USFK Court Martial Results for May 2013

Below is the latest court martial results from the USFK website.  The only thing of interest is that the four soldiers tried in the Uijongbu district court towards the end of the ROK criminal prosecution list I believe are from the subway incident.  They were convicted of bodily injury and one guy for assault which shows that the claims of molesting the woman on the subway were fabricated.  One soldier that is not on the May list wants to have a trial because he believes he is innocent.

    “B Co, 304th Signal Battalion, USAG Red Cloud”

    Red Cloud? Last I heard B, C, and HHC moved down to the Hump months ago. Must be a typo. :o

    1. I was A-304th (aka “blotter 304th”) at CRC…………. in 1990 :razz:

    Anyhoo, as in a previous month there was a very precise monetary amount. This time it is civil assessment in the amount of 3,674,304 Won. What gives? Who is going to cry about 4,304 won, or 304 won, or even 4 won?

    /I’m not saying it’s aliens, but…

    This is the second time Calderon made the blotter. In January 2012 he was court-martialed for similar shenanigans (both the recent case and his prior violations of general orders/regulations almost certainly relate to “spice.”)

    How the hell is he on the blotter again if he was discharged from the service with a Bad-conduct Discharge? It sure looks like it but is this the same guy? Has he perhaps been on international hold all this time awaiting Korean justice? Same or different crimes? So many questions…

    Leon fellow 304th’er eh? Was in HHC from 03 to 06 (Colbern & Stanley).

    Hmm so you were some sort of MSC guy? SSS maybe? Tropo?

    I worked tropo at hood. We still had AN/GRC-50′s when I was at 304th. I was a multichannel satellite repair guy 29M.

    I heard a high percentage of Tropo guys end up sterile later in life from sitting in those irradiated shelters hours at a time. That or it could be from eating the birds that fly in front of the dish. ;-)

    What is tropo?

    Commonly nicknamed “Mickey Mouse Ears” or some variant of. You definitely don’t want to be in front of one of these things when it’s on.

    9. Exactly, you’re talking about the good old AN/TRC-170 pushing a few thousand watts in the Ghz range. Not a good idea to get radiated. Oh, and do not put radioactive tools and parts in your pockets (from the front of the manual).

    Thanks for the link, Smokes. It includes an interesting map. The system extends from Hawaii to Okinawa, but then doesn’t go on to the rest of Japan, nor to Korea.

    10 Leon – You have a radioactive tool? I’m impressed.

    12. He probably keeps it in a radioactive box these days, too. ;-)

    @4. A bad conduct discharge sentence cannot be approved until after an appellate review. Therefore, a Soldier sentenced to a BCD/DD/Dismissal technically remains in the military on (voluntary or involuntary) appellate leave until his appeal is heard. During this period he retains his military ID, health care, and commissary privileges. He does not receive pay and allowance after his ordinary leave is exhausted. Unless the garrison commander has barred a Soldier from post, there is no reason he or she cannot freely enter any US military installation pending appellate review.

    This guy probably flew back to Korea on his own dime and continued doing his thing. It is surprisingly common. I would be interested to know whether he entered the ROK on a tourist passport or his ID/leave form.
