Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
If she is receiving disability benefits could any action be taken against her benefits or is she completely safe once she is separated from service? Yes there is clear evidence that the relationship existed while we were both active duty. Does that 5 yrs apply to the start of when she separates from service?
And by misconduct you mean any contact or conversation with her since Officer/Enlisted personal relationship is prohibited? If she emails me or contacts me about the personal relationship as long as she is in would be the date of the last misconduct? Im just trying to gather when the 5 yrs would start for her to hold this over my head since she is still contacting me on a regular basis about the relationship.
She is not planning on separating from service until next summer. Would inappropriate contact be her messing me and calling me and us even being friends?
