    If they think you lied during a 15-6, the "offense" would be making a false official statement in violation of Article 107 UCMJ. The max punishment for 107 is 5 years confinement, a dishonorable discharge, total forfeitures of pay, and reduction to E-1. Perjury is if you were alleged to have lied under oath at a court-martial trial. So that's not applicable. You MUST at this point remain silent. Exercise your RIGHT to remain silent and have a lawyer. Do not talk to anyone, especially...

    Follow Mr. Contigugula's guidance. While the law is expected to go into effect the federal government is deciding whether to challenge the law because of federal laws regulating drugs. Not a time to be experimenting yet. And, if you happen to have a military affiliation or need a security clearance it will never be permitted to an individual regardless of state laws.

    As Mr. Poulson advises, first gather evidence. Your word alone will not be sufficient. You will need records of phone calls, emails, chats, and documents. Talk to the lawyer handling the appeal about this.

    You cannot sue in civil or military courts. If you have sought to address this through your chain of command you can make a formal EO complaint. Your battalion has an EO counselor who can assist. He/she has various mechanisms that might help, investigations into individual cases, EO unit-wide evaluations, etc. First address this directly with him. If that doesn't work try your platoon sergeant. If that doesn't work your 1SG.

  6. Military members paying child support---are BAH and BAS calculated in child support payments?

    The basic answer is yes, Virginia considers BAH and other non-taxable pay as income for child support purposes, as do most states. This is true especially where the noncustodial parent is living alone in the barracks but drawing BAH based on a child support obligation. In considering child support in this situation the court will often consider a remarriage with additional children and step-children involved. Bu this is all part of dealing with and deciding any overall child support decision.

    I have always understood that over 80 or 20 over the limit is reckless in VA. http://www.dmv.state.va.us/drivers/#points_6.asp http://leg1.state.va.us/cgi-bin/legp504.exe?000+cod+46.2-862 In Virginia, a reckless driving conviction is a class I misdemeanor, so you could face jail time, suspension of driving privileges, and a fine of up to $2,500.00. Additionally, a conviction will result in six demerit points on your Virginia driver’s license. Some other states have reciprocity agreements...

    You have up to 15years from the date of discharge to submit for an upgrade. generally the first look is a paper review, and then you go back later and ask for a personal appearance. So you are still within the application timeline. If you were medically discharged and there was no misconduct I'm not sure why you did not get an honorable discharge to start. So it's possible with some investigation that there is a challenge based on that. You should gather all of your military records,...

    No. The way to get the rules changed is to vote, and hope that enough people vote for someone willing to take on a rule and get this country running.
