE 15s:

A staff sergeant from 50th Operations Group, received an Article 15 for Article 107, False Official Statement. The individual’s punishment was a reduction to the grade of senior airman, 45 days of extra duty, and a reprimand.

A staff sergeant from 50th Security Forces Squadron, received an Article 15 for Article 92, Dereliction of Duty. The individual’s punishment was a suspended reduction to the grade of senior airman, forfeiture of $1,500.75 pay, 15 days of extra duty, and a reprimand.

ADMINISTRATIVE DISCHARGES:

Honorable Discharge: An airman from 4th Space Operations Squadron, was administratively discharged due to failure to maintain physical fitness standards.

General Discharge:  An airman first class from 50th Operations Support Squadron, was administratively discharged due to minor disciplinary infractions.

In closing, please do not hesitate to use first sergeants, the Chaplain, the Airman and Family Readiness Center, and the Health and Wellness Center for assistance in all areas of your life. You can also learn from the mistakes of your peers.

Whether you’re an airman basic, a non-commissioned officer, or an officer, everyone is expected to maintain Air Force standards. Leaving your appointed place of duty without permission, failure to maintain dress and appearance standards (to include maintaining proper uniform combinations), creating a hostile work environment, failure to obey orders, wrongful use of illegal drugs, fraternization between officers and enlisted members, and failure to maintain Air Force minimum physical fitness standards are all examples of offenses that may result in disciplinary action and/or administrative discharge.

Please utilize the numerous support systems the Air Force provides to ensure you have a successful Air Force career.  If you have questions or concerns, please contact the Wing Legal Office at DSN 560-5050.
