My daughter has been separated from her estranged husband

my daughter has been separated from her estranged husband for almost a year. His currently Air Force Military Police and deploying in July. He has been harassing and stalking her since they have separated. She has received two TRO's, a service order and he received a simple assault shortly after they separated for attempting to strangle her. She's at wits end. She has another TRO and everyone is advising her to follow through with the RO. If she does she was told that he will lose his job, she doesn't want to do that to he or their kids, but he's getting worse. Is there anything the Military can do?

A recruiter has been, in my opinion, stalking my friend. He

A recruiter has been, in my opinion, stalking my friend. He has been to her work 6 times. A t-shirt with the Reserves was found in her house on her child's bed. He makes statements that reference the exact location where her husband is working (out of town). He hacked her FB account. I'm worried he's going to take this farther than he already has. I researched him and he is military but there are ? In his past. Now, he has hacked my social media accounts as well. He's dangerous as he's using military access to stalk.JA: Are you overseas or stateside?Customer: StatesideJA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: No, but I had finally convinced her to tell the police. They have a report; however, until he breaks the law, there is nothing more they can do.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, thank you

I was presented with a summarized article 15 summary today

Hello, I was presented with a summarized article 15 summary today based off article 86 Absent without Leave. my 1SG and company commander are pushing ucmj action because i was sleeping, on my day off(i am a shift worker so my off day was during the week) and missed their calls informing me that i had a urinalysis. I called them back at 12:15pm, as soon as i woke up and they said i was AWOL. I have been taking ambien for over a year now because my chain of command failed to remove me from the barracks after a stalking issue last year and i cannot sleep without it. While they did come to my barracks room, they know that I stay at my boyfriends house because I am scared to sleep in the barracks. They have his address, but did not come to his house. Thus, did not try everything to find me. During the first reading (today), I asked 3 times for copies of my article 15 packet and they refused to give me anything, including the article summary. I know for a fact that they have no right to punish me for something that i did not knowingly do. I have until 6 pm tomorrow to decide if i should accept, or court martial.. Accepting this, knowing that it is opposite of Army reg, and despite the evidence/documentation would be absolutely foolish. My 1SG walks all over soldiers, particularly female, and I am done putting up with their endless power trips. They said that I have no right to talk to TDS. What should I do from here? accept and appeal, or court martial?JA: Has anything been officially filed?Customer: yes. today was the first reading, tomorrow is the second.JA: Have you talked to anyone in the chain of command about this?Customer: My squad leader is the one sending me down the river. I want to talk to Sergeant Major in the morning, and possibly IG for the barracks issueJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I was sleeping on a non-duty day, 2 days after an ER visit, and missed their calls. I cannot be AWOL if i did not know that I was supposed to report to a urinalysis.

The soon to be ex-wife of a soldier friend of mine in the US

The soon to be ex-wife of a soldier friend of mine in the US Army, accused him of raping her a few months earlier before he filed for divorce. Since they were married at the time, wouldn't this fall under the criminal court and not Military prosecution jurisdiction, because they were legally married at the time? She had filed for and gotten a protection order against him for stalking her, even though they were married, so since he had to move out, he filed for divorce. On the protective order, she did not check sexual assault. Isn't that proof that she is lying now several months later in her new claim after he filed for divorce?
