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?

A recruiter has been, in my opinion, stalking my friend. He has been to her work 6 times. A t-shirt with the Reserves was found in her house on her child's bed. He makes statements that reference the exact location where her husband is working (out of town). He hacked her FB account. I'm worried he's going to take this farther than he already has. I researched him and he is military but there are ? In his past. Now, he has hacked my social media accounts as well. He's dangerous as he's using military access to stalk.JA: Are you overseas or stateside?Customer: StatesideJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: No, but I had finally convinced her to tell the police. They have a report; however, until he breaks the law, there is nothing more they can do.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, thank you

I am a 3L in law school and was preselected for a marine JAG

I am a 3L in law school and was preselected for a marine JAG interview. From my understanding, after admission I would go through a series of training before beginning the Naval Justice training. I am well-above the female physical fitness tests, but after doing some research, I learned that antidepressant usage will disqualify me. Are there any exceptions to this, or am I just wasting my, and the interviewer's time?JA: Has anything been officially filed?Customer: I was given a prescriptionJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: I have not. My law school has had representatives give infosessions about the Marine JAGs. And I submitted my law school resume to a career conference for students interested in working in the government/public interest. I was selected for an interview on the 4th.\JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No
