Time Limit on Charges
I have been in a legal mess for over a year. Nothing has really been done about it. I did nothing wrong really, it is the command's error on the wording of the rule. I refused NJP. I was wondering if there was a time limit on them bring me up on charges and making something happen?
National Guard and discharge
I never did. My enlistment obligation was up sept. 2001 and inactive ready reserve up in 2003. I wanted to get a copy of my dd-214 if I have one but afraid I might be opening up a can worms. I don't think there is a warrant out for arrest as I have been pulled over by police recently and they said nothing about it. Just want to know what my standing is with the National Guard and is my reason for requesting dd-214. Should I request it may I still be in some sort of trouble?
GI Bill/Education Benefits
If I have an other than honorable or general discharge from the Navy am I able to use the education benefits of the GI Bill?
If I am discharged from the Navy with any type of discharge (other than Honorable) can I use the GI benefits as a dependent? my parent is retired military)
I am in the army and deployed overseas. Me and a friend emailed the congressman asking about what steps to take to get a slot to Ranger school when we come home off deployment. Our direct chain of command was not helping us which lead to us emailing the congressman. The platoon leader found out about it and we are being punished. What does the UCMJ state about writing our congressman?
alledged navy deserter
my husband received a letter in july of 07 stating that he was declared a deserter of the united states navy. We were stationed in Norfolk, VA and my husband told me that he went through a medical evaluation and was tested and declared to be ADHD. At this point in time my husband was lead to believe that he would receive a general discharge for medical purposes, this occured around the first of the year Jan. 07. He received his last direct deposit on jan. 15 of 2007. At this point we thought we would receive his dd214 and we never received it and we stayed in Va until may 5 2007 before we return back to our hometown. Can you give some adivce on what we should do in order to get this resolved. One of my main questions is if he was considered a deserter why weren't we notified at our residents in Va, Beach after 30 days we didn't hear anything why was is 7 months later???

Would it help to get my senator involved? Thanks for your time,
warrant for arrest for AWOL when already given general discharge
my daughter was given a general discharge in april this year from the army after leaving the base on her own in march. i saw her paperwork. she was hired recently and has been working. she has spoken to a army official a month or so ago and he advised her everything is ok, she just owes the army some money as they paid her a few weeks after she was gone and confirmed again she is generally discharged. an civilian police officer showed up today looking for her and advised there is a warrant out for her arrest. she was told to go to a police station, explain the circumstances and turn herself in by the officer over the phone.
what should she do? i read a prior article on another site of a soldier who had an honorable discharge 2 years ago who was arrested for being AWOL when of course he wasn't. it took his mother 7 hours to get him out by making phone calls.
is there anything i can do? she should do?
AWOL due to medical
I just went AWOL from the army (Michigan National Guard to be specific) while i was at phase 2 training because the asthma i had before i enlisted came back.
I was told by my recruiter not to tell MEPS about it when i enlisted.
I could barley breath in Arizona (due to the altitude) i went to the army doctors twice and even told them about my asthma, and they refused to believe me, and dismissed my troubles by claiming it was the altitude. Gave me an inhaler both times and shoved me out the door.
I then filed an article 138 against them to my commander... Which was then ignored by him.
I then decided to just leave. What are my options? I'm trying to get out of the army so any help would be appreciated!
Dependants and the military
I am currently attempting to re-enlist back into the army. My recruiter told me to not discolse that I have a minor child (of which I have a court order income deduction order) and only list my step daughter and new born daughter. I do not want to get in any trouble later for not listing my child from my previous marriage. Would this be consider ''Fraudelent Enlistment'' if it was dicovered that I have a 3rd child? Please help. I have not sworn in nor have I signed my contract.
I am going to join the navy in the next six months, but I am really nervous about being promised one thing by a recruiter, and having something else delivered. I have heard people say to get everything in writing, but I really have no idea how to go about doing that. Basically, any advice as to how to make sure that I get what they promise would be great. How do i get things in writing, how do i know that once its in writing the navy will even honor it? How do I tell the recruiter that I am getting this in writing without sounding rude? thanks
Breaking Army Contract While Deployed.
How do I legally break my Army contract after I reenlisted during my deployment here in Iraq with an Honorable Discharge and not lose a single penny? I have come to realize that my mind and body can't handle the military anymore. I am prior service with 8 years altogether. I need to be a civilian again and I'm tired of being held here against my will. What can I do? I'm even started contemplating bad things and I don't want to do that. Help me become a civilian again without ANY negative marks and without loss of money or benefits.
Army Reservist - Possibly a Deserter
I joined the Army Reserves in 2000. After bootcamp and AIT, I attended 2 drills. Afterwards I spoke with my Army Recruiter and told him this was not a way of life that I could continue, and that I wanted out. I failed to tell anyone at my unit, however. I discontinued drilling, and was contacted by my unit only twice. That was 7 years ago, and I'm trying to have this cleared up. I want to do the right thing, but it's hard to find information. I understand turning myself in is an option, but I'm in graduate school and I cannot afford to be imprisoned for a long period. Is there any way I can find out what my status is? I've attempted to obtain my status from the Deserter Hotline in Fort Knox, but they would not give me any information. I requested a duplicate copy of my DD214 from the Records Department, and they said they do not have my record. I've heard that one could ask a Senator to sign a release that you want to serve your country in another way, and if the senator signs this paper, you can be relieved of your obligation. Is this true? Do you have any advice for my situation? Do I need legal representation?
Upgrading OTH discharge/Naturalization process
My husband was granted leave after about 5 weeks in basic training because I lost our first child to miscarriage and had to undergo a D&C to remove the baby. He was concerned about my mental well being and blamed himself for the miscarriage since he wasn't there to help with the household. He never went back to complete basic training and so was eventually classified as a deserter. He did report to Ft.Sill after many weeks and was given an OTH discharge. He is a permanent resident alien seeking to obtain naturalization after years of procrastination but apparently this discharge is going to prevent that. Does he have any options?
I was discharged from the Navy in 1983. I was young, married and immature. My wife left me for another sailor, I went AWOL. I turned myself in. Another sailor was dealing LSD on the ship. I knew him. So I was implicated in the mess. I did no wrong but plea guilty to selling too a NIS agent. My JAG at my SCM said that there was no evidence that I sold to the agent. I plead guilty to the charges anyway, just to get out. Is there any chance now I could get my discharge upgraded? I was messed up and young. Now I am older, hold down a good job and have not been in any trouble. I think that I deserve the truth to come out and to have my discharge upgraded. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Active duty military officer practicing real state on the side... legal or not?
Can a military officer practice real estate (as an agent) on the side while on active duty? Any guidelines regarding using coworkers as leads? I believe the JER states that it would be improper to use subordinates as lead for real estate clients. Please help. Thanks.
