I was barred from one Air Force base yet when I went to work

I was barred from one Air Force base yet when I went to work at a different base in a different part of the country, I was not allowed on base and thus lost the job on day one. The barment letter I received only spoke of the base I was stationed at (and its surrounding properties) while in the Air Force yet was informed that when barred from one Air Force installation, you are barred from them all according to Security Forces doctrine.My two questions are: is this barment situation correct? Also, does this apply to all DoD installations?

I am undergoing a 15-6 for poor leadership and poor

I am undergoing a 15-6 for poor leadership and poor treatment in my S1 shop after counseling a subordinate for her quarterly performance. She attempted to shape that it was a poor work environment because I would not allow her to run my shop because that was my role as the OIC. The 15-6 investigation has been on-going for over 3 months and no one in the chain of command will respond and tell me what may be going on or when it will possibly close. Is this a violation of any normal policy?JA: Are you overseas or stateside?Customer: overseasJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: yes on two occasions and sent inquiries via my lawyer.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: what would be ways I could legally request answers.

My daughter has been separated from her estranged husband

my daughter has been separated from her estranged husband for almost a year. His currently Air Force Military Police and deploying in July. He has been harassing and stalking her since they have separated. She has received two TRO's, a service order and he received a simple assault shortly after they separated for attempting to strangle her. She's at wits end. She has another TRO and everyone is advising her to follow through with the RO. If she does she was told that he will lose his job, she doesn't want to do that to he or their kids, but he's getting worse. Is there anything the Military can do?

Recently, he got in trouble because he bought alcohol for his fellow underage classmates. They said discharge is an option.

Looking rather specifically for a Air Force related

Looking rather specifically for a Air Force related question. I am trying to push through an exception to policy letter for a chronic illness. I have written congress members and received a response from the Pentagon that I need to do a ETP and sumbit to my MPC and further on to AFPC.I had one already prepared that had been returned to me w/o a signature. Upon seeing the official response I asked for any signature to forward onto AFPC. I was given a NON-CONCUR so I took that and forwarded on to get it to AFPC, hoping that the congressional inquiry would make them take it more seriously.Today I learn that apparently if the Unit Commander NON-CONCURS the ETP is dead in the water and cannot be approved at a higher level. I am not sure how true this is, I looked in the AFI, I couldn't tell really. I do know that the official response given to me was to accomplish the ETP and submit to AFPC, I cant really do that.Further more my medical condition and hardship have not been considered. So I am at a loss here

My son is in the Air Force..he has been in for 2 1/2 years

My son is in the Air Force..he has been in for 2 1/2 years will be 3 in September. He is an F22 crew chief. He has also been promoted to E4 within the last 6 months or so..Last September he went on his first deployment to Dafrah, UAE. For "combat" operations. While there, I'm not really sure what happened. But, he "fell" into a depression of some sort. He knew he wasn't feeling right and knew he needed to get some help. So, he went to Mental Health. They took him off the line (of course) and he saw both a psychologist and psychiatrist. The diagnosed him with Major depressive "episode" and put him on Prozac. He was making progress but I guess not as fast as they wanted being a combat operation. They got him to over halfway on the deployment and then decided to "medivac" him home. They also decided to promote him to E4 and tell him they were sending him home on the same day. It took him about 2 weeks to get back to Alaska where he is stationed. They continued his care, once back he started to see the next psychologist there and he decided the diagnoses for major depressive episode was not correct and did some more testing. The final diagnosis now is that he is ADD. They took him off the Prozac. They had promised to treat him get him on medication and treat him counseling to get him back where he needed to be. His doc (psychologist) told us that his every intent was to get him back to full duty. Well his Squadron Commander feels differently. He told the psychologist that he has no confidence in him on or off medication. The squadron commander is a Colonel the psychologist is a Captain. The psychologist unfortunately initially felt the Colonel was right or that he couldn't do anything about it. The Colonel wanted him processed for Admin Sep. Ok, here is the question, as of yesterday the Psychologist (Captain) said they are going to treat him with medication and give him Cognitive Behavioral Therapy..This is May and he came back from UAE in January. They have not done "anything" in the meantime other than see him once a week and no meds. He has only met with the Psychiatrist once in this time frame. The psychologist has NOT as of yesterday, submitted his paperwork to recommend discharge. He wants to afford him treatment first..So, now what. My son has NOT had a discipline problem in the Air Force or ever, the Air Force promoted him to E4 and told him they were sending him home from UAE the same day. They initially told him that they were going to "medically" discharge him now they are not sure now that they are going to do that. What if any legal right or what can he do. It sounds like the Air Force doesn't want to take responsibility for the diagnosis and treat him. No, he was never diagnosed with ADD or ADHD while he was in school. In fact he was an honor roll student and was in Air Force JROTC his entire time in High School. He did struggle in High School a little bit and was afforded extra test taking time and after school tutoring if he needed it but he was never tested or diagnosed with ADHD or ADD. He made it just fine in high school.

My husband was exposed to trichloroethylene while serving as

My husband was exposed to trichloroethylene while serving as a radar maintenance technician in the Air Force 1962 - 1966. He was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease 29 years ago. I have filed a claim with the VA, and a Letter of Disagreement has been denied. I have documentation that contamination was found at the remote radar site in northern Alaska where he served during his last assignment. Is there anyone available to assist in an appeal with the VA?JA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: I have talked with our state VA disability counselor at McGuire VAMCJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: VirginiaJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: There is no family history of Parkison's, and my husband was using TCE 'hands on' in his daily duties. The radar site was in remote northern Alaska near the Arctic Circle...the buildings were connected by corridors and he did not get fresh air for many months. The water supply was from a reservoir that was replenished by melting snow each year during the summer months. Again, I have unclassified information that contamination was found there in the 1970's which appears to be when the EPA began to follow this
