D-M's base support plan is now under its annual review.

A base support plan lists a base's resources and capabilities. It's a chart developed for every base with a permanent presence.

The program is Air Force-wide and controlled by each base's Log Plan office.

"Reviews have to be completed before the calendar date of the previous year," said Senior Airman Sammie Ervan, 355th Logistics Readiness Squadron Base Support Plan manager. "For example, last year we closed out by Nov. 9, so this year we have to get it done by Nov. 8."

Editor's note: Each month, the legal office publishes the results of actions under the Uniform Code of Military Justice completed during the previous month. Specific individuals who received Nonjudicial Punishment are not identified.


ARTICLE 15 ACTIONS: During June 2013, D-M commanders administered seven Nonjudicial Punishment actions under Article 15 of the UCMJ. The punishments imposed reflect the commander's determination of an appropriate punishment after considering the circumstances of the offense and the offender's record. A "suspended" punishment does not take effect unless the offender engages in additional misconduct or fails to satisfy the conditions of the suspension. The suspension period usually lasts for six months unless a lesser amount is specified.

Rescue personnel will use the new building to construct and rig airdrop loads.

Thomas Jones, 563rd Operations Support Squadron chief of aerial delivery. "Along with these new capabilities comes more responsibility, and we have to make sure our Airmen are properly trained."
