Col Christensen profiled in Air Force Times

Col. Don Christensen,
Air Forces Times is running this excellent profile of the new head of Protect Our Defenders, recently-retired Air Force JAG Corps Colonel Don Christensen. Excerpt:
"I wasn't spouting the company line that commanders are wonderful and should be in charge," Christensen said.
Soon after the downgraded performance report, he learned he was being reassigned to the Air Force Court of Criminal Appeals.
"I did not look at that as a good assignment," he said. "I would sum up the service courts this way: They have a lot of great judges — some of these guys are best friends of mine — but it is not taken seriously by Air Force leadership."
Col. Christensen, who previously served as the U.S. Air Force's chief prosecutor, has been outspoken about the need for structural change in the Uniform Code of Military Justice, and supports Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand's Military Justice Improvement Act.
