Schofield Barracks in Hawaii

Schofield Barracks - Hawaii

Schofield Barracks is the home of the 25th Infantry Division and the largest Army installation on the island of Oahu. The high number of Soldiers from Schofield that are court martialed every year shows just how ruthless the military justice system can be.
A big mistake that Soldiers make is thinking they can fight UCMJ charges with an inexperienced defense attorney that often has less than five years of experience.

This mistake can be like a stake in the heart, all but guaranteeing the death of the Soldier’s career and some of the most severe punishments this only cements their fate in court and all but guarantees some of the harshest punishment allowed:

  • Dishonorable discharge, bad-conduct discharge, or an other than honorable (OTH) characterization is common. Benefits vanish and a reputation is destroyed.
  • Depending on the offense, incarceration, sex offender registration, and other punishments are possible if you’re be accused and convicted of a crime in the Army.
  • If you have a family, their life could be turned upside down as you lose your income, your reputation, and your ability to get comparable civilian employment. Families can literally be ripped apart over convictions for UCMJ violations.

Hawaiian paradise has now become your living hell. Nobody seems to be on your side or supporting you. You need to do everything you can to protect your reputation and your military career. Call Noel Tipon TODAY to learn how a team of UCMJ lawyers would protect your interests and defend your case.

Schofield Barracks History and Court Martial Proceedings

Schofield Barracks History Summary

Schofield Barracks is considered the most important Army installation in the Hawaiian Islands and is home to US Army Hawaii, the 25th Infantry Division, and the 8th Theater Sustainment Command.

Schofield Barracks is located on the big island of Oahu, adjacent to Wheeler Army Airfield. It is also the closest Army base to the Navy at Pearl Harbor. Its proximity to these key military air and naval installations makes it one of the most important strategic locations on the Hawaiian islands. Established in 1909, the number of Army personnel at Schofield Barracks continues to rise, with a current population of 19,499.
