Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
Do you have any suggestions for his best course of action to handle this, if there is anything he can do to mitigate repercussions if he doesn't show up? Or to fix the MOS situation?
What about an ELS? Is that a possibility?
Ok, so this is my last question and I didn't really want to "go there" but my son's dad (my ex-husband) is a doctor and a US Army Major who did National Guard while going to medical school. I don't know how politics works in the National Guard and Army but would it be helpful to get my ex involved? What, if anything, could he possibly do to help? I know he would be willing.
Gotcha. Thanks! At this point, I think my advice to my son is to suck it up and go, and don't get blown up. :/
