Back in 2000 I received a bcd for illegal use of a controlled substance. I can still vote, however Im trying to get my concealed weapons permit in Florida. The maximum time I could have received was 6 months, and I was sentenced to 25 days, and got out after 21 or so for good behavior. The application states Dishonorably discharged, but mine is not a DH. How can I find out if I'm eligible to apply?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And has any official paperwork been filed?Customer: Florida. I have my dd214, but have not filed any for the license yet.JA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: No. I applied for clemency years ago but it was denied.

If the Army is accusing a soldier of possessing the substance spice/k2 but the substance was proven to be non illegal/ not spice in the local county courthouse, and the store which is in the same county as the base openly sells it because it has been proven to be legal, can the military call this incense a "drug" when the local courts and law enforcement says otherwise and take action against the soldier such as a bad discharge?

Hi. I recently got caught violating curfew in korea without a battlebuddy. Another thing is that i tried to play the system by signing out of my barracks saying that i had a battlebuddy, which i did not. I heard from a battle that i got recommended for ucmj action and the command sergeant major is willing to sign on the form. From what i was told by my leaders, my caseis going to be brought to the brigade and taken fromthere on i guess because i was caught by the MPs. I know i did the wrong thing, and i am willing to pay for it. My question is, what could be the maximum , the minimum, and an ideal punishment ican get under ucmj action?? Is it article 15? Article 92??

I'm currently E-4 in USMC and am facing possibly regimental NJP. I recently got NJP'd for having a female in the barracks and on that day I was supposed to run a CFT. I ended up not running it because it was almost over when I got there and I knew it wouldn't matter since I would not get promoted with a recent NJP. However, they found out couple weeks later that I didn't run my CFT and now are trying to NJP me for that. What can I do about it?
