I served active and reserve in the USMCR from 26 February

I served active and reserve in the USMCR from 26 February 1968 to 31 July 1987. At the time of my discharge, I was informed I did not accrue enough points to qualify for retirement. Although I was inactive from 30 June 1978 thru 31 December 1984, I am concerned that they did not accurately input all the points I was due specifically the non-active 15 points per year for the time I was inactive, and the two extra tours I did at the USMC Communications School (Basic and Advanced) in Quantico, VA in 1974 and 1975 (15 months). How should I proceed?

I'm currently E-4 in USMC and am facing possibly regimental

I'm currently E-4 in USMC and am facing possibly regimental NJP. I recently got NJP'd for having a female in the barracks and on that day I was supposed to run a CFT. I ended up not running it because it was almost over when I got there and I knew it wouldn't matter since I would not get promoted with a recent NJP. However, they found out couple weeks later that I didn't run my CFT and now are trying to NJP me for that. What can I do about it?
