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?

My son has a (hip and leg) stress fracture. He was in FTU

My son has a (hip and leg) stress fracture. He was in FTU and did not even make it to basic yet. They now have him in rehab, he does not feel it is getting any better.

Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: No. Do I need to?JA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Military Lawyer can help you best.
