I am sorry for this dilemma. But not sure I understand your specific question. You mentioned the term military technician ; are you on active duty ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No I have dual status I am a civilian employee and a reservist, and my question is, is there a statutory time for administrative actions investigations? 4 years is a long time to be under investigation it seems
Expert:  P. Simmons replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. There is no statute of limitations for administrative of investigations. In theory they could go back dozens of years.

Expert:  P. Simmons replied 1 year ago.

If this were a criminal matter; the criminal statute limitations would apply.

This is the part of my job I don't like...when the law is not in favor of my customer. I wish I could tell you that there was a statute of limitations_, but I can only provide you information based on the law so that you can act on the best available information to you...I wish I had better news, but can only hope you recognize and understand my predicament and don't shoot the messenger. I'm sorry!
