MilitaryRecord.org is reformatting their reports so that they include information about court martial results, the company announced yesterday.
“In the past, we included discharge information that could indicate whether a member of the service was more likely than not convicted of crimes during a court martial,” a MilitaryRecord.org spokesman said. “But we did not include what, exactly, the court martial was for. We now believe that information is valuable and should be included.”
MilitaryRecord.org believes that consumers should have access to court martial results because it could give them a clearer picture of why a soldier got in trouble in the first place.
“If someone was court martialed for a violent, illegal act while in uniform, you need to know so you can avoid that person,” he said. “But there are other, more benign reasons people have been court martialed. For example, if someone was kicked out of the Army for being gay during the period of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, that is not a charge that most of us would take very seriously these days. The same applies to people who may have gotten in trouble for possession of small amounts of marijuana. With pot legal in many parts of the country today, consumers might not hold that against him or her.”
The results will be included as long as they are not classified, he said.
“Obviously, if someone was court martialed for a security breach, that is classified we cannot access that information,” he said.
