With Duel Canadian-American citizenship, can you become an officer in the US military without renouncing Canadian citizenship?
I became an American citizen after coming here from England. The renunciation is effectively part of the oath taking ceremony. I then obtained a commission in the U. S. Navy, and served for 20 plus years.
Were you to continue to claim dual citizenship you'd be denied a security clearance. All commissioned officers are required to have at least a secret clearance these days.See question
I have a criminal case I need solved right now but cant afford an attorney.
Contact the Louisiana state bar association (perhaps their website) and the local bar association. They often maintain lists of attorney's willing to do pro bono or low fee representation. And if you have a law school near you, they sometimes have student / professor clinics for low income people in some areas of the law.See question

If she is old enough to marry and is otherwise mentally competent, then she can move to be with you.
Keep in mind that if you are not married, you may be required to live in the barracks and not be allowed to live off base and get off base housing allowances. It depends on the paygrade and availability of quarters.
If married, you be entitled to on-based housing or a housing allowance if living off base. In addition, she would be registered with and be entitled to TriCare medical care.See question

You can try by petitioning the Discharge Review Board for your service.
I disagree about the security clearance issue. I do security clearances. While this might raise an initial concern, your facts indicate you may well have significant mitigating circumstances.
There is not and never has been an automatic upgrade. What you should have been told is that after six months you were eligible to apply, that that it's not guaranteed.See question
Divorced in TN courts. I got reassigned to military base in Florida and the ex took kids to Texas. She has now refused handing the kids over twice. She is living with her parents. Does that constitute residential status? Do I file in TN or TX...
It may be Texas has the jurisdiction because that's where the children are. However, you need to actually check Texas law.
The best way to start that without paying a lawyer is to go to the Base legal assistance office. They have paralegals and attorneys there who can assist you with basics, and may be able to do some informal interaction with your ex without having to go to court.

Assuming you have sent him a letter (by registered mail) you should consider contacting the Florida Bar.
You do not say if you have hired another attorney as substitute counsel. If you did, that lawyer should take the lead on this I think. If you have not hired substitute counsel, then perhaps you should consider that and get the new lawyer in between you and former lawyer.

This looks like a case to present to the Army Review Boards Agency.
Depending on the quality and amount of evidence in your favor, they have the power, if they want to to change records.
