The JAG MAN expounds on the export of America's military discipline system...
A JAG in Afghanistan
We as mentors, and even they as the legal corps of the ANA, have to realize that their system of military of justice is not even a year old. Their military justice system was passed into [law] last December and it wasn't until around June of this year that it really went into effect. I was told that since June they've done about 50 court martials in the [V Corps]. That may seem like a lot or a little, depending on your point of view, but it's been a tremendous success for the [Afghanistan National Authority--ANA] to get this far. One of the judges said that it's taken our system of [justice] over 200 years to develop so the great strides they've made in less than a year are commendable.
