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'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.

I have a question. My husband was court martialed and found

I have a question. My husband was court martialed and found guilty snd sentenced to 5 years. Although he did not commit the crime. He is AGR for the army and was stationed at a reserve unit. He was flagged not by his commander or the reserve side, but by Ft Campbell. The Reserve side had no clue why he was flagged and tried to unflag him. He was tried by tge state and they threw the charges out. I was told a mistake was made bc his command nor the reserved persued him. They also said they should have been discharged and picked up by Ft Campbell to court martial him. Trying to figure out if this information holds water
