I have the same question as posted here. I am trying to find

I have the same question as posted here. I am trying to find out when my son will come home from 517 discharge at Fort Benning. He is also depressed because it seems like those in charge of his process for release are not being met. He has stopped writing. I would think that once discharge the military would want to get them out of there and home as soon as possible not to waster their time or funds. Thank you for this information.JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?Customer: Fort Benning is in Georgia.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No. He has also been sick since they gave him the pill with many live viruses. He as had a terrible cough the whole time and seems to be allergic to the mold there.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: He has been bullied and actually beat up by some of the guys in his group.

My son is trying to get into the Navy. He is sworn in and is

My son is trying to get into the Navy. He is sworn in and is under contract, scheduled to ship out to basic in December. Now they are looking at background for some reason - we thought that was all over with. My son has a domestic violence charge with the outcome (advised by his attorney) pretrial intervention. It was SUPPOSED to have been expunged from his record. He was very young, and the charge was completely frivolous - brought by a girl who just wanted to hang onto him by giving him a hard time (go figure). Now we are learning that he may not be able to get into the Navy because of this stupid thing. He had a pretty crummy lawyer at the time, who I believe advised him for expedience rather than what would have been best for my son. Can anything be done?

I just finished over 6 years Active duty, ETS 13 May 2016.

Hello,JA: Hi. What is your issue regarding?Customer: I just finished over 6 years Active duty, ETS 13 May 2016. Before my ETS I signed up for a three year stint in the Reserves as OJT (on the job training) MOS. When arriving at my new unit, I was told I had to go to AIT for my new MOS. Since getting out, I got into an MBA program and am working full time in Management / Operations.. long hours and my new unit is not working with my demanding schedule. I left Active duty as a SSG. I feel like the Reserve recruiter lied to me. Furthermore, I am pending disability and at this time do not know my percentage.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Virginia - Reserve is federal. US ArmyJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I don't think so. The SFC that I am working with is a full time Reserve position and she doesn't seem to care, or may even be jealous of my transition success. I know she let other soldiers get excused due to school, however, I do not share the same race or gender.
