My command opened an investigation on me a month ago and

My command opened an investigation on me a month ago for fratenization and adultery because apparently myself an E-4 and a E-2 in my command had put in a very similar leave request with the same leave address (my record of home address) the E-2 stated that she used an old template (mine) and didn't bother changing the address because it was close to mine. The investigation lasted one week and it's been over a month and I still haven't heard anything or received charges, I will probably be eligible for promotion next month but my SSgt made me sign a non rec because he said I'm still "pending legal action." Since the investigation ended we have had a change of command and now have a new CO. Should I request mast?

There. I have a friend who is a commissioned officer in the

Hi there. I have a friend who is a commissioned officer in the Air Force and she is wanting to marry an Air Force member who has finished their enlistment on active duty but still has just over a year left on their IRR commitment. Is this technically considered fraternization as it doesn't seem to be laid out clearly anywhere in AFIs or in the UCMJ. Since the former enlisted member is no longer under a chain of command or within the confines of the UCMJ, is the officer doing anything wrong? I'd rather her not get into trouble if she can avoid it. Thank you.

Well, a Soldier accused me of being a "Toxic" Leader, no

Well, a Soldier accused me of being a "Toxic" Leader, no investigation was opened on it and this was over a month ago. Now it is time for promotion counseling to be done and I was given a "no" by the 1SG and then he told my Platoon Sergeant to counsel me, but my Platoon Sergeant does not agree with the "No". I believe this is retaliation from the 1SG against me due to the fact that no investigation was opened and that fact that everyone I worked with backed me up. I was wondering what my options were and how I do a Congressional inquiry in to the conduct of this 1SG.JA: The Military Lawyer will need to help you with this. Anything else I can tell the Military Lawyer before I connect you two?Customer: umm. Not really sure, I have my sworn statement that will describe the issue with the Soldier if they would like to see it.JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Military Lawyer about your situation and connect you two.

Hi I'm in a bad situationI'm getting 6105 for damages to a tactical vehicle. I Knew the course of action of what needed to tak place on my job. Simply I had to load rounds In a ready box and feed chute. I had a officer tell me to not load them in the feed chute. I went to show the officer the extent if I dont load the rounds in the feed chute. He still ordered me to not load the rounds in the feed chute. I obeyed his orders and didn't load them. To the conclusion damages where made to up $40000 bec the rounds where hanging out. They are now 6105 me because I did properly load the rounds in the feed chute.

I am an Army reserve physician (Drilling, in Massachusetts)

I am an Army reserve physician (Drilling, in Massachusetts) with a service obligation that will be completed 30 JUN 2016. The paperwork for the unqualified resignation is in process. I received notice yesterday that I will be deployed in OCT 2016, some four months after my service obligation ends. Essentially this is a stop loss, which I thought was no longer possible. Any advice or assistance would be appreciated.JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: That's about it. I am in the process of resigning from the USAR as my service obligation has been fulfilled as of 30 Jun 2016. I have not received orders yet for the deployment, but I am sure they are forthcoming. The deployment is 4 months after I am set to resign.JA: OK got it.
