Without good order, discipline and accountability, the mission can negatively be impacted. The purpose is to improve, correct, and instruct those who depart from standards. The paperwork has two purposes, correct behavior and turn bad apples into stellar Airmen or it is a chronological paper trail that assists in removing the bad apples from the military through administrative demotion, administrative discharge, or court-martial.
If paperwork is written incorrectly or is otherwise legally insufficient, it can make the removal of a poor working member difficult, if not impossible.
For those of you that have seen law shows on television, certain offenses require a person to be guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. Through the processing of paperwork, the issuer and authority level of other command personnel involved can only increase throughout the process.
For example, if the Commander issues the paperwork to the member, the first sergeant cannot sign the indorsements thereafter. This would seem like common sense, but sometimes Commanders are busy or TDY and they may be temporarily unable to finish the process. Unfortunately another reason for this is the chain of command itself.
The Commander may have served paperwork on an member for a certain reason, but the member could have responded to the Commander and was able to explain the one and only reason the member was receiving paperwork in the first place. These situations have arisen during courts-martial and the paperwork was found legally insufficient therefore negating its original purpose.
Also, per Air Force Instructionparagraph 4. If the paperwork is placed in the PIF, the first sergeant should stamp it and write the date it was filed. If the paperwork is placed in a UIF or one will be created due to this paperwork, the decision must be made by the Commander.
If either of these requirements are not met, the paperwork is considered not legally sufficient and is ineffective. The days of threatening an Airmen with paperwork and placing it in a desk drawer are over.
If it goes in a desk drawer, it might as well stay in the drawer because it is no longer legally sufficient. Even though these are the only requirements stated in the AFI, additional information will be covered throughout this presentation to ensure paperwork is never found legally insufficient.
The paperwork must state: This is usually in the first paragraph.
This is usually in the second paragraph. Something I will point out in a template I created is that you should refrain from placing references to the UCMJ in administrative paperwork. I say this because most people are not properly trained on the UCMJ, its offenses, and the elements of each offense.
In order for someone to have committed a UCMJ violation and be found guilty, the member must have met all elements of the violation. The number of elements per offense vary but if one element is not met, the member did not violate the particular UCMJ article.
On the face of it, this clearly sounds like a violation. If administrative paperwork were to be issued for this violation, the issuer would most likely agree it is a violation of Article —Burglary.
What most issuers fail to realize are the elements of this violation. The above image is an example directly from the UCMJ. The top portion in bold is the description of the offense.AREA DEFENSE COUNSEL BARKSDALE AIR FORCE BASE, La.
