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 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?

My command opened an investigation on me and fratenization,

My command opened an investigation on me for adultery and fratenization, the investigation only took a week came up with little evidence, it's been 3 weeks since the investigation ended and I haven't heard anything. My commander is retiring next week and I still don't know what's going to happen. I know the CO can elect not to do anything but is someone suppose to inform me if the case has been dropped? Will the CO pass the case on to my next CO? How long can I be kept in the dark?

My name is ***** *****. I have a question regarding a

Hello, my name is ***** *****. I have a question regarding a General Under Honorable Discharge from the Marine Corps due to weight standards and PFT failures.JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: A year ago my fiance left me for another man. That struck me hard, so due to that I was at a mental stage where I didn't PT, became overweight, and didn't really care. I'll admit that. Due to this, I failed a PFT. Now, I'm going on Terminal hopefully June 17th. If my S-3 makes me run a PFT and I fail, will this downgrade my current Honorable Discharge to a General Under Honorable? I'm also 5 over my max but I can lose that.JA: OK got it. Last thing — Military Lawyers generally expect a deposit of about $18 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
