There. I have a friend who is a commissioned officer in the

Hi there. I have a friend who is a commissioned officer in the Air Force and she is wanting to marry an Air Force member who has finished their enlistment on active duty but still has just over a year left on their IRR commitment. Is this technically considered fraternization as it doesn't seem to be laid out clearly anywhere in AFIs or in the UCMJ. Since the former enlisted member is no longer under a chain of command or within the confines of the UCMJ, is the officer doing anything wrong? I'd rather her not get into trouble if she can avoid it. Thank you.
