I was accused of altering my physiology on a routine

Hello, I was accused of altering my physiology on a routine military c/i polygraph. I did no such thing but about 2 months after the exam they pulled my access to my work building (did not revoke my clearance) and I was told I was being investigated. About a month after they pulled my access, my commander approved and endorsed my voluntary separation package. I am now officially discharged and not in the IRR or reserves. I haven't heard anything and it's been 8 months since the polygraph. Does this mean most likely case closed or is there still room for concern?

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.

There are a multitude of issues but to name a few. My husband is active duty soon to be medically retired. He is diagnosed with ptsd and depression ( and numerious other things). He has attempted suide twice , upon his return to duty he has been harrassed , by his command,such comments include being offered razor blades or being asked why he "scratched" himself. Im sure i dont need to remind you of the huge suicide epidemic facing the military as well as the "campaing" in prevention. Obviuosly this has put a huge wrench in our family functionality. Our most recent events is my husband being advised he was sexually assulted by a VA doctor. This once again is just a taste.
