My girlfriend is divorced. She has 2 adult children and an 8yr. old granddaughter, to whom she is basically a mother.Her EX is retired military, and supposedly she can't touch his money because he took a disability retirement, and supposedly that protects his money from even divorce distribution. She has never received a dime in child support or her half of his "household" income, which she was told would include income from his new wife. Maybe irrelevant, but she is only allowed in the country because she is married to him, and she owns a lingerie business. My girlfriend is unable to work more than part time (less) because of injuries and the small paycheck she gets is almost completely consumed by the garnishments she has had, due to her EX's debts (gambling, school, etc). He has forged her name on legal documents, taxes and checks and again, supposedly because he is retired military with full disability, she can't touch him. She can't afford to hire an attorney, and is only able to buy gas and food because I support her and her granddaughter with what little I can.

Hello Sir. I have a VERY important question for you. Being that you were an NSO, you would understand. I had an examiner for a disability exam at the local VA who I believe is purposely doing everything possible to prevent my gaining any more disability percentages. I have heard that there are a lot of Congressionals filed against her. I even pulled my records and found her disability questionaires she filled out on me. She did NOT ask me 3/4s of the questions but filled the answers in! I even showed her a report from a Neurosurgeon which indicated a VERY severe cervical problem. She said that he was trying to pad his paycheck since he wanted to do major operations! She hardly examines me at all. She is trying to change what a Doctor put down for some of my disabilities!! She is a Nurse Practitioner! What do I do? I mean, who di I contact? I mean, I am on Vicadin 4 times a day along with other meds! I have to miss a dose when I drive or I could get a DUI! I just have to deal with the pain.

I recieved an ELS discharge code 3A in Dec 2012 from the USAF. I self-eliminated from a special operations pipeline during water confidence portion of testing. Due to sequestration, assigning me to my back-up non spec ops job (that all potential candidates choose at meps) was now null and void, unless you make it a certain amount of days into the schooling. I graduated basic training and was at tech school for a month before the self elimination.I was presented with two options through discharge at Lackland AFB.1. build a case with USAF legal and try to get a random job assigned to me, the average wait time at that time was around 7-8 months (i was told) and also was not informed of the 180 day honorable period.2. The option was to recieve a 3A instead of a 3C so that we could re-enlist pending a waiver and letters of recommendation and get us out the door and to our next step alot faster. After talking with the former commander at discharge he discharged over 500 potential battelfield airmen with the same code under similar circumstances. Just in 2013 alone.Thinking of the core values of the Air Force, I decided that sitting in a discharge dorm collecting a paycheck for mopping a floor wasnt the best use of the governments money.I had connections at my local Air National Guard base so that was my plan to get home and enlist with them. The week after my discharge I was in their office. I interviewed for a job and after very long waiting periods, not having anything to do with my discharge, such as, recruiting office switches, changes of command, the government shut down in 2013, i re-enlisted in the guard.i found out i was elligible for my sign on bonus with the only disqulaifying factor having any discharge besides (honorable). I currently have a TS clearance and just graduated top of my class in my latest tech schools and have had several letters of reccomendation.My question is, does my case seem reliable enough to file for an honorable? Most of the cases I've researched are for people who cant get back into the military and are filing for benefits. The sign-on bonus would really help me financially since i am only an Airman first Class. Also, since my discharge was based on a try-out job and I have record of me coming immediately back into the force waiting over a year to just get my foot back in the door. and have a clean military history other than that.Thank you for your time Sir or Ma'am
