Wheeler Army Air Field

Wheeler Army Air Field - United States Post

Established in 1941, Wheeler Army Airfield is a United States Army post on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. During the December 7, 1941, attack on Pearl Harbor, it was also an island target because of its strategic location and operational capabilities.

Today, the greatest threats to the Soldiers of Wheeler Army Airfield are hand-picked military prosecutors under extreme pressure to increase their court-martial conviction rate. Year after year, a high number of Soldiers serving at Wheeler are investigated or accused of UCMJ violations. If convicted at court-martial or administratively separated, they could be awarded a sentence that ruins their military careers and devastates their lives.

  • A conviction for violating the UCMJ almost guarantees your military career will be upended by a dishonorable discharge or a bad conduct discharge.
  • Prison time is a strong possibility depending on the offense. Many Army Soldiers at Wheeler who get caught up in a government prosecution, often face decades of prison time if convicted.
  • Even worse, many UCMJ offenses require mandatory minimum sentencing, while most sex crimes require some level of sex registration. Such registration can be for the remainder of your life and is publicly displayed for all to see.

Whether you’re facing an investigation, court martial, NJP (Article 15), BOI, administrative separation board, or some other adverse action by your command, you owe it to yourself to choose the best representation available. Call us TODAY to set up your free consultation and discover how we would investigate, prepare, and defend your case.

Court Martial Trials for Wheeler Army Airfield Personnel

Wheeler Army Airfield sits right next to Schofield Barracks. Hundreds of families make it their Oahu home. It is home to the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), the Hawaii Air Nation Guard’s 169th Aircraft Control & Warning Squadron (169 ACWS), the Hawaii National Guard’s Detachment 55 OSA, and the Regular Army’s 25th Infantry Division’s Combat Aviation Brigade.

Although Wheeler Army Airfield has a smaller military population than Schofield Barracks, it still has an abundance of court martial activity every year. Noel Tipon defends Army personnel from offenses ranging from rape and sexual assault, BAH fraud and other financial crimes, as well as drug crimes and all other UCMJ offenses. If you are a military service member stationed at Wheeler, do not hesitate to contact our team of court martial lawyers if you are facing any UCMJ matter. We have a reputation for fighting and winning when others think it is hopeless.

Army Soldiers at Wheeler Army Airfield Trust Noel Tipon to Defend and Fight for Their Rights in Court

We have been defending active duty and reserve Army Soldiers stationed at Wheeler Army Airfield for years. And we are based right here in Honolulu, Hawaii. This results in some very important advantages for the Hawaii service members we represent:

  • Another attorney from the mainland could be far less responsive. They’re also separated from you and any potential crime scene, witnesses, and other important trial matters, by great distances. Our law firm doesn’t have that problem. When time is of the essence—and it is for service members facing military charges—wasting it drastically increases the chances of being found guilty or suffering some other negative action.
  • We employ a number of essential support staff right here in Hawaii. Our investigative capabilities allow us to immediately begin working on identifying witnesses and locating case-critical evidence.
  • We have a vast network of quality connections linking us to law enforcement, including NCIS, CID, and OSI. We also have established contacts within all military branches that extends from Hawaii to Washington D.C., and beyond. Chances are high that we know who to call to find out what, if anything, the government has against you, which helps us plan and execute a better defense for you.

We’re not necessarily saying that there is a “hometown advantage,” but being located in Hawaii certainly doesn’t hurt the Hawaii service members we represent.
