I am researching UCMJ offenses. I found your response few

I am researching UCMJ offenses. I found your response few years back that article 92 dereliction of duty statute of limitations is 5 years. Is that during wartime as well (Iraq/Afghanistan)? Or is it a capital offense because it is wartime? The internet searches I have done are unclear as to how dereliction of duty is treated specifically in wartime.

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?
