I am in the Marine Corps and I just received a "Warning"

I am in the Marine Corps and I just received a "Warning" ticket for speeding. I was driving and there was a 45 MPH sign a few hundred feet in front of me. So I increased my speed to 49. The MP told me that I was still in the 35 MPH zone, which I was, but I was just increasing speed for the upcoming sign. There is no court date. However, I really need to know if it will show up on the Blotter. I am stationed on Camp Lejeune.

My command opened an investigation on me and fratenization,

My command opened an investigation on me for adultery and fratenization, the investigation only took a week came up with little evidence, it's been 3 weeks since the investigation ended and I haven't heard anything. My commander is retiring next week and I still don't know what's going to happen. I know the CO can elect not to do anything but is someone suppose to inform me if the case has been dropped? Will the CO pass the case on to my next CO? How long can I be kept in the dark?

My name is ***** *****. I have a question regarding a

Hello, my name is ***** *****. I have a question regarding a General Under Honorable Discharge from the Marine Corps due to weight standards and PFT failures.JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: A year ago my fiance left me for another man. That struck me hard, so due to that I was at a mental stage where I didn't PT, became overweight, and didn't really care. I'll admit that. Due to this, I failed a PFT. Now, I'm going on Terminal hopefully June 17th. If my S-3 makes me run a PFT and I fail, will this downgrade my current Honorable Discharge to a General Under Honorable? I'm also 5 over my max but I can lose that.JA: OK got it. Last thing — Military Lawyers generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied).
