Mr., I attached my original question in the photo to

Hi Mr. Simmons,I attached my original question in the photo to hopefully remind you of my case. We spoke on the phone about my scenario and the possible charges. I'll find out tomorrow what the next step is and if there'll be any charges brought forward. My question is what should I do to prepare myself? The JAG told me to not sign anything until he's reviewed it. I'll also ask to see the evidence. Can I copy the evidence or take photos of it or can I take notes on what the evidence says to bring to the JAG? My case was submitted to a staff judge advocate for their recommendation and I'd like to know if I can receive a copy of that recommendation as evidence? Anything else you'd recommend? Thank you!
