Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
Hello,Thank you for the information and your question and I am sorry to read about your son's situation. Just to be clear, can you tell me if he is attached to a ship?
Yes, he is attached to a ship and is stationed in San Diego. For security reasons I should probably not reveal the name of his ship as i have said he is at sea now for a short duration off the coast.
He just informed me that they did everything including the separation board (DSB) all the same day and never gave him a chance to appeal or go in front of the board and try for a better discharge at least. He said he's getting an OTH. He said they will be separating him within a week. Is that normal and can he appeal after he is out??? Thank You
