I had several questions regarding the actions of a military off

Hello. I had several questions regarding the actions of a military officer. The officer threatened to have me court martialed if I contacted a civilian. The civilian had made it very clear that they wanted contact with me. The contact that was sought did not interfere with military operations nor was it with intentions to conduct an illegal act.Can a miltary officer do this? Is it lawful for him to do this if both parties wanted contact? What can I do if this order was unlawful? Can he or the military be sued if the order was knowingly unlawful? Can he be charged with anything under state/federal/military law if his order was unlawful? And finally, what articles of the ucmj generally cover harasdment/stalking?

I have a question how do I obtain a restraining order. I have

I have a question how do I obtain a restraining order. I have currently changed states. I had a military member locate my home and stalk me and make threats against me. I have seen the individual on several accounts, driving around and taking pictures of me, which forced me to change states. I have documented the incidents. I am not sure if I should contact the local authorities to get a restarinning order. How should I proceed?

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?

Hello,My name is Danny. I experienced two injuries, while

Hello,My name is Danny. I experienced two injuries, while deployed in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, that eventually led to a medical discharge. One injury was damage to my foot; resulting in surgery, multiple infections, slow recovery, and making up 50% of my 20% separation. The second injury was respiratory. The farms surrounding GB cropped sugar can and, during my visit, burned the stalks after harvesting. There was always a heavy, carbonized smoke drifting through our camp in the evening. This didn't fair well with my biology. I developed a heavy cough, which did produce blood, infrequently. My superiors thought I had contracted tuberculosis. Though all of my tests cleared me of that possibility, my symptoms remained.When I returned to my home command, my family practice doctors diagnosed my condition as reactive airway disease and put me on allergy medications. Due to my foot problems, I was put on a medical review board and eventually notified that I was separating. Here's the boot: 10% foot and 10% asthma. I don't have asthma; never did. Over the years, I've fought a losing battle. Not only did I get separated with a "red flag" that will never let me get back into the military, but I've lived with all the respiratory problems, also.Here's the "good" news... I have a new respiratory specialist. We've done special blood tests. I have infected lungs. Two bacteria that cause very low lying lung infections: mycoplasma pneumoniae and clamydophyla pneumoniae. And, yes, they can stay in there a long time before being detected. Doctor's diagnosis? NOT ASTHMA! I've been on antibiotics for 45 days and I haven't felt so good in a long while. 3 more months of antibiotics should knock them out completely. The question remains...What now? I'm a bit urked. I'd like my DD214 fixed. I would have liked this to have been discovered a long time ago, but now I'm older and not qualified for certain reinlistments or commissionings (now that I have a degree...). What should I do? Is there any recompense? Thanks.Danny (3 yrs active navy, 37 yr old now...)
