My husband is 100% disable ptsd and Polar he was in the
My husband is 100% disable ptsd and Bi Polar he was in the Marines. He was self medicating at the time married the same woman twice she was convicted of prostution and for the kids he remarried her She is very proud of the fact that she knocked out hisfront four teeth. The second divorce he has NO knowledge of ever singing it. It is so unfair he was to give her 25% of his pension also pay child support and have an annunity. The 25% was a property settlement they never owned anything together and no support.Well child support has ended annunity paid to date and now 13 years later after living with him for seven years while married to another man she is demanding this money. Now the VA has determined that he was bi polar since day on in service. Does she havea claim here

I took separation in lieu of trial and received an OTH. I was a Staff Sergeant in the Marines, 5 tours, 2 Combat Action Ribbons, 5 Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals and recognized as the Combat Engineer of the Year across the entire USMC. I was accused of a slew of violations in a junior Marines attempt to self preserve but I knew I was guilty of hazing and assault (by definition of the UCMJ). I didn't beat this kid, I shoved him. I yelled at him as all Marines yell at each other. Due to my rank, and the other erroneous allegations it was SILT or Court Martial. I'm 30, married, two kids, diagnosed with PTSD and other disabilities and on the verge of being homeless. I cant get a job (not even hourly), I've had to file bankruptcy and I can't even get seen at a VA clinic. I have petitioned to have my discharge up graded through the Marines and the VA which they say can take months! What can I do now?
Mr. Simmons, My name is***** I separated from Army active duty in Dec. 1996
Mr. Simmons,My name is***** I separated from Army active duty in Dec. 1996, with 12.5 yrs service, accepting the VSI opton. I immediately joined the National Guard, and drilled actively until 2007, at which point I retired, with a 20 year letter, but per a Medical Review Board's determination of non-retention. So, I will be able to draw a retirement pension at age 60 (Jan. 2019). I did receive VSI payments for a few years which were later stopped due to receiving a VA disability rating (50%). I continue to receive monthly VA disability payments.Questions:1. I lost my business (and filed Bankruptcy) in 2008 during the financial crisis, so does that constitute a basis for VSI repayment forgiveness?2. In 2007 I had a heart attack, and in 2008 a stroke. My earning capability has been negatively affected. Do these conditions constitute a basis for VSI repayment forgiveness?3. What has been your experience is assisting others with requests to DFAS and/or the
My son-in-law was kicked out of West Point for failing a physicalView more military law questions
My son-in-law was kicked out of West Point for failing a physical training test by 9 seconds in his last semester. It was his second attempt but did not make the time. He did not choose to serve as a non promotable private for 5 years and was honorable discharged. It has been 4 years since he left WP and now the Army is pursuing payback of his education cost. When he agreed to continue at WP in his 2nd year the commander had a policy of helping kids in good academic and military standing with PT issues. However, a new commander drew a hard line. We do not feel he should be responsible for the entire cost given the policy change occurred after he made the commitment to stay. Is there anything he can do now? They are sending him documents they want him to sign acknowledging the debt.
