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.

I was given an Honorable discharge DD214 after the board

Hi Pearl, I was given an Honorable discharge DD214 after the board reviewed my case and upgraded it to Honorable. I had an aneurysm while in the service but had been given a general discharge at the time. My DD214 shows Net active service this period as 10 months 7 days, not enough for VA home loan benefits from what I understand. I was previously in the reserves and had served 6 months and 6 days active duty training and 9 months 26 days inactive. My separation is listed as under Secretarial Authority as the reason for separation. AR 635 200 PARA 5-3 separation code JFF. Hoping you could tell me if you think the VA would consider this to be eligible for a va home loan even though I did not serve the 2 years.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: not yetJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I had an aneurysm at the time. I spoke to one of my state senators who wrote a letter n my behalf after I showed the medical records and sent to the review boardJA: OK. Got it. 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 then connect you two.

I recently made the reserve Maj board. But the DA is stating that they emailed me saying they flagged me for an art 15 that I received in 2008. Now they want me to rebuttal and send a letter to the president of the board explaining my art 15 so they decide to lift my flag for promotion or not. Is this situation worth my effort to move forth or best that I resign my commission.CPT hill, Arlene

I found out been out the military since 2013 and didn't even know. I'm trying to do a back track reenlistment and re enlist for the future. Been working on this for 8 months. I told the retention NCO she is not doing her job and making excuses. I did not curse. This is via text. Now she threatened to give UCMJ Article 89. I'm technically not in the army. No id can't get promoted etc. Can I get charged that and do I even have to go the reserves weekend duty?JA: OK. The Military Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: no i haventJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I guess that when I do go to drill I still get paid. But I don't have access to anything. Also the NCO said I threatened her more than once. And she is concerned of active shooters and disgruntled soldiers. implying I am a threat. All this info is documented. I didn't threaten anybodyJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.

I enlisted in USAR in October 2015 and started IET training

I enlisted in USAR in October 2015 and started IET training in January 2016. I have now been suggested for a discharge because of lyme disease I obtained in 2016. What discharge would this be considered? I was under the impression this would not be EPTS because 180 days of service started when I orginally enlisted. If it is indeed not an EPTS do i recieve any benefits.
