The Judge Advocate General's Corps 75th Anniversary seal

75th Anniversary Edition of The JAG Reporter

Welcome to the JAG Corps' 75th Anniversary Edition of
The JAG Reporter!

On June 25, 1948, Congress passed the Air Force Military Justice Act, thereby creating the Office of The Judge Advocate General. Air Force General Order #7, published on January 25, 1949, officially established The Judge Advocate General’s Department (renamed the JAG Corps in 2003). For the past seventy-five years, the JAG Corps has personified the values of wisdom, valor, and justice while executing the national security mission with integrity, excellence, and an unwavering commitment to service.
