I was very happy to hear the NCO that got discharged up the

I was very happy to hear the NCO that got discharged for beating up the child molester in Afghanistan was re-instated to active duty and cleared of charges. I know that he initially was given the punishment outlined in the MCM as he was guilty of the charges. I make reference to that because I was wondering if my case might be considered equally. I was a CW2 in the Army, charged and convicted at General Court Martial for BAH Fraud in 2001. Given 6 months detention and Dishonorable Discharge. I did the crime and paid back every dime, I plead guilty and made no excuses. I had been in the Army for over 18.5 years and my career was exemplary. Generally speaking, I got what I deserved according to the MCM, but never felt Justice was served. I want to finish what I started and complete my 20 years and retire Honorably. Is this possible in any way? I consider our two cases somewhat similar in the area of Justice.

I am ex military and currently married to a CPT in the Army.

Hello, I am ex military and currently married to a CPT in the Army. I have been actively trying to divorce him for at least six years now. From what I understand I am entitled to a portion of his retirement, as we have been married now for 15 years. He doesn't want to sign the divorce papers because he doesn't want me to get any of his retirement. What options do I have in order to end this long ordeal? Does he have a choice in the matter of the retirement? Also since we have been separated if he draws BAH as being married with a dependant and we are legally separated does that BAH belong to me and my child, whom I have physical custody of?

My question is will be he able to do this possibleJA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: The only thing I can say at this point is he wants half of my retirement, he wants full medical, and the sbp. I told him he can have everything but those things. I just want out. He has accused me of adultery. But the military dismissed it. He said I have not financially supported him which was not true. On top of of this he has constantly allowed him family members to call my command as well with these allegations.JA: OK got it.
