Military Law Lawyers In Maiden Rock Wisconsin

Maiden Rock is a village in Pierce County, Wisconsin, United States. The population was 121 at the 2000 census. The village is located within the Town of Maiden Rock. The town is named for a cliff (also called "Maiden Rock") just south of the village. In the Princess Winona legend, the daughter of Dakota Indian Chief Red Wing (for whom the nearby town of Red Wing, Minnesota is named) jumped from this cliff after her lover, a member of the rival Chippewa tribe, was killed by Dakota warriors under orders from Red Wing. A plaque still stands near the base of the cliff, memorializing the village's namesake.

What is military law?

Military law only applies to those in military service but is enforced during war and peace. Military law is a statutory code of rules and articles provided by Congress for the government and discipline of troops. Attorneys represent active-duty military personnel, military reservists, and former military personnel with "veteran" status. Military law cases may involve court-martial proceedings under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, and the re-employment rights of reserve military personnel called to active duty.
