Tripler Army Medical Center (TAMC) is the headquarters of the Pacific Regional Medical Command and is run by the Department of the Army. It is one of the most active American military hospitals in the world and serves local active duty, reserve, and retired service members. The outstanding medical care its personnel provide to military service members and their families, however, is sometimes overshadowed by the constant threat of court martial proceedings.

TAMC is no stranger to courts-martial, administrative separation proceedings, GOMORs and Article 15 hearings (NJP). The hospital employs over 7,000 active duty Soldiers and accusations of criminal offenses, from rape and assault, to drug and other UCMJ crimes, occurs every single year. The danger that UCMJ allegations presents to the military careers of TAMC service members is no small matter:

  • Even the weakest allegations can destroy your reputation and put a question mark on your honor. “Innocent until proven guilty” often seems to be replaced by “guilty until proven innocent.”
  • Most UCMJ convictions or accusations almost guarantee a dishonorable discharge, bad-conduct discharge, or other than honorable (OTH) discharge from the service. Even if you’re not kicked out of the military, the adverse action against you more than likely kills any chance for promotion or career advancement.
  • Imprisonment, sometimes for decades or more, is permissible under the UCMJ and is awarded liberally. Depending on the UCMJ offense, you may also face huge fines and sex offender registration requirements that could last for the rest of your life.

Tripler Army Medical Center Background and Court Martial Matters

Tripler Army Medical Center is a massive Army medical complex that serves over 430,000 local active duty military members, beneficiaries, and veterans across the Pacific Region. There are over 7,000 active duty service members at Tripler as well as over 11,000 family members.

TAMC was named after Brigadier General Charles Stuart Tripler, whose contributions to military medicine in the 19th century saved thousands of lives. The coral pink color of Tripler Army Medical Center and many of its design elements were inspired by the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Waikiki, which was a primary recreational site for US military personnel during WWII.

The increased growth of Tripler Army Medical Center, has caused its court martial proceedings to increase as well. Rape and Sexual assault allegations are made regularly. Drug crimes, financial fraud crimes, and officer misconduct accusations are also seen quite often.
