Air Force Town Hall 20 July 2016
Gen. David L. Goldfein, what are you going to do to address the injustices within the military justice system? One particular issue is that there far too many cases in which military commanders send baseless charges to trial, regardless of the facts. Even a military judge’s official recommendation for dismissal of charges can be completely disregarded. This is an serious injustice to our service members, and enforces a complete lack of fairness or faith in our military legal system. Truth, evidence and facts should drive cases to trial, not the whims of a commander…How will you restore the public’s faith in the Air Force’s justice system?
