I received a memorandum of reprimand recently from the 76th Operations Response Command, MG York. I spent 30 years in the army
, active and AGR components.
I entered as a PFC and promoted to O-5 in 2011. I have completed Command General Staff College, Combat Lifesavers Certification, earned 5 (over 300 points) badges, several ARCOMs. AAMs and two MSMs. Additionally numerouis above COM evaluations. I have many Letters of Recommendations and and have done quite well as a single mother of two during the years.
I believe my former spouse, (prior military) learned of some of my accomplishments and became overly zealous, along with the fact that our daughter refuses, to speak with him, following his abandonment of us. These issues possibly percipitated his going to the 76th with word that I did indeed missdate my DOB, as he learned, by 3 years during my tenure with the military.
Additionally my "misconduct may result in adverse actions by the Army Grade Determination Review Board", he goes on o state.
The last paragraph of his memo of reprimand seems to allow for his final decisions to be made on this matter , after I submit any informaition I deem relevant to the issue. I did and admit, that I provide for my DOB to allow me to be three years younger, but I have also retained my military confidence, bearing, mental agility, with the ability to create a positive environment. I did try always to use sound judgement in matters pertaining to the command. I remained physically fit, developed others, communicated well using interpersonal tact and retained domain knowledge.
All this said, do I have even a prayer to limit my money from being recouped and to retain my current rank? If indeed I can provide OERs. Letters of Recommendations, Certificates of Completion and award certificates to prove that regardless of a three year missdate on all military documents, will this be almost adequate enough for the General to consider, in my defense?
Your time and advise is appreciated.
