    How can we report a violation of Fraudulent Enlistment (Article 83, UCMJ)?

    Does this also pertain to false information give to me prior to re enlisting in the national guard.
    Example: was told I could do woc but my unit knew I wasn’t eligible for the next few years due to mos requirements and a failed pt test. As soon as I was mad aware I asked to retract my paperwork and was told to late I signed and it was iperm’d. Please advise.

    done so many art 15, never seen a 83, could be because its very hard to prove fraudulant enlistment

    I know a guy who I’m fairly certain lied about his insulin dependent diabetes to get into the Air Force, then hid it along the way to a twenty year career.

    Does this still pertain to a situation where they lied to get someone separated from the military?
