I received a Gomar DEC,2014 and then I was removed from the promotion list 9 months later. I was then placed in front of a BOI and the decision was to eliminate me with a general discharge. In the process I started a MEB and recently received my rating. I am now waiting on a decision from HRC whether I will be eliminated or medically retired. I have served in the US Army for 16 yrs and 9 months, deployed 4 times to Iraq, Afghanistan. Through this whole processed I was never give an opportunity to receive my 15-6 until 18 months after receiving the Gomar. I went to legal and they blew me off when I requested a copy for 3months then I went to the local IG and they finally gave me a copy. The 15-6 stated that since I admitted to my actions that they could give me a GOMAR but, it also stated that they need to look at the circumstance of the situation, it also stated that they could do more or less. I was never given the opportunity to rebuttal to the CG but, was told to rebuttal the decision whether he place it in my OMPF or my local file. Nothing about rebutting the 15-6. I couldn't done that cause I never received a copy of it until 18 months later. I was told later (not by TDS) that I should have gotten the opportunity to rebuttal the 15-6 but, due to the fact that I didn't get the opportunity to even see it until after I demanded a copy (18 months later) from legal, that wasn't even possible. Even after I ask legal for a copy they blew me of for 3 months. I had to make a complaint to the local IG just to get a copy. The bot***** *****ne is that every thing that was done was influenced by my CG that had no administrated authority over the decision. He actually flew out from GA to AZ so, he could influence the Installation General to move my gomar over to the other CG that was the commander for the signal unit I was in the same building I worked in not because he was in my COC. He knew by doing this that he could play a big part on the final decision of the Gomar. After that was over, I was moved to the unit under the same general that gave me the Gomar. I had no opportunity to recover from the gomar like I should have been able too. Then nine months later HRC decided to take my promotable status away as well. Almost four months later I received a letter from HRC that I had to face a BOI. I wasn't given the opportunity to have a minority or even a female on the board, so the outcome of that was to separate me with a general discharge. My TDS lawyer made a complaint to the local legal office, that should have went to the Installation General then to HRC, that there was a board member whom was very obvious that he was against me. He asked more questions to the witness on both sides. than the government attorney. All his questions were obliviously against me. Even though my Lawyer requested another BOI back in May/June 2016, there was never a response. I actually went to Senator McCain and Congresswoman McSally office to file a complaint and they blew me off too. Is there anyway I can fight this? I served my country proudly and was never reprimanded for any wrong doings. I made the W3 promotion list at my first look and when only 47% were selected. They never even took into consideration of my stellar record/performance. It was obviously influenced. What sadden me is that I have seen officers, enlisted getting away with DUI's, Shoplifting and Adultery/Fraternizing but, nothing is happening to their careers. What I did was wrong but, the crime did not fit the punishment at all. They got me for falsifying a memo to a court session in OK that I was going to be TDY and couldn't make it to court. My actions cant compare to the offenses I have witnessed within my unit. I didn't risk anyone or my own life and I didn't gain anything from my actions. My former spouse is a CW4 and one of his buddies which was a CW5 called my unit and told my command and I was told by my rater if I went to legal without admittJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CW2 Hunt, LisaJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: More than once. I can't trust anyone on this installation. I went to the IG and they blew me off too. Legal didn't help, the IG won't help. I don't know what else to do. I will lose 17 years of selfish service and my retirement cause of this.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

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?
