I'm a Air Force reservist who is planning to go IRR for the

I'm a Air Force reservist who is planning to go IRR for the remaining 3 years left on my enlistment. I met my boyfriend who is an active duty navy officer while in "civilian" status. We have been discussing marriage however we do not want to ruin his career. Would it be better to wait until I'm officially done with my enlistment? Would there be any issues if we were to marry before then if I'm in an IRR status?

I would like to ask what would recommend an XOI the second

hello I would like to ask what would recommend an XOI the second time around. It was a fraternization case that came out because of a sexual assault case. Is it handled separately now that the end of investigation is ending, and I was anticipating in a case that got to XOI, the next step would be Captains Mast. There was a turnover of XOs with the new one requesting for another but I believed the previous XO would have briefed him on the situation.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TennesseeJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: I have a JAG, a VCLJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I believed I put everything out there

I'm under investigation for fraternization and I have no

I'm under investigation for fraternization and I have no idea (besides someone telling my CO) why or where it's coming from. Evidently someone had evidence of fraternization but that's impossible because it never happened. I haven't been told anything besides I'm under investigation and handed a form. I'm supposed to be "interviewed" tomorrow afternoon and I have no idea what to even defend myself against.

Myself an E4 and a newly promoted E5 have been flagged and

Myself an E4 and a newly promoted E5 have been flagged and are under commanders inquiry right now. I chose to speak to an atty, he made a sworn statement. All we were told is there is "substantial proof" of misconduct but didnt tell us what. Article 134 gen article 1, adultery, and frat. Since he wrote a sworn statement he was told in questioning by cdr..what if i told you we have a picture that proves you werent where you say you were but didnt show him anything. Feel like it wasmore of a tactic than anything else. Cdr relinquishes cmd on Monday and she is the IO. Even a picture of him being around doeant constitute adultery.What happens next? Max punishment for either or both?

I recently made the reserve Maj board. But the DA is stating that they emailed me saying they flagged me for an art 15 that I received in 2008. Now they want me to rebuttal and send a letter to the president of the board explaining my art 15 so they decide to lift my flag for promotion or not. Is this situation worth my effort to move forth or best that I resign my commission.CPT hill, Arlene
