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?

I have a top secret clearance and I'm an O-5 in the

I have a top secret clearance and I'm an O-5 in the military. I am currently up for periodic reinvestigation for the clearance. I was accused of Sexual Harrassment of a civilian (the circumstances were minor), for which I received a GOMOR. The GOMOR was not placed in my permanent file, I was not relieved of my duties, and for all practical purposes my official military file is still clean. When I PCSed from the job where the incident occurred, I received a good evaluation report on the way out. While I was in the midst of reinvestigation for my security clearance, about a year ago, the OMB security investigator met with me. I self-reported that I had been investigated for a Sexual Harrassment complaint. Yesterday, another security investigator met with me to ask me more specific questions about the Sexual Harrassment incident, to which I tried to be open and honest. DODCAF is on the cusp of adjudicating my clearance. Can I lose my clearance over this? Prior to and after the incident my record was clean.JA: OK. The Military Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yet.

I self enrolled to ASAP program because of concerns of opiates and narcotics provided by off post medical provider that I was referred to by Army? I disclosed my concerns medically long before I went to asap cause surgery was ineffective but I was refused a medical profile . I sought additional medical care through Army for Gynecomastia and andropause symptoms I was dealing with. I was refused treatment and told it was because I was overweight.I was given a script for blood work through telephone consult with Army medic that I filled through an Army lab and sent test to off post provider. He prescribed testosterone cypionate and thyroid medication due to inefficiency my hormone production. The army now wants to put me on sole provider status to limit my prescriptions. This may keep me from the HRT I think I need. I haven't hid anything from Army and notified them. What are my options to continue my treatments. To add to the problem is an argument I had with wife after entollment and they are calling it substance induced event thing I had no drugs or alcohol in my system. If I continue my therapy against sole provider agreement can I can be hit with Artice 92 Chpt 8 Chpt 14? I just want the medical care I deserve
