The United States Army Reserve Legal Command (USARLC) was established in October 2009. The Command occupies the MG Benjamin L. Hunton Memorial USAR Center located in Gaithersburg, Maryland, which is within the National Capital Region. MG Hunton is notable for being the first African-American to become a general officer in the United States Army Reserve.
The USARLC is a one-star command of over 1,700 Soldiers that controls the operations of 28 Legal Operations Detachments (LODs), three of which are Trial Defense Service (TDS), one is judicial (Military Judge), one is Individual Augmentee (IA) and the remaining 23 are general multi-functional legal units. Each LOD is commanded by a Colonel (06), although in manpower it is the functional equivalent to a company-sized organization. Click here for Legal Operations Detachments map.
The over-arching mission of the USAR Legal Command is to exercise mission command and control of trained and ready legal forces which provide multi-functional legal support to commanders, Soldiers, and family members in support of military operations worldwide.
