Hello, I was a Captain in the [state withheld] Army National

Hello,I was a Captain in the [state withheld] Army National Guard and I was given an “Other Than Honorable” discharge and my Federal Recognition was revoked. I was found Not Guilty in a civilian court following the Army National Guard's haste to discharge me. I came back in the USAR (enlisted rank) and have since received my 20 year letter, but as of right now I will retire as enlisted although I held Captain rank for more than three years. I am still in the USAR.The Officer who performed my AR15-6, committed the same type offense, however unlike myself, he had the intent, and was found guilty (through a plea agreement) and was sentenced to four years in prison. The same state AG who oversaw my dismissal, allowed this officer to keep his rank, allowed him to retire with an Honorable Discharge.Do I have a case against the Army National Guard? I understand you have to hear all the details of the situation, but I just found out about this officer getting to keep his retirement and his rank. This happened over 14 years ago for me.I believe if the Army National Guard did not act in haste and convened a board (without my knowledge) until after the civilian court hearing, I would still be an Officer today and at the rank of Colonel or above with my peers.What legal action, if any, may I possibly have?Please provide me some information on who I can have a conversation with in detail about this situation.

My son is in the Army and facing a General with Honorable Discharge

My son is in the Army and facing a General with Honorable Discharge due to an incident in which he admittedly engaged in an adulterous affair for 3 days. His wife discovered the affair and he stopped having anything to do with this other woman. Unfortunately in her anger she posted this information on facebook in which his ex-wife got the posting and sent it to his Commander. My son and his wife have been going to counseling and are still together. An investigation was done and the Army has decided to discharge him. He has 9 yrs with the Army. Is there anyway to fight the discharge. He has already written letters had some help from JAG to no avail. He has commendations from all of the Commanders he has worked under since he began his service. Since his current wife does want to save the marriage she has also written letters asking them to reconsider.
