Hi I am an E-9 AGR in Vermont ANG. I have served 24 years of active duty and six years in the guard. My commander just notified me (three weeks ago) he is initiating a CDI for conduct unbecoming of a SNCO. This is the fourth CDI my command has initiated on me for the same accusation all of which have been unsubstantiated. I believe this CDI is for the same accusation as well. Is there a statute of limitations on these things? Can I be investigated for the same thing multiple times?

I did not know that my daughter's father was married. Obviously,

I did not know that my daughter's father was married. Obviously, I had my baby. He has refused to put my daughter on DEERS/Tricare with the excuse of if his chain of command finds out that he will be kicked out on a bad conduct discharge. So, as events have been unfolding he ended being placed in the hospital to receive some mental health help because he has anxiety from his life falling apart and my requests to have a private agreement with one of the conditions being he enroll her on DEERS/Tricare. He has signed and notarized the agreement and sent it to me. I am not sure what I should do at this point. I would never want his career to be in question because of a mistake he made, but at the same time I don't think my daughter should suffer for his bad decisions. I've gone above and beyond to be accommodating. Its hard for me to believe him because I was in the military and grew up on post and my father was a commander and I've never seen someone really get kicked out for enrolling his illegitimate child on DEERS/Tricare program. Lost. Please help me.

I just turned 18 years old; and am a freshman. I was born and China and was adopted by an American(I am a US citizen). won a 3-year Army ROTC Scholarship which starts next year. because of some domestic issues between my mom & dad, I have had some anxiety attacks this semester and recently my girlfriend broke up with me. The school counsellor asked a bunch of suicide questions and since English is my second language I didn't really know what she was asking, so I gave her the answers I thought they were looking for. unfortunately, I thought they wanted me to describe how a person in my position could commit suicide and it landed me a day and a half in a hospital for observation. I had no intention of suicide. Next year I will have to sign a document about the psychiatrist and I am told at that time, I will be deemed medically disqualified. Is there anything I can do? What steps can I take to mitigate this problem. I am a varsity Athlete with a 3.5 GPA and excel in ROTC. I wa
