Nonjudicial Punishment (Article 15)

An Airman First Class came into contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19 and was placed into medically-directed quarantine with instructions to remain in the A1C’s dorm.  Despite these instructions, the A1C decided to leave base to go shopping and was flagged by DBIDS upon returning to base.  The Wing Commander determined the A1C violated Article 84, UCMJ, and imposed the following punishment:  Reduction to the grade of Airman (suspended); 30 days extra duty; 30 days restriction; and a reprimand.  #justNetflixandchill* #dontspreadtherona

Administrative Discharges

*Administrative Discharges resulting from misconduct, including drug abuse, almost always result in a loss of some veteran benefits, specifically education benefits like the GI Bill. A discharge characterization that is not Honorable, may also limit future employment opportunities*

An Airman First Class was admitted into an in-patient treatment facility.  During the course of the A1C’s treatment, it was discovered that the A1C had a medical condition that pre-dated military service and could have prevented the A1C from being eligible to enlist.  The A1C signed multiple enlistment documents in which the A1C denied the presence of any such medical condition.  The A1C was discharged for fraudulent entry with an Under Honorable Conditions (General) Service Characterization. #honestyisthebestpolicy

An Airman popped hot on seven urinalysis tests.  The initial random urinalysis returned positive for THC at 178 ng/ml. After a positive urinalysis result, members are required to continue to provide urine samples until they no longer have illicit drugs in their system.  As the follow-up samples were tested for this Amn the highest concentration observed was 2676ng/ml of THC.  After multiple follow-up tests the Amn finally came back negative for all illicit drugs.  The Amn was discharged for drug abuse with an Under Honorable Conditions (General) Service Characterization. #juststop #dontsmokeyourcareer

An Airman First Class physically assaulted their significant other, biting their partner’s face during the assault.  The partner ran out of the apartment and the A1C followed shortly thereafter brandishing a firearm.  The Amn was charged with one count of domestic battery and two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm in civilian court. Pending the outcome of a trial, the Amn was discharged for a commission of a serious offense with an Under Other than Honorable Conditions (UOTHC) Service Characterization.  #notAirForcematerial #movealong

 

Court Martial Convictions

There were no court martial convictions during January 2021.

*All Military Justice cases are decided individually on their own merits and facts.  There is no formula or table that determines the appropriate findings or action in a specific case. Specific cases are decided by the appropriate commander in that case alone.  The above incidents were what the appropriate commander decided in those cases and do not determine decisions for future similar cases, which could be harsher or more lenient.  I hope every F.E. Warren Airman will read the above incidents, discuss them with fellow Airmen, be good wingmen, and help each other every day to avoid getting their own hashtag.  #goodwingmenhelptheirwingmennotendupinthisemail*
