I need to know if you have any experts in Military law that could tell me what my rights are as the spouse of an Air Force Veteran. I am currently separated from my husband of 30 years (22 of those years he spent on active duty).What are my financial rights as far as his military retirement goes. He is still living in Georgia, (where he retired) I am in Indiana, our home state, where we met & married.Also, do the laws in Georgia differ from those in Indiana regarding separation or possibly divorce? We have one 17-yr-old daughter, who is in GA with him. The house they are living in is in both our names.Help, please.Linda Grabos

I currently completed 4 years of active duty in the marine

Hello my name is ***** ***** I currently completed 4 years of active duty in the marine corps and received an honorable discharge. After active duty I joined the marine corps reserve. Fast forward 8 months late I recently took a pft and failed it. I retook it again a month later and failed it again. As far as I know you can only fail a pft once a year or maybe the order has changed. My main concern is would my honorable discharge be downgraded ?

I swore into the California national Guard last month and I recently told my family and they advised me to transfer to the Marines instead because I will have a better career in the Marines as a Marine Security Guard. I have R.S.P training tomorrow and, I have not been to basic training. I work two jobs and i'm scheduled to work at those jobs. Is there to cancel the RSP training training? My recruiter is trying to make me go to basic training and finishing my 3 year contract with them. I have told him, I don't want to do something without my family's support. I'm thinking about getting a lawyer, and I wrote an e-mail to my congresswoman. I want to go tomorrow to meet the commander but I don't want to do the RSP training.JA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: recruiterJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
