§§ 801–946), is the foundation of military law in the United States. At the same time, the "court-martial" itself (the panel of officers hearing the case and weighing the evidence) has converted from being essentially a board of inquiry/review presiding over the trial, into a jury of military service-members.
Effective upon its ratification in 1788, Article I, Section 8 of the United States Constitution provided that Congress has the power to regulate the land and naval forces.

Despite rumors about his parties, there never was an investigation of Steuben and he received a Congressional pension after the war. military discharged soldiers for homosexual acts throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth century even in the absence of any explicit prohibition of sodomy. lacked a unified policy on service by homosexuals for most of their history.
The first evidence of antipathy to homosexuals serving in the United States military dates from March 11, 1778, when Lieutenant Frederick Gotthold Enslin was drummed out of the Continental Army following his conviction at court-martial on charges of sodomy and perjury. The Articles of War#United States of America of 1916, implemented on March 1, 1917, included Article 93 stating that any person subject to military law who committed "assault with intent to commit sodomy" shall be punished as a court-martial may direct.

Only 24 percent of those who marry after age 25 will divorce within 10 years.
That doesn’t mean half those teen marriages last forever.
Considering how many stressors a young military marriage must face, that fact alone ought to be enough to convince us that everybody in the military ought to be single until, say, age 25. Which should make the entire active-duty population sit up and howl. In the all-volunteer force, early marriage is so common that it is the norm. In the civilian population, 74 percent of all women have been married by age 30. But my real thinking is that my line of work I hear from plenty of long-married military couples who married before age 25, but I rarely hear of a teen marriage that worked out for the best. It ain’t no sin to be young and hopeful when you get married.
