Arethia.I. Have a question regarding a pending GOMOR or Letter of ReprimandJA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: I was involved in a 15-6 investigation. For some strange reason the COmmander gave me a copy of the investigation and told me that I would be receiving a GOMOR. I can tell you just from reviewing the investigation that there are a lot of errors. I can also tell you that I have just learned the the Commander actually solicited people to testify against me. Since the letter has not been drafted who can I talk to about this. Please don't say legal I don't think they are on my side.JA: OK got it.

Hello my command is abusing their authority by changing the

Hello my command is abusing their authority by changing the order In which I pick my orders. I am a military student and I am supposed to pick my next duty station based off my GPA. I angered the lead instructor and he is now forcing me to choose last out of my class of 22. I was 7th to pick. It doesn't seem fair that someone could have all that power over the next three years of my life with my family simply because I upset him. Is there anything that I can do?

I am a veteran and I am using a VA hospital. I made a complaint

I am a veteran and I am using a VA hospital. I made a complaint to the director of the VA because the chief of police decieved me into trusting him to assist with an issue that he acknowledged was his problem but did nothing about it. As a result I had to go to court some 50 miles away and the case was dismissed. It was a parking violation that was improper because there was no sign directing parking away from area. The government attoney dropped the charge but I had to spend time and money to get there and it all could have been resolved had the chief of police in the VA handled it as he stated, so I did not have to go to court, . I complained to the director who is relatively new and she is a "witch". She has not been seen by barely any veterans and she wants to keep it that way. I tried to set up a meeting with her, and even gave her a letter explaining my situation. She, over eight weeks later replies by a letter written by someone else who obviously knows nothing about the situation. This was evidenced by the reply, but she signed it. She displays a contempt for veterans and I want to know what I can do?

I have a question, I am trying to file an Article 138 against,

I have a question, I am trying to file an Article 138 against, towards my Rating Officials, I fell that I have been illegally mistreated, and wrongful discriminated against. I feel that the Command abused their power, and position. I have been referencing the MCM ver 2012. I am unsure of what I have to do to ensure that those Official are held accountable, I do not want to go the IG route, because I cannot control the outcome of the IG case, and innocent people may become involved in a situation in which they were not at fault.

I'm a SGT/E-5 in the Army and I've been in for 12 years,

I'm a SGT/E-5 in the Army and I've been in for 12 years, last 6 in the National Guard. I've been a good Soldier but made a mistake in February and submitted a fake doctors note when I was sick for drill. They didn't make everyone else submit a note when they are sick but I freaked out when they asked for one 4 days later. I told my chain of command right away and admitted to this and just a few days ago, i got a memo from the commander saying I should be reduced in rank one grade for inefficiency. I have no pattern of misconduct and am a squad leader. I also do extra admin duties in the unit. From my understanding, for inefficiency there has to be a pattern of misconduct. Are they out of bounds here? From reading AR 600-8-19 they are. The reduction board is supposed to take place November 6th. Also can the batallion force the company commander to initiate reduction actions? Thank you.
