I have a few questions and concerns. I went through a MEB

Hi, I have a few questions and concerns. I went through a MEB board process & it has been finalized & completed. I have my desperation orders. My ETS date is Sept 26, 2016. However, on my final out date, my chain of command flagged me & pulled my terminal leave to pend me for UCMJ for an incident that took place on July 28th, 2016. I'm trying to seek legal help to see what's going to be taking place. I have went to JAGS & they said they don't have any paperwork on me. I have already cleared with the PMO , but there is a pending charge... PMO said it is not being court martial. I'm just sitting around, haven't heard anything on what they're going to do with me. What can possibly happen? How will this effect my separation & my disability?

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?
