I am a US Marine currently assigned as a recruiter. Due to

I am a US Marine currently assigned as a recruiter. Due to what I feel are unsatisfactory work conditions that are adversely impacting my family and my mental health (70 hour work weeks, complete disregard for my own and my family's physical/mental/emotional well being), I notified my commanding officer that I want to be reassigned and do not wish to continue my tour of recruiting duty. My commanding officer became irate and notified me that I was not authorized to resign my duties, and that if I refused to continue my recruiting duties, that she will charge me with Article 92 and/or Article 15 non-judicial punishment, continually until my career is destroyed. I have never had any punitive or disciplinary paperwork or actions taken against me in my 8 years of service. Up to this point, I have had an exemplary career. I have no desire to continue my service at this point, but I want to know to what extent would this likely be pursued? I imagine this is likely an article 15 NJP type of offense, but can I continually be given subsequent article 15's indefinitely? When and how does this end, and how would it impact my discharge? What, if anything, can I do to defend myself?

My son has a (hip and leg) stress fracture. He was in FTU

My son has a (hip and leg) stress fracture. He was in FTU and did not even make it to basic yet. They now have him in rehab, he does not feel it is getting any better. They will not medically release him, but are telling him that after he heals, he can quit. That will make it dishonorable and will effect the rest of his life.

Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: No. Do I need to?JA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Military Lawyer can help you best. Is there anything else important you think the Military Lawyer should know?Customer: This is my first experience with any of this, I think that nutshells what I have been told by my sonJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.

Sir, I am an Air National Guardsmen with over 15 years of service. I just received a commission as a 2nd Lt less than a month ago. I was notified today that I am facing NJP Proceedings for an alleged battery and fraternization against an enlisted member of the same unit. The alleged incident happened when neither of us were on any orders and was investigated by civilian authorities with no charges filed. As this happened off duty hours can I still face NJP? Do I have any defense to save my career?
