I was discharged from the military to adapt and conduct.
i was discharged from the military for failure to adapt and conduct. when in reality i should have been discharged for medical. i was issued the wrong size boot in reception. and did not realize it tell i had started BCT. once i noticed and i informed my drill sergeant and he told me to keep going. so i did. after i failed the run in my first APFT, i went to sick call and found out the i have a severe infection in both of my feet. it was worse in my right then my left. they took some scans and told me that i had fractures in both of my feet and hairline fractures in both of my knees. when i came back and mentioned this to my drill sergeant. he told that it didn't matter because i was already being discharged for failure to adapt(because i failed my run in the first APFT). continuing on in BCT, my drill sargeant said i had to continue to wear my boots even with a soft shoe profile, and that i couldnt be issued correct size boot because i was being discharged. when i came home and talked my recruiter, i was told that i got screwed over in my discharged an should have gotten medical. i still have scars on my feet from my where my boots cut holes in my feet. since then ive mention my discharge in conversation to varies people and ive been told multiple times that i should look into suing the military for improper medical treatment resulting in an improper discharge.main point is do i have a standing or is it not worth trying?

I was in a military university and was falsely accused of drug
I was in a military university and was falsely accused of drug diversion. Drug test neg; here's part of my complaint: 1) I am a naval officer - security guards take all the items from my locker in plain view of my peers and subordinates. Not to mention, they also confiscate my prescribed medication, clearly labeled in its container. I told them "that's my prescribed medication - they said "we don't care," That my friend is theft', also it was a class II idler for medication which requires strict accountability. I have a letter from the Pharmacist stating that he was unaware how many pills security submitted to him.I was cleared and returned to workI was unable to obtain an appt with medical' so I asked if I could email my provider for. Refill. They said ok what I didn't know was that he was out on paternity leave, so he never responded.I went to discuss this with my instructor and he was very surprised. He even asked if Jen knew (she was my lead instructor. I said yes, she knows and right then she entered the office. Cdr couture said to Jen, hey did you know mike hasn't been on his meds? She said "yeah, it's a bunch of crap and an excuse,"After this, my instructor called me into her office and belittled me by stating that she didn't know why I was fighting my dismissal because nobody else wanted me there.I had an academic board a week later and the board was misled and it was obviously biased and set on having me removed from my program.I then went to Navy legal amd when cdr mcpherson found out, she called me into her office and threatened me (which I have on tape). I continued through the appeal process, but each subsequent person just agreed with the prior recommendation and I was ultimately dismissed. Prior to my dismissal, I was threatened again by cdr mcpherson and contacted my program director and told him everything.I'm beyond frustrated - I submitted my DoD IG complaint in aug 2012, and it still remains open. I really feel that it is being stalled by someone somewhere because this should not be taking so long. Can I make a civil suit against the people responsibility for getting me out. I have mcpherson on tape and I have 2 patient assessment sheets proving that those two people falsified their documentation (they were all friends)

Should I put in my retirement paperwork to be the timeline of the ADSEP or is that even possible? My command will do a Readiness Waiver if I desire. How does that impact my retirement? Thank you

This is my question. I was told about 30 minutes ago, I was
This is my question. I was told about 30 minutes ago, I was being giving an article 15 company leave by my CO. In 3 weeks. Now i have a question, if their was No witnesses, how could they convict me in court? If I choose to refuse and they take it that far. Only proof they would have was I said in a sworn statement, I used robutussin to get high. I understand it's a sworn statement but there's no physically proof I did that so how could they even convict me? Curious

Wify works at burger king on a military post. She informs her boss ahead of time that she won't be coming to work during the week end ( her only shifts ) since i have field training from nov 2-18. I'm her only ride to work. Manager ask her to resign or show up to work. Is there any privilege that she holds as military dependent that would prevent the manager to fire her? What should she do?
