Located in San Diego County in Southern California, Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton is one of the largest Marine Corps bases in the country. Many Marines start their training at the base. All service members must follow the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) while stationed at Camp Pendleton or any military facility. The UCMJ includes all of the codes of conduct, crimes, and punishments that govern military law.
Enforcing UCMJ at Camp Pendleton
All service people are subject to the laws of the UCMJ while stationed at Camp Pendleton. The codes are different from civilian laws and can be complicated to navigate.
If you have been charged with a UCMJ violation at Camp Pendleton, your future and career are at stake. A conviction could result in demotion or dishonorable discharge.
