if i chose to stop attending my monthly drills, what legal action could ensue? i know since i’m not an active duty soldier it’s a state to state basis but am not able to find anything regarding the tennessee laws on the matter. thanks in advance!
It could be a Felony, or a Misdemeanor with alot of Restitution required. The Soldier should talk to his Commander and First Sergeant and take the Military penalty without criminal charges being filed. The Courts can be very rough on AWOLs. At least hire an attorney that knows the TN NG, as a...Read more »

The divorce was finalized and signed by a judge 2 years ago in 2014. The decree says" The parties shall each be awarded any benefits maintained in his or her name alone, and each hereby waives any claim they may have to the benefits of the other."
