How do you contact a soldier on active duty?
Find their Facebook page. If you're an immediate family member contacting them about an emergency, you can use the Red Cross to do this - in fact, in order for a service member to be able to take emergency leave over a family matter, this is how it must be done.
There may be one other option, if you know both their first and last name, and it's not a name so common that they have to add additional characters to distinguish them from other service members with the same name, and that's the Army Knowledge Online (AKO) system. You could try emailing them at (first name).(last name)@us.army.mil. Otherwise, there are no resources available to enable the public to track down and contact service members.
Contact the VA on this topic; because their policies change. During the 1960s, 1970s, applications often said, (as an example) "must have served for 30 days or longer/or 60 days or longer/or 90 days or longer; on active duty." And sometimes those sentences had this on the end of them, "...on active duty NOT FOR TRAINING."
You can't. If the soldier is active duty currently, you can write to the world wide locator and request his duty station. This may or may not be effective; it will depend upon his current assignment and security levels. You can also contact the American Red Cross and they may be able to get a message to him. If the information you are trying to obtain is on someone who was previously enlisted, you can…
What are the chances for a deported girl to get back into the United States if petitioned by her US citizen and active duty Army boyfriend with a fiancee visa?
Active duty applies to a person who is in the Air force full time, it can also apply to a reservist who is performing active duty to meet his or her yearly obligation. Inactive duty usually applies to a member of the inactive reserve. They are not in a drill status, but could still be recalled to active duty.
You have to be 18 years old. Actually the minimum age to become a Soldier (Army of course) is 17. However, you must have your guardian's consent to sign any documents because you are under the legal age of 18. If you are talking about another branch: Active duty Army - 17- 42 Army Reserves - 17- 42 Army National Guard - 17- 42 Active duty Air Force - 17- 27 Air Force Reserve…
Whatever rank you hold as a reservist is recognised as such within the entire military. A reservist Sergeant outranks an active Corporal. However, there is a saying within the military - "stay in your lane". If the active soldier is not the jurisdiction of the reservist, then that reservist has no business getting in that regular's face and barking orders at them.
I'm in the Army and a soldier in my platoon performed 45 days of extra duty months ago and has yet to actually receive an article 15. What are the consequences and options for the soldier?
For an answer to this you really need to contact your base or post Legal Affairs Office. They would be in the best position to determine if the proper discipline was applied to your soldier. Consider this: Maybe he volunteered to perform the 45 days of extra duty to PREVENT himself from receiving the Article 15. (??)
Is it legal for a judge to issue a bench warrant for an active duty soldier already having a copy of his orders in the court system before he left?
More information is necessary. Has the soldier ALREADY left for deployment and is out of the jurisdictional area of the court? If so, the soldier should contact his unit's JAG Officer and advise them, and ask for guidance. When the court that issued the BW is notified by the military that you are deployed the BW will probably be withdrawn. However, if the soldier had not yet deployed by the court date and could have…
