Representation in court-martial clemency

After a military member has been convicted in a court-martial trial, they have a post-trial opportunity to submit a request for clemency to the Convening Authority. That Convening Authority is then tasked with fully agreeing and approving a court-martial decision, making a different decision, or granting some form of relief. However, a conviction may only remain the same, or be reduced in some way. It may never be made worse.

Alcoholism among military members can affect security clearance

Heavy alcohol use has been cited as a prevalent issue among U.S. military members for a number of years, during both active duty deployment and post combat periods. Much of the problem is attributed to psychological components of deployment and combat experiences, as well as post-traumatic stress upon return to home base. Members who are having difficulty coping may turn to alcohol as a form of self-medication.

A difficult topic: Has your military spouse abandoned you?

When you got married, you were happy to give up your career to stay home and raise a family in full support of your spouse's military service. You may have felt, as many military wives might agree, that you were also making personal sacrifices to serve your country by providing a strong support system and foundation for a stable home front while your spouse carried out duties stateside or overseas.  

Is your military family care plan up to date?

Family life in the U.S. military is much the same, yet quite different, from family life in the average civilian Virginia household. If you and your spouse have been raising children in a military lifestyle for some time, you have likely encountered numerous challenges, especially if you've had to relocate or deploy at any time.
