  1. I have broadened your posting to attorneys who respond to Avvo questions about cohabitation and military law. I don' t know if you have access to the JAG corps in your branch of the military, but the best answer will come from that group, if you can call or get a consultation from JAG.

    Thank you for your service and be safe.

  2. Check the language. Usually the GO supsedes prior GO's unless there is language in the beginning which says it's a supplement.
    Haven't seen the new GO yet (haven't had cases based on it yet). But in the past each has replaced and superseded the other.;; 703-298-9562, 800-401-1583. Answering your question does not create an attorney-client relationship.

  3. Without seeing the two GO's, no way to know. But generally the new one supersedes the old one. Check with JAG to be sure.

  4. Check with 3ID GO JAG office, or even 3 ID admin office. Also, your company should be able to research that for you and allow you to stay focused on your task order duties---unless you are keeping the cohabitation matter off the corporate radar.
