    It's not completely clear, but based on the military context ("Private Bartle"), I would guess that he's talking about the Uniform Code of Military Justice, UCMJ.

    You can put "fucking" or "motherfucking" (strong curse words, obviously) in the middle of a phrase for extremely strong emphasis — but sometimes also in the middle of a word. For example:

    This is un-fucking-believable. (unbelievable)

    Of course she's smart — she goes to Stanford Fucking University!

    That is fan-fucking-tastic. (fantastic)

    So I'm guessing that "UCMJ" has been split into "UC motherfucking MJ" for strong, crude emphasis. But that is only my guess.
