Virginia(only U.S. law)? My husband has served 5 years in the US Navy. He was sent to Captains Mast for 3 hours of UA. He was given the punishment of 45days restriction and 45 days extra duty with 2 months half pay and reduction in rate to E3. He had served 18 days of the punishment when the captain woke up on the 18th day and reviewed the 6 cases he had seen (my husband's included) and decided to change his ruling and process all of the 6 sailors currently serving their punishment out of the navy. Is this legal!!!!??? After 18 days? If it is, I will gladly give up, but it doesn't seem right that he could be punished twice and serving one punishment while getting another. He is still on restriction and being processed out. You can't say someone committed murder and the next week wake up and decide they aren't guilty! Also, what is the normal length of time that the navy takes to separate a sailor from the navy. They are speeding the seperation process of all 6 of these gentlemen and are told by Dec 1st (barely over a week) that they will be out. Please Help!What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
