chapter 14 b is in effect company commander recommended a suspended chapter. how likely is it that the battalion commander would agree with the company commander and my immediate leadership on this
State/Country relating to question: Washington
Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years military law experience.The fact that company is supporting is very good. It is relatively rare, so if the battalion is going to give a Soldier a break, it is most likely going to be if the company commander supports.But that is just the start. You want to build a case. You want to show the commander why it is a good ideate to keep the soldier. When a case gets to a chapter, the commander typically has a feel for what he or she wants to do. SO you have to be able to show them otherwise. You can do that many ways.. Statements from others in the command, particularly from Staff NCO's or junior officers. If the company commander supports suspension, then perhaps some of the others in the chain of command will weigh in. Then any other evidence to show that the misconduct or absence has some explanation. If you put together a package of information that shows the battalion commander suspension is the fair result, they may well take it.The best thing to do is hire a local attorney to help present this to the commander. If you can get a suspension that is a very big deal. If you get an oth it is hard to recover from.
with my companies support i have a very good chance they put me in asap and aa. does this play into his decision? they said if discharged it would be general under honorable conditions likelyhood of getting honorable if this doesnt play out in my favor?
