Hello, I got a Gomar in 2010 for a dui. In 2010 I fought the charge and it was dropped to reckless driving. I got the gomar before the court findings, and never had an opportunity to change it due to deploying a month later. Now 7 years later I am a SSG and looking to be promoted. Is this a situation that I can fight, or am I stuck?

Recently, my spouse (an army major) was accused of

Recently, my spouse (an army major) was accused of plagiarism while enrolled in a service school via distance learning. The issue, is that she allegedly plagiarized a paper I had submitted in 2015 while also enrolled in the same school. I was recently contacted by the investigating officer who essentially accused me of plagiarism in spite of the fact that I had submitted my paper in April of 2015 and subsequently graduated the course in June of 2015. My spouse is still in the course and submitted the paper in September of 2016. I did not help or provide any assistance with regard to the assignment in question, so it is fairly obvious she copied my old paper without my knowledge since it was saved on a laptop we both use. My immediate questions are: Can the school hold me responsible and or punish me, e.g. GOMOR, even though I graduated 18 months ago and the alleged misconduct occurred last month? Can the school even run a 15-6 on me when I am completely outside its chain of command? I did provide the IO a statement stating very plainly that I did not commit plagiarism, that I did not provide my spouse unauthorized academic assistance and that I was no longer enrolled in the school.

I am in the Army, have served almost 6 years. I was

I am in the Army, have served almost 6 years. I was originally infantry then switched to EOD. I was changing my MOS again, unfortunately received a DUI 2 weeks before graduation. I have had no previous run ins with law enforcement, no previous UCMJ action, and outperformed my peers in military courses. I am not sure if they will discharge me. I know I am getting a GOMOR, but worried if I get a discharge, that it won't be Honorable. I understand it as receiving honorable is what i need for the GI bill. No one was injured in the dui case but my car was totaled. In your experience, what is the latest trend for punishments like this?JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Arizona is where the dui took place. Fort *****, *****tucky is where I'm stationedJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: Yes, my commander told me that I'm getting a gomor but that's all he knowsJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think that's it
