I retired 2.5 years ago from the Army after 20 years. 10 years
I retired 2.5 years ago from the Army after 20 years. 10 years ago I re-entered the service and didn't disclose a medical condition. I extended my enlistment 6.5 years ago and that extension brought me to my 20 years. To my knowledge the statute of limitations on Fraudulent Enlistment is 5 years which means even if they ran it from when I extended my enlistment I am past the statute of limitations. I have two questions about this situation.1. Article 43 of the UCMJ has some provisions for tolling the statute of limitations during wartime. Some apply to fraud but fraudulent enlistment doesn't seem to fall into any of those categories. Is the statute of limitations for fraudulent enlistment tolled for any reason at this time?2. If it is not are there any actions that could be taken against me administratively? Is my retirement/pension safe?

Why did this marine get a Medical Discharge from the
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QPVdVw5XaPw Why did this marine get a Medical Discharge from the Marine Corps while being COURT MARTIALED for failing to obey a lawful order and violating Article 134 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice???? A rank was taken away and he was Medically retired???? I serve Honorably and get hurt in the line of duty, with NO bad conduct my whole enlistment and don't get a medical discharge!!! Am I the only one that thinks this is wrong?? I fought for a year just to get my Honorable Discharge that I deserved because they gave me a General Under Honorable Discharge for getting hurt in the line of duty which caused me to be unable to perform my duties as an 0311!!! I am still waiting to hear back, what percentage they have evaluated me at for VA Disability, which will also be over a year of waiting. They separated me 2 days before I would of been promoted to E4, Corporal, and 4 days before my 3 year mark which would of given me 100% of the Post 9/11 Bill and my Good Conduct Award. I now know that it was all done on purpose after finding out that they found there was NO reason why they should of given me an Admin General Under Honorable Discharge due to medical reasons but medical reason are not service connected. Even though I was hurt while doing advanced training for my Unit. The injury I received has directly affected my everyday life since the day that I separated from the Corps in 2010!
I was convicted by GCM of vandalism about 9 years ago and removed
I was convicted by GCM of vandalism about 9 years ago and removed from the military with a BCD and 6 months incarceration, despite the fact that this all happened with 2 months left on my stop loss. This all happened while stationed in Europe. While waiting for the trial I applied for a passport and got one. There was a question listed at the time on there saying "Have you ever been convicted of...(I think it was a federal crime or felony, but I can't remember anymore)". Anyways I answered no to that, as I at the time had not ever been. I shortly after my incarceration came back to the country, met a girl, got a visa after working my way up from the bottom doing terrible jobs and changed my life around from the retarded decisions I was making previously. I have learned the language, and am almost through my bachelors degree here, however my passport has only about 1 more year left on it and I am scared about renewing it before my degree is finished. I am very successful now and am doing well in a company which I have found next to my degree, and I don't want to lose all of this. I have tried to research quite a bit if this could have an influence on getting my passport, renewed and most people on the internet are stating that it won't make any difference. However most people are idiots, and I want to be sure about this. The country of my residence where this all happened, and where I got the visa had no record of my criminal act in their country, despite it having happened off post, possibly due to the amount of time that had passed since then. Please let me know if this would prevent me from getting my passport renewed. This whole time I have been living here it hasn't been revoked, so I think that says something, but I want to be sure. Also please be specific on if this, as I am not aware of if my conviction serves as a felony. Therefore telling me that I should be ok if it wasn't a felony wouldn't really answer my question.
My wife of 23 years was caught having an affair with a retiredView more military law questions
My wife of 23 years was caught having an affair with a retired Military GUY, I am very aware the way the Armed Forces view adultery and some of its repercussions. Is there any laws governing a retired member of the services caught in this type of act? Since our tax dollars are paying this moron. Believe me my wife is even more to blame but I am just inquiring.
