If you serve in the United States military, you know that you are subject to an entire slate of laws that civilians are subject to. You, a member of the military, must also obey martial law and military court. The military is subject to its own code, and the penalties and repercussions can be worse than those given in civilian courts. Jail time or probation can pale in comparison to imprisonment plus the penalties imposed by martial law. Depending on what you are charged with, you might face a dishonorable discharge and loss of your pension. Your pay grade might be downgraded and you could be demoted. For more serious charges, you could fined and could possibly face a death penalty.
