Recent Military Case Results in December 2011:Posted: December 27, 2011
As 2011 winds down, I wanted to share a few recent results:
1. Last week — right before Christmas — an Army Reserve Medical Doctor and obligated officer client received word that his Unqualified Resignation had been accepted. His orders, reflecting an Honorable Discharge from the Reserve Component, arrived via email attachment later that day;
2. On 16 December, an Army Active Component Medical Doctor and obligated officer client’s case resolved favorably with amended PCS orders. We were successful in helping her seek reassignment to a new (and yet still local) Home Station with duties consistent and in accordance with a revised medical profile;
3. On 1 December, after full, fair and frank discussions and negotiations with my young (E-4) Army Reservist client’s commanders and staff, I’m happy to report that the command revoked his mobilization and deplolyment orders. Not only was the client holding an Educational Stabilization contract slot with this particular Reserve unit, but he was also an extremely poor fit for the unit’s upcoming mobilization and deployment to Afghanistan. Credit the commander for the decision to trust her instincts and make a call which served the best interests of the Soldier, the unit and the unit’s other deploying Soldiers.
If you are anywhere in the country — or deployed — and need help with a military matter affecting your career in any way, or if you need help with a mobilization or deployment issue, please don’t hesitate to give my office a call or email. Contact information is in the signature block below. Thank you and best wishes for a healthy, happy and reasonably sane 2012!
