he in the army over seas. an he was a sleep in his cabin. an someone broke in. stole his laptop n ipod. an he is around Niegria
He would know. It's probably bc he didn't safeguard military property if it was army property - if not, maybe because where he was.
Also - just in case - if you haven't met this guy and he's asking for money to help with the fine - he's probably from Nigeria and stealing your money. I only add this last piece because it happens all the time with internet relationships.See question
My husband has been sentenced to 10 months confinement in the brig. He is about to hit his five month mark of being locked away. Prior to his sentencing, he signed a pretrial agreement stating that his pay was to be continued should he serve time....
It sounds like they failed to suspend and defer - or maybe your husband is past his EAS and can't get paid (which is a problem). Call his defense attorney and let him know. Your husband needs to get on top of it asap.See question
I'm in a training environment and have been notified that the leadership is recording us in our personal spaces while cleaning ourselves and nude.
The short answer is NO. Report such conduct to the IG, NCIS, CID, OSI (depending on your branch of service).See question
I was lied to and wrongfully made to sign an unnecessary extension on my current contract, so I "would be able" to accept orders to a new command. I already had the orders assigned to me and was getting ready ship back to the states when I was app...
You should certainly call and speak to a lawyer that's experience than military law matters. There are many of us on AVVO they give free consultations. You could also try contacting a navy attorney at the DSO and perhaps they could help you. (I assume you're in the Navy – if not then your base defense office)See question
It states on application that you cannot purchase a handgun or a concealed weapons permit with a dishonorable discharge. Is a BCD the same thing?
It's a combination federal state law question re: your gun rights. You should contact a Florida attorney that specializes/focuses on gun right and gun right restorationsSee question
Is there anything that can be done about it? He was locked in the room with CID for hours and he has ADHD. Also we failed the last 2 appeals. He spent four months in jail and then got out. Is there any way he could appeal one more time?
The other two (so far) have nailed it. He probably exhausted his appeals if he's had 2 and he needs to talk to a lawyer. Perhaps there's a misunderstanding of how he appealed or if he even did.See question
Got my "retroactive retirement" packet from ARBA, after taking two years past what they said the process would be, and they're dicking me around pretty bad, considering all I've gone through....

I have only served about 2 years in US Army Reserve. I got naturalized through MAVNI program, but I will get discharged from the army due to failing multiple PT test. Since I had one Article 15 (when I was in AIT), my commander told me that it wo...
There are many "it depends" to the answer if your questions. Because it is a combo contract and immigration question - you should speak to a TDS attorney ASAP to assist it rebutting your separation and the ramifications. You can also seek the advice of a lawyer who deals with immigration law with a military background.
I'd not leave this to the answers of avvo.See question
After 3 years of loyal service I was passed up for a promotion I was more than qualified for. I had two interviews and in both my pregnancy was brought up several times. I need to know if I have grounds to sue or if I'm just SOL.
It's hard to tell whether this question really has to do with military law – but because it was put in this category I assume it was. If you really believe that is what happened, you should contact the Equal Opportunity Office or the Inspector General's Office.See question
when I looked at my DD214 from 1976 I see it is a general discharge not an honorable
If you want to know the difference in benefits - google MCO 1900.16 and go to appendix K. It's a Marine Corps publication, but tells you most of the benefits you rate or do not rate for discharge.
In chapter 1, it also discusses generally what each characterization means and it is consistent amongst the services. General it says:
*(1) Honorable upon EAS separation. Honorable characterization is appropriate when the quality of the Marine’s service has met the standards of accepted conduct and performance of duty for military personnel. Characterization will normally be honorable for Marines with both average proficiency marks of 3.0 or higher and average conduct marks of 4.0 or higher. Marines with proficiency marks below 3.0 and conduct marks below 4.0 may receive an Honorable characterization at the separation authority's discretion. The separation authority may determine an honorable characterization of service is warranted in cases where a Marine’s service is otherwise so meritorious that any other characterization would clearly be inappropriate.
General (Under Honorable Conditions). This is the second highest quality of characterization and is appropriate if the Marine’s service has been honest and faithful, but significant negative aspects of the Marine’s conduct or or performance outweigh positive aspects of the Marine’s military record.
A general discharge is considered "not dishonorable" for VA purposes and you're eligible for most benefits under the VA - so if you question is about a specific VA benefit - you should contact the VA or a lawyer that works in VA benefits.See question
