Practice of Law at the Brigade Combat Team (BCT): Boneyards, Hitting for the Cycle, and All Aspects of a Full Spectrum Practice [open pdf - 258KB]
"The first Unit of Action (UA) equipped with the Future Combat System is due to be fielded in 2012. The precursors to the Future Forces are the Stryker Brigades and the Brigade Combat Teams (BCTs) currently operating in Iraq. The practice of law in a deployed BCT is unique. The purpose of this article is to provide the Army Judge Advocate (JA) community with a survey of the legal issues in the Iraq theater of operations. This article focuses on deployment-specific issues that BCT JAs frequently encountered and will likely encounter in the future. Particular emphasis is given to Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) fragmentary orders (FRAGOs), policy letters, and other official guidance."
