Supporting Activities within Iraq and the Persian Gulf Region

militarydefenseattorney22.21788Located within the Kingdom of Bahrain is the Naval Support Activity Bahrain base, where you can find the United States Fifth Fleet and the U.S. Naval Forces Central Command. The main goal out of this base is to support the marine and naval operations involved in OEF (Operation Enduring Freedom) in Iraq. The base has an interesting history in that it was once the property of the Royal Navy, until 1971. At this point the base was turned over to the U.S. government. The base has a number of responsibilities include protection, supply, and logistical help.

The base spans over 10 acres and saw quite a bit of expansion from 2003 and on. This is because Operation Iraqi Freedom was launched. As recently as five years ago a massive multi-year project began which will result in the base increasing in size by double its current amount. Plans include a new flyover bridge that will connect Mina Salman’s port and NSA Bahrain, a brand new dining hall, new barracks, new buildings for administration personnel, and even revamping the current recreation center.

Unlike the majority of civilian defense attorneys or your assigned Navy attorney, pleading guilty is an option of last resort. Our Attorneys compel the US Navy to prove their case. We take almost every case to trial and fight the allegations in front of a military jury.

Our Navy court martial results speak for themselves. The accused sailor and his or her desired outcome is our main concern. Our defense attorneys maintain lighter caseloads than the typical assigned Navy military attorney so that we can focus on each client on an individual basis. Your case will not be outsourced to a random lawyer and we will not force you into pleading guilty at the last minute. Our criminal defense lawyers have contested Navy court martial and administrative separation cases in the United States and around the world.
