    I had to travel to Philadelphia to obtain my wavers before I was allowed to swear in. Without notice, I was discharged with a Regular under Honorable Conditions discharge.

    What's the question. None is provided.

  • Should I request a BOI? Or is it automatically for an officer to get BOI for a referred evaluation report?

    My Company Commander gave me a referred Officer Evaluation Report and I would like to know if I should get a Board of Inquiry. I am also been recommended for administrative separation. I do not know that to expect right now after receiving a negat...

    Phillip’s Answer

    There's too many gaps in the question you ask. You should never take an Adsep without actually speaking to an attorney that practices military law. The long term repercussions are severe. Also, same for the OER. Partly depends on what it's for and how it was authored.

    A retired soldier said that the president, his family and civilians should commit sucide. I stood up for the president.

    Phillip’s Answer

    There's not enough information and before you start admitting to illegal behavior, I'd suggest calling a lawyers office before admitting to things on the internet.

  • Can I go back and file for disability benefits from the military?

    I went to Navy basic training in 2009 while there I developed blood clots. I received some treats there but after that. I got ELS discharged I was on my own. Prior to that I had clots in 2006 after giving child birth but they had gone away. Now I'...

    Phillip’s Answer

    It's hard to tell by the facts you give, but certainly you can apply for VA benefits and they will review your service and disabilities and determine eligibility. The eligibility date will be affected by the delay - but if your service supports it and the disability is there, you can receive the benefits.

  • Retirement pay can I still go to court and get it after 6 years of being divorced?

    My husband and I divorced in 2011 after 10 years. He manipulated me and of course I was naive and didn't know better, but he told me he wouldn't sign the divorce papers if I didn't chase him for his retirement. I agreed because I wanted to move on...

    Phillip’s Answer

    I agree with Mr Cassara. You need to talk to a divorce/family law attorney, but I suspect you waived it if the divorce is final and the division of assets has happened.

  • How do I fight my discharge characterization while still serving to avoid having to deal with a discharge review board?

    I was an E-4 in the Air Force when this all took place and had been in for 4.5 years without a re-enlistment. My roommate came home, apparently I was high on LSD and he reported me to OSI. I had already been struggling with severe depression/anxie...

    Phillip’s Answer

    You should call a lawyer that practices military law and get some good sage advice. Many of us on AVVO provide free consultations. In my experience, it's harder to go from general to honorable vice other than honorable to general - because it's considered a favorable characterization - but each case depends on the facts. Good luck.

  • Is my ex eligible for a waiver to enlist in the Marine Corps?

    My Ex-husband is currently an Army Reservist, and is trying to go to active duty with the Marine Corps. We are divorced, and have 3 kids together. I have sole custody, and have no court ordered child support. He has spoken to several recruiters, ...

    Phillip’s Answer

    It's not rocket science. All the recruiter has to do is ask the operations officer at the recruiting station if a waiver is required and whether it will be supported if it is required.

    Almost everything – almost – is waivable if they need bodies.

  • Can I sue the Air Force for endangering and harassing my wife?

    My wife is active duty military. She has complained about harassment, favoritism and bullying but no base agency will assist her. I feel she is being discriminated against due to her medical status. Her leadership has shown no regard for her well ...

    Phillip’s Answer

    I don't really see a cause of action, but she should definitely report the harassment to the Inspector General of the branch of service in which she serves. You could do the same. Also, contact your US representative and/or US Senator. Harassment should not be tolerated and they will investigate it.

  • How can I have this removed....30+years later

    I have an FBI felony from a military court marshal. ...for 28grams of marijuana.....

    Phillip’s Answer

    If it's a court martial - you're probably stuck.

    Maybe you could go to BCMR/BCNR depending on the circumstance.

    You can always call a military practitioner and have them research it.
