Also remember, sometimes the law does not support what we want it to support, but that is not the fault of the person answering the question, so please be courteous.
Thanks for reply. But are they even required to prove I had knowledge of this? I was never given a copy of the policy as it was on our own to get familiar with all policies. Fact is I was never told not to leave a 'x' mile radius but was told "I should have known better." Be advised, I turned in my own marriage paperwork so I would think that would show I didn't know. Thoughts?
Ok thanks a lot. One last response, I haven't been formally read yet just a counseling stating the recommendation. Is this Field Grade Article 15 overreaching in your view? I did nothing wrong besides being outside of the 250 mile limit and I have a spotless record. Also, when you say this is not the same as a regulation that means I didn't violate a regulation just the commander's policy letter correct?
The BN JAG officer is going to review it today. What will he/she be looking for, in an evidence perspective that would clear the court martial hurdle (I won't go down that route but I know they have to ensure they have a solid case). They only have a marriage certificate that I turned in. Again, I appreciate your time.
