I would like to know if my Command can punish me for laughing at my Brigade Commander for telling me that I am getting a letter of reprimand. A FLIPL was conducted and I was found liable for a few items that were not mine.
Yes. I have done this myself to my own detriment. It feels right. Sometimes the guy in charge is an idiot. Still, laughing at him to his face brings nothing good.See question
My Platoon Sg telling me that I am hard slotted to a Combatives school where you get punched, dropped and hurt, it is done as a part of class. I've known many people who came from there went straight on physical profile. I start Warrior Leader C...
Yes, "man up" and go. Let me just put it into perspective for you. 47 short years ago, Uncle Sam could pluck you off of the street, run you through basic and ship you to VIETNAM. Once in Vietnam, they could order you to go into the jungle and kill people.
Now go and Be All You Can Be.
P.S. What I would give to go to a combatives course with Drew Early!See question
Do I need a lawyer to sue the military for the water contamination at camp lejuene while I served. And contracted non Hodgkin's lymphoma
Yup, you need a really really good lawyer. You need a lawyer soooo gooood that he can overcome almost 60 years of US Supreme Court precedence that says you cannot sue the military in these type cases (United States v. Feres, the genesis of the so-called "Feres Doctrine" which says in so many words, "You cannot sue the military").
Why? Well, for one reason because you can go to the VA and get relief. For another, because the courts don't want to be bogged down with people suing the military. Yes, a really really good lawyer. Don't pay hourly, go with a contingent contract.See question
I need a VA (veteratian Admin.) lawyer for my military benifits
Cassara is correct. We cannot recommend. So by way of example, if I recommended Mr. Drew Early in Atlanta (DeKalb County in fact) that would be wrong. So I cannot do that.See question
I received a locally filed GOMOR about 20 months ago. I have since PCS'd so it is now "destroyed" since I am at a new Court Martial authority and my understanding is my old command should not discuss it anymore. However, I am now renewing my sec...
You should always always always tell the whole truth. If it is not meant to be, then it is not meant to be. You will, however, forever have your integrity. That is what matters most.See question
i was arrested in Jan 2015 after being pulled over by the police after there was a warrant out for my arrest since 2012 in Dekalb County that I didn't know about . But it's now March of 2016 and my case still have not been indicted. It's been 4 ye...
There are a lot of variables here. Your process starts with sitting down face-to-face with an attorney and talking this thing out. You cannot hope to get strong answers to such a vague, open-ended fact pattern. Nothing takes the place of a face-to-face meeting with an attorney. Do this right away.See question
My ex wife divorced me while i was overseas l,and now she will not let me see my daughter. I have numerous interfering with child custody reports done on her. And i am paying child support.
First off, do you have any rights to see this child under the terms of the Final Judgment? Many is the case where these quickie divorces go down and the judge does not address it or deprives you of it. If you were in my office, I would say, "Stop stop, hold the phone here. SHOW ME where you have any legal right to see this child." After that, I would go to step two, which is creating a body of evidence that she is willfully depriving you of a right under the court order.See question
I have a WWII era tank destroyer uniform on display, is it okay to wear the jacket?
Yes, just don't tell anyone you fought in WWII to gain anything of value from them, unless you did.
But remember, just because you can wear it does not mean you should wear it.See question

Yes, you need counsel who can diplomatically look into this for you. Your chain of command can consider a wide range of factors in reaching a decision about what to do with you. I am hesitant to say that you are being treated unfairly without knowing a lot more about your case.See question

Avvo is not better than a face-to-face with a lawyer. If you are unhappy with your lawyer, go find another. Asking lawyers on Avvo if your real lawyer is not doing you right, is silly.See question
