Separated RE-4 - JDA from US Navy in 2003... Here is my plan

Separated RE-4 - JDA from US Navy in 2003... Here is my plan for BCNR petition:Here are the detailed facts of the discharge and why it was bullshit:BCNR planWhen I was told that my add and adderall were not an issue provided I stop at June 2003, I was a minor. I signed my enlistment guarantee at age 17 and departed for DEP at age 18. I enlisted and signed all papers as a minor with my parents consent. Ultimately, what I wrote down for myself was my responsibility however, as a minor who was unfamiliar w/ the regs and under the supervision of my parents, I had no concept of the trouble I was walking myself into and neither did my parents. My recruiter Francis DeGrand, upon shipping out, stressed that I was not to say anything and I was not to mention that he was made aware of my ADD. This stood in direct contradiction to what was told to me previously.I entered RTC just four months after my 18th birthday. During P-Days, I was distraught while trying to determine how to handle this situation. While there, I was able to discern that I should have been put in DEP for one year, off my medicine the entire year.I was enlisted with a guarantee to EOD which would require a security clearance which would mean an in-depth investigation into my Medicals. Once I was able to figure all this out, I was about 6 weeks into Boot. This security clearance investigation would have revealed that I was on Adderall until June 2003 and i would have been processed out right then and there.So I decided to tell the truth immediately.I also asked to stay in the Navy. Instead, I was discharged and given an RE-4 code. I was totally unaware that this code needed to be waived or changed for me to re-enter the service. It was always my plan to re-enter. My RDC (Division 055 - Nov 2003) Garcia told me "you belong here, find a way back" and "have a nice life" when I left.In sum, I was given an enlistment contract that would require a security clearance after being instructed incorrectly about how to list my ADD on my forms. I was told that it was proper to omit ADD if off medication for 6 months. I was told all this as a minor and was then placed in an impossible enlistment contract by my recruiter due to the fact that the security clearance investigation would have revealed that I had not been off this medication for year. There was zero chance of my enlistment succeeding because I was rushed in after 6 months off my medication. I and my parents were purposely or negligently advised incorrectly while I was a minor. I did have have the requisite capacity at age 17.I did well in RTC and none of my mistakes were the result of ADD, they were simply part of the process of breaking a recruit down and building him or her up. Even my evaluation from the REU states I had improved. Please see the enclosed Psych Evaluation from 2016 completely ruling out ADD. Please also note a diagnoses of ADD at age 6; this can be found on my REU discharge summary which is enclosed.Due to the foregoing, I did not knowingly misrepresent or deliberately conceal material information due to being misled by Francis DeGrand while incapacitated as a minor. Please consider upgrading my RE-Code to allow me to re-enter the service as an adult, well availed of the requisite capacity to properly commit one-self to service.I think this is a solid argument for injustice. Currently, I'm working with a recruiter at the NG who's willing to submit the waiver. Higher ups are also taking the waivers. My situation is typically an RE-3 for the army so they're willing to submit based on that and my doctorate level education.

I have an RE-4 from the Navy from 2003 for "Fraudulent

I have an RE-4 from the Navy from 2003 for "Fraudulent Enlistment". My recruiter told me to lie regarding whether or not I took Adderall for ADD in high school. I listened until I thought better of it and told the truth. They gave me an RE-4. Today, I have since graduated College and Law School and want to get back in the PA National Guard to finish what I started 13 years ago. I have been in contact with a recruiter and understanding that this is waivable. I am extremely physically fit with no moral or other impediments. I have 2 daughters. This RE4 from 2003 haunts me. I already tried the BCNR through an attorney named Dale Saran and never heard anything back. I am not sure how much Dale really did.JA: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PAJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Once before Paid 3000 got nothing for it.... years agoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No, that's essentially the broad strokes

I am an Airman and I want to marry my girlfriend, but she's only 17, and I'm 18. I've looked all over and talked to a few people and I keep getting different answers. Can I legally marry her under the UCMJ if she's underage? Does it go by state law, like I've heard? Or does the UCMJ regulate it?

There is a 22yr old female officer in the military and a 17yr

There is a 22yr old female officer in the military and a 17yr old highschool senior who are interested in dating. They are both extremely smart and want to know exact answers before even thinking of entering into such a relationship. They have come to me for answers, however, I am a bit stumped. They are in Florida and have found out the civilian rules allow them to date without any questioned legality, however, she, the officer is specifically concerned with any military law that states she could get in trouble for it. She has heard rumors of court martial and the like. Please let me know any advice you have. In detail please...they want documented proof that nothing will come to harm either of them but especially her career.
