Mighty attention-grabbing headline

We Are the Mighty (love that name) here offers 6 Things Not to Do While Getting an Article 15 (nonjudicial punishment). The Editor's favorite comes third: "Don't mouth off to your commander." This is always good advice.

Summary trials (administrative punishment for minor offenses) rarely make the news but account for far more cases than the better-known courts-martial. It's an area that can raise due process and human rights concerns and deserves much closer study than it has received.

  1. Very interesting! It makes it clear that NJP does not have criminal stigma and does not expose individuals to 'true penal consequences'. Thanks Gene for posting.
