Customer Question
If you know a soldier...
If you know a soldier in the Reserves who volunteered for deployment with the same co. as her ex husband, and then got out of it by lying to Dr.s and her commanders about being depressed and suicidal just to come home and file child custody and child support action agianst the ex husband who is now in Iraq, what can be done. She also had an affair while married, to a soldier in Ft. Hood Texas. That is what started the divorce. What can be done. She either lied to get into the military or lied to keep from deployment. Please let me know.

Thanks for the chance to help. I am an attorney with over 12 years military law experience.

If you know of a soldier who lied to avoid deployment, contact the current commanding officer (battalion commander). the commander can investigate and, if appropriate, prosecute.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
