Hello world. This blog is written by Andrew Cherkasky. I am now a Captain in the U.S. Air Force JAG Corps. The JAG Corps are the military’s lawyers. I graduated from Chicago-Kent College of Law in the spring of 2006.
This blog starts with my experiences at Commissioned Officer Training (COT) and JAG School (JASOC) at Maxwell AFB in Montgomery, AL from mid Jan 07 to the end of Apr 07. After my training I was stationed at Aviano Air Base in Italy for the next 3 years. Aviano is located about an hour north of Venice. I was stationed at the legal office in Aviano for 2 years and spent just over a year at the Area Defense Counsel Office. I have now been stationed in Washington DC as a Senior Trial Counsel and member of the Special Victims Unit.
I hope that this site will keep as many friends and family members up to date. I have been a little surprised by the number of people wanting updates. I hope you enjoy.
