I am a CW4(P) in the Army JAG Corps. My FY16 promotion board
I am a CW4(P) in the Army JAG Corps. My FY16 promotion board convened on 10 May 2016 and recessed on 16 May 2016. On 28 December 2016, the Principal Deputy Under Secretary of Defense (Personnel and Readiness) approved the FY16 CW5 Non-AGR board report. My name was on this report as being approved as the only JA for promotion to CW5. The report was published in a Memorandum on 10 January 2017. My MRD was 31 December 2016. At this point I was transferred to the Retired Reserves as a CW4. All of my military education for this promotion had been satisfied.Should the date (28 December 2016) that the results were approved by the Principal Deputy Under Secretary of Defense, e.g., before my retirement toll my retirement and therefore allow me to retire with my CW5? What should be my course of action (COA)?

The person I married is active duty E5 in the army and in Germany.
The person I married is active duty E5 in the army and in Germany. I am a dependent in Hawaii raising our only son who is 6. Our home state is Texas. I need to consult with a lawyer about divorce. I don't believe this will be contested and we have not had financial ties for over 2 years. We have no assets together. We have been married only 5 years. We agree I will have full physical custody. Do I need to visit an army JAG office or can I visit a Navy JAG office ? and what information should I bring to my appointment.
About three years ago I was given an order to tell a soldier
About three years ago I was given an order to tell a soldier to perform an act (skip a doctor's appointment and clearing) in order to stand in a class a inspection. This was after the soldier was told for two weeks he was exempt, and then the day prior to the inspection I was instructed to tell him he had to stand in the class a inspection. The soldier was 6 days out from ets and had already mailed his class a's home. The post policy at the time was 10.duty.days to clear... I was recommended for a FG art.15 which I demanded a trial. A couple months later I was preferred charges in a summary court martial with the max punishment listed as reduction in rank one grade and forfeiture of money...I'm scheduled to go in front of ABCMR board middle of next month with the intentions of getting my discharge upgraded from general and to have my narrative changed to Secretarial authority...My justification for this will be impropriety in that I did not qualify for the chapter.10 because the court martial did not have the authority to impose a punitive discharge...My equity argument for the character upgrade will consist primarily of my service record. Airborne, Ranger tabbed staff sergeant with a CIB, EIB, two combat tours in Iraq, 1-1 ncoers, and other attaboys along the way...My main question is how far do you think the impropriety argument is going to get me. Do you know of anything others have done successfully with a chapter 10 discharge?I think I'm going to be sitting alright on the character upgrade, but the narrative is my biggest concern. Had I ever been informed along the way that with a chapter 10 comes an automatic RE4 I never would have done it. It makes since now but at the time I thought it was based upon your character, and thought I'd at least get a 3...Any thoughts would be appreciated

I was with the 4th Division HHC 2/11 Inf. Ft. Carson Colorado There was a conviction of two individuals but this was later overturned according to the CID records in Quantico, Va. The court martial was held the last days of Feb or first days of March 1972. My own CO witnessed my head bleeding and suturing at the hospital, from the injuries I sustained after testifyingSince I was at Ft. Lewis, Washington on Feb 26th 72 with orders to Vietnam. The CID escorted me back directly back to Ft Carson to testify. I do not have any record of the period from Ft. Lewis to Ft. Carson (Court Martial trail and events) and return to Ft, Lewis following the trial.

I am an Army (National Guard) Medical Officer and I recently
I am an Army (National Guard) Medical Officer and I recently became engaged to an Active Duty Navy Enlisted? I contacted an Army JAG, and because our relationship is based entirely outside the military, he said I was ok but I don't know if the actual marriage would change the situation. He went on to say generally the Army would only take action against the officer, but he was unsure of the Navy's policy. First, am I able to marry my fiance now, or do I have to wait until they're no longer in the Navy (plans to get out in 3 years.)Second, if this is not allowed, under what circumstances would this actually be a pursued issue as we are not even remotely connected in a military setting.Third, what would your recommendation be if you were advising us to minimize potential problems? We are not going to end our relationship under any circumstances.
