My son was at Air Force boot camp, halfway through. He was

Hello,My son was at Air Force boot camp, halfway through. He was selected to get an Intelligence branch job and was starting the clearance process when in one interview he was asked if he had ever attempted suicide. He said he had, as a child of 12 or so (this was news to his mother and I). Based on that, the Air Force told him he could apply for a waiver and wait, or go home and apply for the waiver. Now he is being told there is no way that the waiver will be granted, after he was told yes, there is a chance. I don't know the details of what he actually did, but does not the fact that he was a child, and there was no Emergency Room visit or any kind of medical problem resulting from the attempt have any mitigating effect? He is now processing out and will be home in a few days. Assuming he would like to try to get back in, what would you advise?

In my last question I told that I'm supposed to leave

In my last question I told that I'm supposed to leave boot camp for reserve navy in few days. And due to certain situations in my life, probably I will not be able to join boot camp. I was told in this forum that I will get ELS (entry level separation) and it will not impact my naturalization process for US citizenship. Currently I'm a US law full permanent resident. Now my question is that when I was reading "ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA FOR NATURALIZATION APPLICATION BY USCIS", there are 2 things, about which I want to know1-Have you ever received a discharge from US armed forces on the ground that you are an alien?My question is that iam a lawful permanent resident and of course alien. In my case, if I get ELS discharge for not joining boot camp, do I get into this question category?

My husband has had an affair with two married women who were

My husband has had an affair with two married women who were also in the military. The first one actually worked under him and was stationed on a cutter with him. They were gone for 6 months at a time and the relationship went on over a year and she harassed me, called me names, etc. after we transferred. My husband convinced me to stay and give him another chance, said all the normal nonsense. We had two kids and I had been very ill causing multiple surgeries. Anyway I moved with him and was doing everything to save my marriage only to find out that not even six months later he started an affair with the nurse from my doctors office. This relationship went on for 3 years and I had no idea because I was friends with this woman. She had access to my medical records etc and is part of a large family that are now lying about me and humiliating me on the island we lived on. We transferred and so much more has come out but my children are adults now and my husband up and retired out of the blue with only 5 years to go before his 30. He says if I leave him I will get nothing and he cant get in to any trouble!JA: OK. The Military Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: No and sorry for throwing that at you. Im sure I didn't make a lot of sense. I just want to know if he truly can get away with all of this? He is trying to force me to stay claiming he never had any intention of leaving me.JA: Is there anything else the Military Lawyer should be aware of?Customer: Oh yeah, there is a lot I have found out and a pattern of behavior that started not long after we married. I have to retired military members that were his supervisors that are telling me he was talked to by both of them (different states and people involved) about inappropriate behavior with women that worked with him. Don't get me wrong he never chases them they always seem to go after him! Only because he manipulates them into feeling sorry for him because he is in a loveless marriage to a woman he never wanted or loved but because of the kids couldn't leave etc etc.JA: 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 connect you two.

I retired 2.5 years ago from the Army after 20 years. 10 years

I retired 2.5 years ago from the Army after 20 years. 10 years ago I re-entered the service and didn't disclose a medical condition. I extended my enlistment 6.5 years ago and that extension brought me to my 20 years. To my knowledge the statute of limitations on Fraudulent Enlistment is 5 years which means even if they ran it from when I extended my enlistment I am past the statute of limitations. I have two questions about this situation.1. Article 43 of the UCMJ has some provisions for tolling the statute of limitations during wartime. Some apply to fraud but fraudulent enlistment doesn't seem to fall into any of those categories. Is the statute of limitations for fraudulent enlistment tolled for any reason at this time?2. If it is not are there any actions that could be taken against me administratively? Is my retirement/pension safe?
