I got a message from a guy I used to date (he was cheating on his girlfriend with me for 8 months and I had no clue, I found out and told her), because I told her, he sent me a message saying he 'hopes I overdose' and 'I hope you die tomorrow'. He's also in the military - I was wondering if there is any legal action I could take via UCMJ or otherwise.
He doesn't like you anymore after you told the other woman you were the other woman yourself.
While your decision was understandable, that you are out of favor is not a huge surprise.
His conduct is juvenile, but a message, or perhaps it is two messages, is not harassment. Not responding and blocking the number, leaving him as a blip in your rear view mirror getting smaller and smaller as you move on with your life is probably a better option. Seems you given him far more time than he ever deserved.
There is no legal action available here. I agree that the best action you can take is to distance yourself from this individual, including not texting him or responding to his texts, as hard as that may be. Count yourself lucky to be free of him and forget him.
This is not legal advice. There is no established attorney/client relationship between us. Talk an attorney licensed in your state for formal legal advice on this matter.
Don't contact him back and if it continues contact an attorney I order to file for a protective order
