You need to stop posting things on the internet and go to speak with a criminal defense attorney in your area. Do not speak with anyone else about this, and get copies of all the posts she has made on social media about this to take to the attorney. The attorney will be able to have a full discussion with you about the issues, and will determine the best things to do at this stage.

A run in with the law could mean a variety of things. Were you charged with a felony? If so, the military is being very selective nowadays and may not take you.

The internet is not a good place to get specifically tailored legal advice, which is what you need, an opinion based upon the facts, which you did not provide, and the law. Research has to be done knowing the facts.

Matthew Williams' answer
That's a fascinating question. You could certainly file a suit. Whether you would win is an open question as I don't believe anyone has yet sued the military. Set up a consultation with a civil rights attorney and see what he or she thinks of the idea.
