The new revised tattoo regulation states, "..except Soldiers
The new revised tattoo regulation states, "..except Soldiers may have one ring tatoo on each hand below the joint of the bottom segment (portion closest the palm) of the finger. The Army recruiter is adamant that the tattoo can only be on the "ring" finger. I believe the ring tattoo can on "any" finger as long as it it is below the joint of the bottom segment of "any" finger, closest to the palm. Who is correct?
Hello I have RE 3P/JFV1 seperation from marine corp recruit
Hello I have RE 3P/JFV1 seperation from marine corp recruit depot parris island south carolina, Long story short I was 17 and was not ready and said the "magic words" as they are called. I played the mental card and said I would cut myself. Unfortuontly no matter how much I try to convince people I have no mental problems( 3 mental evaluations, Volunteer work) and a letter explaining myself i get nowhere. My next move to redeem myself is to hopefully have my re code changed. I understand its hard to do so and I need to provide information on how my discharge was improper, When I was taken off base to beufort county hospital I admitted to the doctor there that I really had no intentions of cutting myself and that I was just saying that to be discharged. I wish to (if its on record) submit this along with DD 293 form that this important information was not considered in my final evaluation upon having the decision of being discharged. I also wish to have information on how to have information on a evaluation that was untrue and inadequit o the reason of being discharged removed. This evaluation says that I was the "worst recruit". I believe it was irrevelant to the reason I was being discharged and hurts my chances of being employed by civil servant jobs. I also find it od and hard to believe to make this assumption after only being on training day 3. That is not enough time to rate me as a recruit. Its alson unfair considering that I was quitting. Obviously if im quitting im not going to be a model recruit and out of 80 something people in the platoon someone has to be labeled the worst. And again my rating amongst the platoon had nothing to do with my reason for being discharged. I wish to know what can be done to help my re code to be upgraded

I have an OER rebuttal that is extremely difficult to rebut.
I have an OER rebuttal that is extremely difficult to rebut. My rater has marked every values block a "NO" and This is the most extreme I have ever seen. I have a little over 14 years of service and never any adverse action against me. I was relieved of command, received a GO ART 15. If that wasn't bad enough, I had another investigation ongoing for inappropriate relationship that was found unsubstantiated except for statements that I would not report any violation of GO 1B unless I had to, which contradicts my actions because before my suspension, I initiated action against a Soldier that was involved in inappropriate relationships and ultimately received UCMJ. I have another GOMOR recommended for that. My OER says I asked an NCO to compromise their integrity to hide missing property. I am feeling like this is complete reprisal or overkill compared to many others that have lost property. I'm being rated Unsatisfactory, Do Not Promote and SR below center mass, do not retain. Its a mess.

Hi I was discharged from the Air Force with fraud enlistment
Hi I was discharged from the Air Force with fraud enlistment because of a tattoo that I recieved above my collar bone. I lied about the tattoo at MEPS. I made it to the fourth week of training before i was sent home. My dd214 says sep code JDA re-entry code non applicable. I know lying was wrong but I have since got the tattoo removed. Do you think if I submit the paperwork saying and showing I have got it removed I have a chance of getting back in. I dont want any of the benefits I just want to serve my country.
