The information presented should not be construed to be formal legal advice nor the formation of a attorney/client relationship. Any reference on the GI Rights Radio Show, Podcast or website to results obtained in a particular matter does not infer the probability of success for any individual in a particular case, as each case stands on it own merits.

Also please note that it is illegal for me as an attorney to advise you to break the law, even if following the law might violate your conscience. Please understand that it is against the law for a member of the military to leave their nit without lawful reason (aka “going AWOL or UA”). It is also against the law to refuse to obey a lawful order to deploy. In the end you have to make up your own mind about your actions. I will not tell you what to do.
