I was pulled over, took a breathalyzer and was never charged

I was pulled over, took a breathalyzer and was never charged with a DUI while stationed in Georgia. As a result I was given a general discharge from the ARMY. Fast forward 20 yrs while trying to renew my CO drivers licence I was told that my driving privilege is under restraint from the state of GA preventing me from renewing in CO. I never had a GA drivers license and I have renewed twice in CO since my discharge, till now. How do I go about proving to the state of GA that I was not charged with a DUI and get this restriction removed so I can renew my CO license?

This issue causes him no pain and has completed basic training without any pain. Will he get in trouble for this?

I have an out of service debt I've been paying on for the

I have an out of service debt I've been paying on for the last 10 years. I separated from the Army, and they kept paying me for about a year after I got out. I recently applied for a debt waiver, but their response was that a waiver isn't authorized since I didn't request it within five years of notification. Is there a waiver to the five year time limit?

My sister is in the process of getting a divorce. Her

My sister is in the process of getting a divorce. Her estranged husband is a title 32 production recruiter for the Mississippi national guard. There are many moving parts in a situation such as this as you can imagine. Here is the meat of it though. He attacks her publicly via social media by alluding to the fact that she is addicted to pain pills, that she doesn't take care of their kids, and that she is basically a woman of loose morals when it comes to men. He harasses her via text, bullying her, making threats, and berating her. All of this is done on his government provided phone. My sister contacted his commander at the time in October of last year and told them about what was happening and nothing was ever done. He boasted to her that he just told them that it wasn't really her that called , that it was in fact one of her many boyfriend's that he claims she's has, getting a woman to call his command and act like it was her just to get him in trouble. He also has a suspended license that his command isn't aware of, but he still drives his GSA vehicle like it belongs to him personally. He carries kids around in it, takes it home, parks it at his house, goes out to drink in it. My sister is a strong woman but all this is getting to her, what does she need to do, it's obvious his command isn't going to do anything about it at all.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: This is where it's tricky to some degree. He recruits in Mississippi for the army guard but lives in LouisianaJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: Yes, I stated that in the first response.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Their kids are on social media and see the things he posts. He has prospective recruits that are friends with him on social media also that see those things. He threatens to take the kids phones away from them while he has them because he doesn't feel like she should be able to communicate with them while they are there.
