Hello,

Thank you for the information and your question. As you likely know from reading the TOS and disclaimers on this Site, this is not a personal representation site, so we cannot directly assist you with your issue. We can discuss the rules, laws and your options, but that is the extent of what we can do.

In this case, your husband's Command can extend the MPO if they believe that is it necessary in this situation. You can certainly try speaking to the Command again and asking them to lift it, but they have the right under the law to do what is appropriate in their judgement. That said, if your husband believes he is being singled out and treated differently, without any legal basis, he can file an Article 138 complaint against his CO and the Flag officer over his CO will decide the issue. You can find out more about these types of complaints by going to the following link: http://www.public.navy.mil/surfor/cnspig/Documents/Article_138_Complaint_of_Wrongs_Against_the_Commanding_Officer.pdf

Please feel free to ask for clarification if needed after reading the information I provided. If none is needed, then if you could take a moment to leave a positive rating in the box above, I will receive credit for assisting you today. Thank you

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.
