Section 5 Uniformed Code of Military Justice and NASW Code of Ethics Essay




Instructions for Session 5

(1) Please review the Power Point lecture on the Uniformed Code of Military Justice.

(2) After reviewing the lecture, you may peruse the Manual for Courts-Martial (ed. 2016, 2012 and 2002) that is posted on D2L “only if you are interested.”

(3) Please review the articles posted on D2L which examines the role of women in combat. After reviewing the articles, please watch the video “Lioness” (directed by Meg McLagan & Daria Sommers) which also explores the role of female soldiers in war zones. This video should not be too difficult to watch, because there is very little graphic content. I expect everyone to review this footage. However, you will not be penalized if you are unable to watch this video. This video is on “course reserve” at the library. Please refer to the section entitled “Documentary Learning Series” on D2L. Please watch the video no later than Wednesday (July 1, 2020).

(4) If you are unable to retrieve the video from the library, it is available on Amazon. You may also try Netflix or Youtube.

(5) Please read the Department of Defense article posted on D2L that defines the concept Conscientious Objectors. This is a very interesting concept and deserves your attention. In addition, please write at least one paragraph at the end of the paper expressing your thoughts about Conscientious Objectors. As a side note, Mel Gibson made a movie entitled “Hacksaw Ridge.” The movie, based on true events, is about a soldier (Desmond T. Doss) who refused to kill or carry a gun while serving in the military. You do not need to watch this movie. I only mentioned it, because of the concept Conscientious Objector. Desmond T. Doss was the first Conscientious Objector to be awarded the Medal of Honor.

(6) Please review the article on Women and Selective Services. Historically, women were exempt from conscription or “the draft” in the United States and did not have to register with Selective Services.

(7) Please write a one to two-page paper (not in APA format) expressing your thoughts and feelings after reviewing the lecture, manuals and/or footage. Your paper should reflect a level of knowledge showing that you have read and reflected on the lecture or other material. Please “try” to submit your reflection paper no later than 9:00 A.M. on Thursday (July 2, 2020).
