Court-Martial Ordered in War Booty Case
EGLIN AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- A court-martial was ordered Tuesday for an Air Force officer charged with illegally shipping AK-47 assault rifles, rocket propelled grenade launchers and other souvenirs from Iraq to this Florida Panhandle base.

Maj. Gregory McMillion is scheduled for trial April 5. If convicted on all charges, he could receive a penalty ranging from no punishment to a discharge and imprisonment.

He faces charges of disregarding orders against bringing home war booty, failing to report and turn over captured or abandoned property, making false statements and conduct unbecoming an officer.

Charges of dealing in captured or abandoned property were dropped because there was no evidence McMillion received anything of value for Iraqi uniforms, bayonets and other items he allegedly gave away, said Capt. Heather Lengel, who is helping prosecute the case.
...
McMillion was a maintenance officer with the Eglin-based 728th Air Control Squadron in Iraq. Air Force officials said the alleged contraband was found in crates of equipment shipped to Eglin in September 2003 about two months before the ground radar unit returned.
