I recently got caught violating curfew in korea without a

Hi. I recently got caught violating curfew in korea without a battlebuddy. Another thing is that i tried to play the system by signing out of my barracks saying that i had a battlebuddy, which i did not. I heard from a battle that i got recommended for ucmj action and the command sergeant major is willing to sign on the form. From what i was told by my leaders, my caseis going to be brought to the brigade and taken fromthere on i guess because i was caught by the MPs. I know i did the wrong thing, and i am willing to pay for it. My question is, what could be the maximum , the minimum, and an ideal punishment ican get under ucmj action?? Is it article 15? Article 92??

I have an uncharacterized discharge from 2000 and I am trying to get a Security Endorsement from the State of Texas. One of the disqualifiers for that endorsement is a dishonorable discharge. However, I am currently being considered for denial since the person reviewing my application admits ignorance to what 'Uncharacterized Discharged' is defined as. In my case, it was due to an ELS. What could I point her to for her to be corrected?
