I have been clean since 1977 and have turned my life around from those years in the Navy.JA: OK. The Military Lawyer will need to help you with this.

Two part question: Can the Navy involuntarily extend you after

Two part question: Can the Navy involuntarily extend you after your 20 years as part of the legal hold process so they can admin separate you? If PERSCOM is going to admin separate you after 20 years, can they take away your retirement?JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?Customer: Sure. My ex-step daughter accused me of abusing her several years ago. Not true at all, she was put up to it by my ex-wife who was discharged from the Navy on a psych discharge and tagged ineligible for re-enlistment. The FAP process was ridiculous. NCIS never even spoke to me about the claim and the IDC refused to review any of my evidence at both the initial IDC and the appeal IDC. Part of my evidence are the statements made by the CPS worker that she purposely only looked for, considered and included in her report evidence to support my stepdaughter's allegation and purposely excluded everything else. I am working on the third and final appeal, but PERSCOMM is already trying to admin separate me and I have been asked to sign a second extension. My retirement date was back in Sept 2015.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.

I have to this question. When a private Security

I have a follow up to this question. When a private Security company that I'm looking into applying ask you to list your military service and they get a copy of the DD214 what else would they have access to view? I was detained for questioning while inthe service by the MP's and released back to my unit. No arrest or any charges. I just had Article 15 NJP. I've had backgrounds and always been honest when completing, but want to make sure that I don't hinder myself while applying.

I am a National Guard Officer (1LT) and I have 2.5 years left

I am a National Guard Officer (1LT) and I have 2.5 years left on my service contract (+2 IR, total of 4.5yrs MSO left)I received full tuition scholarship through ROTC from '08-'12 at an out of state university.Recently, I have been reassigned to a duty station that is 4+ hours from my HOR, and I own a vehicle that doesn't stand up well to the winter conditions of my region. Additionally, I work as a freelancer, and my drill conflicts heavily with my income potential and job stability.I also have personal moral objections to military service, and have considered applying for Consciousness Objector status.My current situation is untenable, but I want to review my options in terms of separation, discharge, resignation, or even simply a claim of hardship to be reassigned.
