Can an active duty (Air Force) officer date an enlisted national guard person (air force) who is located at a different base?
Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years military law experience.In theory, yes...since they are in separate commands and, again in theory, you can argue that there is nothing that would trigger the element of That, under the circumstances, the conduct of the accused was to the prejudice of good order and discipline in the armed forces or was of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces.But I sure would not risk it.Mostly since most senior officers would seek to prosecute the officer in question.Or if nothing else, reduce his rating in the OES system. And it could lead to prosecution, even if the end result is acquittal.
