The first thing he needs to do if these children are as important to him as you say, and I believe they are, is to get himself an attorney. I know attorneys are expensive but he needs to start by going to the JAG office on base and asking for their assistance to find an attorney who would be willing to work with a military member and there are MANY retired military members out there who are now attorneys and will work with him to assist him in this matter. HE can also go to legal aid and also call the state bar and ask for the pro bono attorneys in the area for assistance. The issue here is that if he is found not to be the biological father he would have no claim to the child, but he should still do the test. However, the GAL is not completely accurate that he would lose the other child because of his chance of deployment because if that were the case it would be discriminatory based upon his military membership and it would be ILLEGAL and you need to let your son know that.
Do your son the biggest favor you can do here and get him an attorney somehow to represent him, it may take a little time to look to find one, but it will be worth it.
