I am an Army Reservist and my command issued me an order in

I am an Army Reservist and my command issued me an order in a counseling letter stating that I must use my chain of command to address any concerns or potential violations. She said she put it in writing because I have had to file a congressional inquiry and IG at 2 different commands over sexual harassment issues in which the soldiers were charged. The letter was issued in part because I informed her in writing of some inappropriate things going on at the command. She also wrote about her disgust of my reporting these things to her in the letter. I reported these items to her when I was not in any duty status. How can she legally do this? Hasn't she broken some laws or violated the UCMJ? This does not seem right. I have only been in the Army 2 years and this just seems so not legal.

My sister is in the process of getting a divorce. Her

My sister is in the process of getting a divorce. Her estranged husband is a title 32 production recruiter for the Mississippi national guard. There are many moving parts in a situation such as this as you can imagine. Here is the meat of it though. He attacks her publicly via social media by alluding to the fact that she is addicted to pain pills, that she doesn't take care of their kids, and that she is basically a woman of loose morals when it comes to men. He harasses her via text, bullying her, making threats, and berating her. All of this is done on his government provided phone. My sister contacted his commander at the time in October of last year and told them about what was happening and nothing was ever done. He boasted to her that he just told them that it wasn't really her that called , that it was in fact one of her many boyfriend's that he claims she's has, getting a woman to call his command and act like it was her just to get him in trouble. He also has a suspended license that his command isn't aware of, but he still drives his GSA vehicle like it belongs to him personally. He carries kids around in it, takes it home, parks it at his house, goes out to drink in it. My sister is a strong woman but all this is getting to her, what does she need to do, it's obvious his command isn't going to do anything about it at all.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: This is where it's tricky to some degree. He recruits in Mississippi for the army guard but lives in LouisianaJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: Yes, I stated that in the first response.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Their kids are on social media and see the things he posts. He has prospective recruits that are friends with him on social media also that see those things. He threatens to take the kids phones away from them while he has them because he doesn't feel like she should be able to communicate with them while they are there.

My son is an active Marine. During basic training, they made

Hi. My son is an active Marine. During basic training, they made him carry 70 lbs. On his back, running up a hill. He injured his back and was told to suck it up. That was two years ago. Since then, he has been suffering from pain and they dismissed him each time saying it was constipation or something else. He came home on home time and went to his regular doctor, received an MRI and it clearly showed he has a herniated disk. He went back to the Marines, with x-rays and the MRI results in hand and was told, who gives a ....blank... about civilian doctors and disregarded his test results. His pain is excruciating now and they finally gave him an MRI, showing his herniated disk. Then, lost it. They did another and it showed the same thing. He is on limited duty, but the corporals are trying to push him to do things he cannot do. He cannot sleep because of the pain. He is getting mentally broken down because they think he is faking his pain and because of the harassment, not being believed, and not being treated. They tried to give him pain medication and that interferes with his vision. Now, they are trying to say he is bipolar and that is so NOT true. They are antagonizing him and not treating him properly.. I thought the Marines took care of their own. This is, by far, not the case. My son is suffering in the Marines, because of the Marines. What should he do?
