I recently made the reserve Maj board. But the DA is stating that they emailed me saying they flagged me for an art 15 that I received in 2008. Now they want me to rebuttal and send a letter to the president of the board explaining my art 15 so they decide to lift my flag for promotion or not. Is this situation worth my effort to move forth or best that I resign my commission.CPT hill, Arlene

Does the CO actually need proof to charge someone with

Does the CO actually need proof to charge someone with adultery for NJP? In no way did it affect the workspace or the command in any way. It was between a military member and a civilian. The only evidence is other individuals saying they witnessed the act.

I received my charge sheet today for article 107, my command opened an investigation on me for fratenization and adultery, my command asked my if my soon to be ex wife was planning to go on leave with me and I said yes, she said in her statement that she was not. Do I have a chance to fight this at a court martial? If I refuse NJP could they add on more charges?

There was an argument between myself and two others in the Chief's Mess. Because one of them went outside the Command, we were all investigated for Article 134. Once the other two parties found out about this, they wrote statements to place all the blame on me. I am being relieved for cause and recommended for separation from the Navy after 27 untainted years. What can I do?

Hi there, I was told by my staff Sargent that while my sister was visiting me on post I am responsible for her actions under the ucmj. Is that true? She was under age snuck out of my house and was fraternizing with some of my married neighbors. She came home intoxicated. I was really upset and cut our week long visit short. sent her home.2 weeks later, One of the wife's of the married men contacted me and is thinking about filing a complaint about her regarding possible infidelity/inappropriate behavior that she walked in on. I have questioned my sister about this and she denied everything. If the complaint is valid will I be subject to ucmj consequence?

I spoke with you previously about my situation but here is a

Good evening sir, I spoke with you previously about my situation but here is a recap along with an update: I'm in the military and was under investigation for adultery and fratenization. I am an E-4 and the other involved party is a E-2. It has been 5 weeks since the investigation finished and they informed me that they did not have enough evidence for adultery but we're going to try and NJP me because my soon to be ex wife who is an E-4 made a statement saying that I told her to lie on her statement, of course she can not prove I told her that but my Sgt Maj still wants to push for NJP. My soon to be ex wife is currently on deployment, and will be gone for another 7-8 months. Should i refuse the NJP if they try and NJP with just my wife's statement?
