I am researching UCMJ offenses. I found your response few

I am researching UCMJ offenses. I found your response few years back that article 92 dereliction of duty statute of limitations is 5 years. Is that during wartime as well (Iraq/Afghanistan)? Or is it a capital offense because it is wartime? The internet searches I have done are unclear as to how dereliction of duty is treated specifically in wartime.

My son, who has been in the Arkansas National Guard, has

My son, who has been in the Arkansas National Guard, has been, or is on the verge of being discharged from the US Army, for depression. He was at AIT and some circumstances arose that just pushed him over the edge of depression. The medical team can recommend a "517" discharge. Will he lose his benefits? He has no disciplinary actions and the simple fact is he couldn't pass his final PT test after 68-W training (5th in the class). I am worried he will lose all his benefits.JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?Customer: He is in Texas at Ft. Sam but lives in Little Rock and is a member of the Arkansas Nat'l Guard.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: We are talking with the IG office at Ft. Sam. His National Guard liason at the base is worthless, as in unreachable.JA: OK. The Military Lawyer will need to help you with this.Customer: Oh, really... and this will cost money right?JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: during the final PT test, he tried to cut off a half lap and was caught and subsequently lied about it to the 1st Sergeant. They saber rattled for a while about Chapter 13 and Article 15 but that was to scare him. He admitted to cheating and lying to the Sergeant. The IG official spoke to the 1st sergeant and he is just pissed Sean lied but stated that Sean was very much "worth saving" as a soldierJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Military Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.Customer: Sean is an EMT in private life. And he was fifth in his 68-W class at AIT. He would be out of there today except for the PT run... and at the time, he was under medical care for pneumonia

My command opened an investigation on me a month ago and

My command opened an investigation on me a month ago for fratenization and adultery because apparently myself an E-4 and a E-2 in my command had put in a very similar leave request with the same leave address (my record of home address) the E-2 stated that she used an old template (mine) and didn't bother changing the address because it was close to mine. The investigation lasted one week and it's been over a month and I still haven't heard anything or received charges, I will probably be eligible for promotion next month but my SSgt made me sign a non rec because he said I'm still "pending legal action." Since the investigation ended we have had a change of command and now have a new CO. Should I request mast?

I am in the Marine Corps and I just received a "Warning"

I am in the Marine Corps and I just received a "Warning" ticket for speeding. I was driving and there was a 45 MPH sign a few hundred feet in front of me. So I increased my speed to 49. The MP told me that I was still in the 35 MPH zone, which I was, but I was just increasing speed for the upcoming sign. There is no court date. However, I really need to know if it will show up on the Blotter. I am stationed on Camp Lejeune.

Our Son went to Boot camp on 01/28/16 . While there he was

Our Son went to Boot camp on 01/28/16 . While there he was having a lot of knee problems and was sent for a MRI and asked if he wanted to continue, and like a good Recruit, he said yes, and did. Came home for his 10 days on April 22nd then Returned for SOI. After only his second week there he was sent to medical for x-rays and told he had a list of problems including 1) Bipartite Patilla 2) Patellar Grind 3) Edema 4) Ecchymosis 5) Erythema 6)Significant Pes Platnus 7) Knee Effusion and more he couldn't remember.He was told that they were going to try knee braces and shoe inserts for a week to see if it helped, but they never did. He was not given any pain medication and was told he actually had bone spurs in his knees.Two years ago we had taken him to a specialist because he was complaining that his knees ached, but they found nothing. So they are trying to say he withheld this information, which he didn't, because it was in the records from the referring Dr.'s office, which they have.They are Discharging him now medically. However, my question is how in he heck did they miss on his physical the extremely flat feet, and let him in ??? And will he get his money back for his dress blues?
