15/11/2023

Secretary of the Army Christine Wormuth has approved the recommendation of the Army Board for Correction of Military Records to set aside the courts-martial convictions of the 110 Black Soldiers of the 3rd Battalion, 24th Infantry Regiment - known as the Buffalo Soldiers - who were convicted following the World War I-era Houston Riots.

“Even with the backdrop of entrenched, state-sanctioned racial segregation, there was an immediate public outcry about the miscarriage of justice,” Army Brig. Gen. Ronald Sullivan, chief justice of the Army’s Court of Criminal Appeals, told a crowd gathered at the Buffalo Soldiers National Museum in Houston."

Read the full release through the attached link.

The soldiers of the 3rd Battalion, 24th Infantry Regiment, an all-Black member regiment, had been convicted of murder and mutiny in the Houston Riots of 1917.

"CPT David Liu was no stranger to the adrenaline rush that surged through his veins as he leaped out of the airplane into the abyss below. As the eighth jumper from the right door, he had completed countless jumps before – each one a dance with gravity that tested his training, precision, and courage.

The cold wind roared in his ears on May 4, 2023, as he plummeted towards the ground, the vast expanse of the Sicily Drop Zone stretching out beneath him. It was during the crucial moments of gathering his equipment after a seemingly routine landing that he spotted a parachute reinflating nearby, setting off a chain of events that would underline the importance of vigilance, quick thinking, and the spirit of camaraderie that defines the U.S. Army."

Read about how one Soldier's heroic intervention saved another during a fateful Airborne operation.

On 24 October 2023, CPT Conrad Sewinski traveled to the University of Illinois College of Law and presented to law school students on Military Justice and the Office of the Special Trial Counsel. Many of the students in attendance took CPT Sewinski’s business card, three of which approached CPT Sewinski after the presentation to discuss his assignment in the JAG Corps, as well as ask questions about the Direct Commission Course and the Officer Basic Course.

On 31 October 2023, CPT Sewinski traveled to his undergraduate alma mater, Dominican University, and presented to a group of pre-law students. CPT Sewinski spoke about his career path from his graduation from Dominican University to his current assignment in Stuttgart, Germany. CPT Sewinski discussed taking the LSAT, applying to law schools, and why the JAG Corps was a great option for him. Every student in attendance took a business card, and four students approached CPT Sewinski after the presentation to talk about military life and the JAG Corps application process.

Outstanding outreach and recruiting efforts, CPT Sewinski!

PFC Richard Zheng, Paralegal Specialist with the Office of the Staff Judge Advocate, 1st Armored Division and Fort Bliss, won the Fort Bliss Best Paralegal Competition earlier this month. After winning the highly competitive competition, he had but one ask to his Battalion Command Sergeant Major - he wanted to shoot a tank.

Read about PFC Zheng's opportunity to train with fellow Soldiers from his battalion during gunnery tables below, including the chance to fire from an M1A2 Abrams tank. PFC Zheng will next compete at the III Corps Best Paralegal Competition at Fort Cavazos, Texas in November.

Alumni on the Move: Captain Mandi Ford - Finding Meaning and Mission in the Military

CPT Mandi Ford, Trial Counsel with the 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division and Fort Riley, recently took part in the Chapman University Fowler School of Law's 'Alumni on the Move', where she detailed her life as a Judge Advocate over her first few years of service, opportunities that have been presented to her, and what she enjoys most about being part of the U.S. Army JAG Corps.

"The JAG Corps is built for attorneys; they want good people. They will train you and they will help you find your specialty. With every role I've had in JAG, the Army has given me the opportunity and the time to become competent in that role."
