My son is trying to get into the Navy. He is sworn in and is under contract, scheduled to ship out to basic in December. Now they are looking at background for some reason - we thought that was all over with. My son has a domestic violence charge with the outcome (advised by his attorney) pretrial intervention. It was SUPPOSED to have been expunged from his record. He was very young, and the charge was completely frivolous - brought by a girl who just wanted to hang onto him by giving him a hard time (go figure). Now we are learning that he may not be able to get into the Navy because of this stupid thing. He had a pretty crummy lawyer at the time, who I believe advised him for expedience rather than what would have been best for my son. Can anything be done?

I was in the National Guard and was a recruiting assistant
I was in the National Guard and was a recruiting assistant for the recruiting program during 2007-2008.Im not in the NG anymore. Been out since 2009. I received and emailed saying to contact the agent on the case. I called him and he wants to get CID In the state where I currently live in to come interview me. Should I be worried? Should I have a lawyer present? Is there a statute of limitations? They said they spoke to the receipts and only one remembered me cause we meet in school. I honestly didn't keep records of anyone I recruited and don't remember them. I know I have not done anything wrong but this is my first time in trouble like this and I am trying to get promoted at my job. I don't want this to affect my career and family.

I just finished over 6 years Active duty, ETS 13 May 2016.
Hello,JA: Hi. What is your issue regarding?Customer: I just finished over 6 years Active duty, ETS 13 May 2016. Before my ETS I signed up for a three year stint in the Reserves as OJT (on the job training) MOS. When arriving at my new unit, I was told I had to go to AIT for my new MOS. Since getting out, I got into an MBA program and am working full time in Management / Operations.. long hours and my new unit is not working with my demanding schedule. I left Active duty as a SSG. I feel like the Reserve recruiter lied to me. Furthermore, I am pending disability and at this time do not know my percentage.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Virginia - Reserve is federal. US ArmyJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I don't think so. The SFC that I am working with is a full time Reserve position and she doesn't seem to care, or may even be jealous of my transition success. I know she let other soldiers get excused due to school, however, I do not share the same race or gender.

I recently was discharged with an RE-3P for a shellfish allergy. I did not know about this allergy because I had never eaten shellfish before. They would not have found any problems related to this in my medical history. I understand I can't reenlist for 2 years. Is there any chance I will get a waiver and even have that chance in 2 years?

I have been trying to reenlist for 4 years now. I need a waiver, and I meet the Army regulation for obtaining a waiver. However, USAREC won't grant me a waiver. How do I approach this? I am currently seeking legal counsel to obtain this waiver. All I want to do is reenlist..
