Military Law Review

Excerpt: In 1960, two prisoners escaping from a military stockade at Fort Carson, Colorado, kidnapped a p a r d . Their subsequent trial by general court-martial started a judicial process culminating in holdings by the United States Court of Military Appeals that the offense of kidnapping, in violation of Colorado statutes, is also an offense under the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
