I'm a Air Force reservist who is planning to go IRR for the remaining 3 years left on my enlistment. I met my boyfriend who is an active duty navy officer while in "civilian" status. We have been discussing marriage however we do not want to ruin his career. Would it be better to wait until I'm officially done with my enlistment? Would there be any issues if we were to marry before then if I'm in an IRR status?

Apparently my son who is in the air force bought some

Apparently my son who is in the air force bought some marijuana legally in Washington state and brought it on base to try. (first time user), two of his friends found out he had it and bought some from him. Well, the friends pissed hot, and ratted him out. My son was truthful and admitted it and at first that thought he was el choppo, but I think they see now he's a kid who made a stupid mistake. No evidence, no pot, no nothing, just his admission. He's being offered 5 months confinement and a bad conduct discharge. Is there anything that can be done to lessen the punishment?

I have recieved one letter of counseling and multiple letters of reprimands. I have submitted rebuttals that clearly demostrate outside circumstances aided to me receiving admonishment. I continue to recieve written reprimands with to consideration to circumstance. I've expressed my concern to my chain of command in writing which has not been addressed. Now the commander wants to push an article 15. What is my next course of action when the command staff has all the supporting docs and award of my concern of unjustify/unfair treatment?

Me and my husband are currently separated since late October

Me and my husband are currently separated since late October of 2014. I've gone through abused with him so have to call the police and since that day it happened we never live in a same house again. We have a 5 year old son together. We try to be civil since the court order was lifted and no contact order was over. I thought were fine, accepted everything that has happen and start moving on.. He was dating already and since I thought were fine after a year I decided to date as well.. He was dating his soldier then and i never said anything because I just want him to be happy and were totally over anyways. We both didn't file divorce yet then just for the reason in my part as lack of financial money to go through it.. Then now, me and boyfriend are getting serious. We've moved in together. He knows everything about us just as much as I know about his relationship. We told each other that it's about time to just really finally file our divorce. Now the case is, after he have file divorce, most stuff that was written in there was very unfair and asking to just for him to support $300 after divorce is over from sending $1000 monthly. My boyfriend is in the service as well. Since I tried to contest with it, he's just now sending 270 and told me if talk to his commander about it he'll get my boyfriend in trouble.. I'm sorry for the very long story. I just want to put as much information I could because I know my situation is very complicated. I just wanna know what I should do since he's blackmailing us.. Thank you in advance. Hope I can hear from You soon and Hope someone could help me out.

My daughter and her husband serve in the Air Force. For the

My daughter and her husband serve in the Air Force. For the last 8 years they were stationed in Italy. Last year in November they were moved to a base in South Dakota. Soon after they were told, that they owe the military over 20 thousands of dollars. The military says that during their stay in Italy they were overpaid. It is obvious that they did not have anything to do with the amount of money they were paid and did not have knowledge of how much they were suppose to be paid.Both of them have an excelant reputation, but now they are accused of defrauding the government. What can they do?
