I have the same question as posted here. I am trying to find

I have the same question as posted here. I am trying to find out when my son will come home from 517 discharge at Fort Benning. He is also depressed because it seems like those in charge of his process for release are not being met. He has stopped writing. I would think that once discharge the military would want to get them out of there and home as soon as possible not to waster their time or funds. Thank you for this information.JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?Customer: Fort Benning is in Georgia.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No. He has also been sick since they gave him the pill with many live viruses. He as had a terrible cough the whole time and seems to be allergic to the mold there.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: He has been bullied and actually beat up by some of the guys in his group.

My son is in BT at Fort Jackson and was diagnosed with grade

My son is in BT at Fort Jackson and was diagnosed with grade 3 stress fractures of both femoral necks (both hips). He was sent home on a 30 day con leave and recently returned to Fort Jackson. Upon recheck it was determined that while he is healing, it is taking too long. The physical therapist told him that rehab will take too long and that they are going to chapter him out. He was originally told that it would be a 5-17, but is now being told that they changed it to an 11 because the PT put in the notes that he did not want to rehab. My son says he was very clear with the therapist that he wanted to stay in and rehab and the therapist said no. I am worried that when he comes home with no benefits and a general discharge that my medical won't cover him for the injury due to the cause. He would also like to re-enlist at some point and I am afraid that he won't be able to because of this.JA: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: This isn't an education law question. My son is in the California Army National GuardJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: I just found this all out yesterday. They tried to get him to quit when he first got hurt and he wouldn't. I am not sure where to go and he is just taking what they are telling him since he is afraid he will get in trouble.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: That's about it. Thanks

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?
