And iPac has been calling me to come and get my dd214 . I no longer have a military ID . Am I required to still go to formations ?

My son has served in the National Guard for 4 years while

My son has served in the National Guard for 4 years while attending college and in ROTC. This summer he was diagnosed by a civilian doctor as a type 1 diabetic. He is scheduled to be commissioned in December. He went through a military physical during training this summer and his AIC was normal as was all his other tests that they performed. Failing to report what the civilian doctor found out is not an option he wants to do. If he reports the diagnosis what is the timeline for an MEB? When going through an MEB does all other processes get put on hold, such as his commissioning or basic officer course?JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?Customer: GeorgiaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No, he has discussed with his Unit Commander but not contacted JAG yet.JA: Has anything been officially filed?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No

I have an RE-4 from the Navy from 2003 for "Fraudulent

I have an RE-4 from the Navy from 2003 for "Fraudulent Enlistment". My recruiter told me to lie regarding whether or not I took Adderall for ADD in high school. I listened until I thought better of it and told the truth. They gave me an RE-4. Today, I have since graduated College and Law School and want to get back in the PA National Guard to finish what I started 13 years ago. I have been in contact with a recruiter and understanding that this is waivable. I am extremely physically fit with no moral or other impediments. I have 2 daughters. This RE4 from 2003 haunts me. I already tried the BCNR through an attorney named Dale Saran and never heard anything back. I am not sure how much Dale really did.JA: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PAJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Once before Paid 3000 got nothing for it.... years agoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No, that's essentially the broad strokes

My son is in BT at Fort Jackson and was diagnosed with grade

My son is in BT at Fort Jackson and was diagnosed with grade 3 stress fractures of both femoral necks (both hips). He was sent home on a 30 day con leave and recently returned to Fort Jackson. Upon recheck it was determined that while he is healing, it is taking too long. The physical therapist told him that rehab will take too long and that they are going to chapter him out. He was originally told that it would be a 5-17, but is now being told that they changed it to an 11 because the PT put in the notes that he did not want to rehab. My son says he was very clear with the therapist that he wanted to stay in and rehab and the therapist said no. I am worried that when he comes home with no benefits and a general discharge that my medical won't cover him for the injury due to the cause. He would also like to re-enlist at some point and I am afraid that he won't be able to because of this.JA: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: This isn't an education law question. My son is in the California Army National GuardJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: I just found this all out yesterday. They tried to get him to quit when he first got hurt and he wouldn't. I am not sure where to go and he is just taking what they are telling him since he is afraid he will get in trouble.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That's about it. Thanks

I was accused of altering my physiology on a routine

Hello, I was accused of altering my physiology on a routine military c/i polygraph. I did no such thing but about 2 months after the exam they pulled my access to my work building (did not revoke my clearance) and I was told I was being investigated. About a month after they pulled my access, my commander approved and endorsed my voluntary separation package. I am now officially discharged and not in the IRR or reserves. I haven't heard anything and it's been 8 months since the polygraph. Does this mean most likely case closed or is there still room for concern?
