Presidio of Monterey is a U.S. Army post with a robust history. Today it houses the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center (DLI-FLC). The site originally served as a Spanish fort in the 1700s, before the U.S. seized control in the 1840s. In that time, it has seen many servicemen and women develop their careers on its grounds, and all are required to follow the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) and face prosecution for any breach of the code that occurs during their service.
