Customer Question

I may need to do an appeal on the OER. I have not received appropriate credit for the mission accomplishment.
JA: What state is this in? And when did the issue begin?
Customer: I live in California. However, the OER is from the time I was deployed in Doha, Qatar. We had a SR that did not stand up for his beliefs. It seemed he was manipulated to do "qualified" block. This is the second to the last
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: Not really.
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: The SR Rater did an "illegal" REFRAD and I challenged it. He ended up dismissing the REFRAD notice. However, I had to file with the IG on this issue.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Military Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
