I have a few questions and concerns. I went through a MEB

Hi, I have a few questions and concerns. I went through a MEB board process & it has been finalized & completed. I have my desperation orders. My ETS date is Sept 26, 2016. However, on my final out date, my chain of command flagged me & pulled my terminal leave to pend me for UCMJ for an incident that took place on July 28th, 2016. I'm trying to seek legal help to see what's going to be taking place. I have went to JAGS & they said they don't have any paperwork on me. I have already cleared with the PMO , but there is a pending charge... PMO said it is not being court martial. I'm just sitting around, haven't heard anything on what they're going to do with me. What can possibly happen? How will this effect my separation & my disability?

Good afternoon Ma'am, I am one of the Year Group 2015 Captains

Good afternoon Ma'am,I am one of the Year Group 2015 Captains being separated this year. I have 14 years total service in the Navy and Army with good to great evaluations. However, I have 1 relief for cause company commander OER. The reason for this referred OER was command presence. (Long story but the retiring BN Commander authorized me to travel to and from my apartment in weekends until i received orders for my command MTOE position and when the new BN Cdr took over, she disagreed. I was suspended and ultimately relieved. That occurred last year and fast forward to now.I leave Korea to begin terminal leave on June 1st and my last official day is August 1st. My orders state that I must be accepted into the USAR, ARNG or IRR in order to receive separation pay. Unfortunately, I found out today that I was denied for entry into the USAR (no reason stated and I'm searching on how to appeal). Moreover, my reserve recruiter told me that I was not eligible for the IRR since I was denied entry into USAR. I've read the regulation and my understanding is that I WOULD still be entitled to full separation pay. My new DD-214 states it as well with the amount of $103,000. However, my concern is that my orders state otherwise. Please advise...

Mr., First of all Semper Fi! I am asking this question on

Mr. Simmons,First of all Semper Fi! I am asking this question on behalf of my son that is now 9 days into terminal leave. He is an E-4 in the Army and will be completely separated (ETS) in mid-April. He received a GOMOR dated 22 Feb after finalizing all of the separation hurdles and clearing all of his "flags" for separation/sign-off. He currently has a DD214 (Honorable) and is in the civilian job hunt. Now, the back story - In October of 2015 he was detained for an alleged DUI on post. Within 12 hours, he was released to the custody of his battalion commander/SNCO (CAPT and First SGT). He did receive an Open Container citation which he paid within a couple of days -- NO other citations were noted or given. There was an internal memo that was retained with the MP's and stated the details of the alleged/possible implications of the aforementioned DUI charge(s). As I understand it, he does not have the right to appeal due to his rank however, I am curious if he has any recourse whatsoever to have this GOMOR filed at a local level vice his permanent record. He has no intentions of re-enlistment however, does have concerns of this affecting his civilian career. So, my ultimate questions are:What implications goes a GOMOR have in civil***** *****fe (Civil Service, etc.)?Outside of a Civil Service/Gvt Contractor career, should he have any other concerns?Thanks in advance!
