How to remove a bad OER? Does your company represent people in that situation?

Lawyer's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Can you give any information on proprietorial misconduct by SJA and how it would play out on a case they tainted? we talked before a long time ago. Since then it came out that the SJA LTC that opined on my case slandered me worked around the chain of command and even disobeyed the CG to screw me over.

can I change this to a different question or charge me it is ok. I have another more pressing question I need answered right away.I recently did a request to transfer reserve units. There is a huge back story including me being flagged. The flag has finally been removed by order of the CG. I submitted a DA form 4651 request to transfer to a unit in California close to my current home of record. The gaining unit has already accepted me and signed the DA Form 4651. My losing unit is sitting on it. Can the command in Hawaii deny this request? This request is based on my home of record being more than 50 miles away from the Hawaii based reserve unit.I have already reached out to IG which is helping the best they can, the IG was already able to get my flag lifted.

Thanks

The commander can refuse to grant it.

The commander has what is called "discretion"...they have the ability to grant or deny the request.

Now...he can not treat you unfairly. Can not discriminate against you based on a protected status (like race, gender, religion, etc)...but he can deny the request if the mission of the unit dictates he do so.

Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.

What can I do to get my TPU to TPU transfer request based on my home being more than 50 miles away from the unit approved?
Military Lawyer: P. Simmons, Military Lawyer replied 2 years ago

I do not believe there is a regulation that requires this (transfer based on 50 miles) but let me opt out as perhaps another expert may know

It is covered in a regulation AR 140-10.

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.

My punishment for the art 15 is reduced pay (suspended) for two months, and a letter of concern/letter of reprimand filed permanently (not locally). The one-star general did not yet decide which letter he would write, but I think this is irrelevant as either filed permanently would effectively end my career.… read more
