I got an Article 15 for non-criminal accusation. I was told by a JAG officers that my (CoC) - Change of Command, can not take anything from me, as in money or time or anything else, because one of the charges was not a factual statement, but a mere opinion by a E-5 in my CoC. I had no more evidence to present for my case, after i presented all that I had with me, so I went ahead and check the Not Appeal block and just took the punishment. Now I have been paying for that mistake made by my CoC giving me a Field Grade Article 15 for not obeying my superiors when I had a really serious issue with my medicine I was taken at the time and take now. I submitted documents to the Army Grade Determination Review Broad, to get my rank of Sergeant (E-5) put on my permit records because that was the highest rank I held in the Army. Can you help me in this dilemma, please.
Not clear from the question whether you are already separated or not. Either way though you can appeal to one of the ARBA boards if you have been unjustly treated on the issues. Best to obtain counsel to assist if you can afford it. If you are still on active duty you can also use Legal Assistance which would be free.
