1/10/2011 - EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- In December, there were six Articles 15 offered on base.

Nonjudicial punishment under Article 15, Uniform Code of Military Justice, provides commanders with an essential and prompt means of maintaining good order and discipline and also promotes positive behavior changes in service members without the stigma of a court-martial conviction, however, an Article 15 can be the final disciplinary action triggering initiation of an administrative discharge.
