Air Force Medical Officer’s Voluntary Resignation Endorsed for Approval

Two and a half week’s ago, I reported that this Air Force officer client’s resignation had been endorsed by his medical and clinical treatment team.  Yesterday, I heard that his flag level commander recommended the resignation request be approved.  Will update as warranted.

If you are currently in the military, active or reserve, and you are considering available options for leaving the service before your Military Service Obligation (MSO) or contractual commitment runs, please call our office or use our email link on the website for a complete, confidential and complimentary review.

Thank you.

Number of Show Cause Boards and Boards of Inquiry Likely To Increase

Administrative elimination actions are on the rise.   I received a call last week from an Army officer with more than 18 years of active service.  The Army, through Human Resources Command (HRC) at Knox, had given notice that it intended to eliminate this officer before she became eligible for an active duty retirement under various provisions of AR 600-8-24, Officer Transfers and Discharges, dated 13 September 2011.   Eighteen and a half years of active duty service …. and she’s facing, “The Boot.”  

With the Department of Defense (DoD) now looking to cut, save and slash at every turn, it’s highly likely that many more service members from all branches will be receiving similar show cause notices in the coming months.    Given the direct threat these administrative actions pose to long-standing, valued careers … not to mention the potential loss of full retirement benefits … it is absolutely essential that anyone receiving a “show cause for retention” notice get the best qualified, most experienced military legal help as soon as possible.  

This is not the sort of thing you want to handle on your own.   These are difficult cases, often with serious and far-reaching consequences attached.

Please call me and we can discuss the situation more fully. 

Very Respectfully,   Bill
