Abstract:

When a soldier in our charge is requesting for our reference for their past performance and character when they are receiving UCMJ, we as leaders have the duty and morale responsibility to stand up and support our soldiers who we are in charge of. Often, we are quick to fear whatthe higher chain of command perceives a weakness if we professionally support the past performance and future potential of our soldiers who are receiving punishment under UCMJ or court martial. Recently, I was ordered to speak on behalf of one my past NCOs Court Martial.
