355th Fighter Wing Judge Advocate

Each month, the legal office publishes the results of actions under the Uniform Code of Military Justice completed during the previous month. Specific individuals who received Nonjudicial Punishment are not identified.

Article 15 Actions

During February 2013, D-M commanders administered seven Nonjudicial Punishment actions under Article 15 of the UCMJ. The punishments imposed reflect the commander’s determination of an appropriate punishment after considering the circumstances of the offense and the offender’s record.

The suspension period usually lasts for six months unless a lesser amount is specified.
