I have been told that as a military member I no longer have any rights. Is that true?

Military members have similar constitutional rights as civilians such as the right to remain silent when being questioned by law enforcement when suspected of violating the UCMJ or when they have a reasonable expectation of privacy in their property. When a person enters the military, they do lose some freedom of movement and the ability to act in certain ways. If you believe your rights have been violated or want to call a lawyer before waiving any of your rights, please contact my office to see if I can be of assistance.
