Legal Answers
Q. Do you lose any benefits after 20 years active duty if you retirement in lieu of elimination?
A: You really need to talk an attorney if you are asking yourself this question. That is a lot of money to not be sure of the consequences.
Q. I completed MEPS, took the oath and shipped out for bootcamp. I changed my mind at the airport now what?
A: You may be considered UA. Or they may have simply separated you. You should contact your recruiter to resolve the situation, or hire a lawyer to act as an intermediary.
Q. Can my friend’s Medical retirement benefits be taken away for fraternization while he was in the Army?
A: Technically, yes. If you are receiving pay, including retired pay, you can be recalled to active duty to be court-martialed for crimes, including fraternization, that occurred on active duty and are still within the statute of limitations (5 years for Art 92 violations). Realistically the Secretary of the Army is not going to recall anyone over fraternization allegations.
