I'm in the army and currently AWOL unfortunately. I want to

Hey I'm in the army and currently AWOL unfortunately. I want to know if it's possible for my commander to still send me to Leavenworth or give me dishonorable discharge for going AWOL till I'm dropped from the rolls of the army and can go to PCF in Fort Sill and get processed out. I've been in contact with some people still in barracks and they have told me that was what their plan was to do to me and also they have made all soldiers in my platoon right sworn statements. Some background info I left after I had been recycled in AIT at Fort Sill

1. I am a civil service employee coved by FERS since

1. I am a civil service employee coved by FERS since 08/2001.2. I also retired from the US Navy in 1999 and receive military retirement benefits.3. I have a 100% VA service connected disability rating and accordingly receive VA compensation and Concurrent Retirement and Disability Pay (CRDP).4. I am 56 years of age.5. I have made the required military service deposit to include my military time as credible service for FERS retirement. I realize that in order to combine military and FERS time I will have to waive my military retirement pay when I retire from civil service on 12/31/2016. However, in my case the waiver of military retired pay in favor of the combined FERS annuity resulting from it results in higher annuity than keeping the military and FERS retirements separate.6. My questions are as follow:• Will waiving my military retirement pay result in loss of any of my other military retiree benefits, for example, TRICARE, Commissary, etc.?• Will waiving my military retirement pay result in any loss to my VA disability benefits?7. I have been unable to find any reference material that directly addresses my questions and hope that you can answer them and provide me references for the answers.
