    I’am trying to bring to light the events and incidents that took place while I was married to an enlisted service member ( Air Force ). During the course of our 15 yr. marriage there were multiple affairs I have proof of (i.e. txt’s, emails, pics. ).
    I need help in bringing these adulterous acts to the attention of someone who can help me. I have even wrote to the Chief of Staff (A.F.) at the pentagon and Pres. B. Obama. I’am a foriener who proudly became a U.S. citizen, only to be betrayed by the one I loved and was shown no support by the Chain of Command at the time. I need HELP, as I was faithfull and feel deeply wronged by many in a higher-up position, (the cover-ups and not being taken seriouslly). I’m just looking for some accountability on those who are supposed to be taking these matter seriouslly. Please help,, Helga Czarnecki 719 213 8089

    I was just curios to the regulations on an E-5 and an E-2 seeing each other. They are deployed to the same place, but not in the same company.?

    What about an E-5 using the barracks for sex and overnight usage by a civilian? And leaving said civilian un-escorted during the day when he is at his duty station @ work? This is occurring on Camp Pendleton and the enlisted person claims his CO and Base Security know about it and look the other way? As a Retired Veteran, I find this behavior deplorable and shows a complete lack of honor and respect for the branch of service he is enlisted in.

    Under Article 134, both can be charged with fraternization. Most companies have policies with strict guidelines concerning this. While it mostly applies to soldiers in the same unit, (favorable actions, for example), some policies forbid it period. Check your company policies. Exclusions may apply if the relationship existed prior to either soldiers enlistment.

    Casey, enlisted rank does not matter as long as they do not fall in the same chain of command.

    I was wondering what the regulation on an E-5 and E-3 seeing each other living together are not deployed and not in the same unit?

      First, learn English, how to spell, and use proper English grammar. It is sad that a foreigner, the first post has better grammar than you. Second, it is because of people like you and think like you that there are battered women all over this country. Put in the same shoes, I bet you would be seeking some amount of fair treatment for what your spouse did to you. Unfortunately for the military in general, the spouse is usually the victim and in most cases of adultery, the military will not take part in the case. Adultery used to be punishable under the UCMJ, but in recent years has been removed from punitive actions. The Ugly Truth is, that you are probably that same type of man that the original poster is trying to seek redemption from and you probably have one if not more trying to do the same thing to you. The Ugly Truth is, you will probably not make it far in the military and or every be truly happy with any of your relationships for fear that some day the women you have wronged will get the better of you. That’s the Ugly Truth.

    This reply is for Helga Czarnecki who just testified in a court of law that she has 6 (yes six) mental illnesses… I met her ex 3 months after he finally was able to leave her (March 2009). However, I can assure you that if you knew Helga, you would understand completely why anyone could be unfaithful to her… He should have never married her or at least divorced her a long time ago. She has wrecked total havoc on our life in the 5+ years I’ve known her. That woman needs to be institutionalized. If “theuglytruth” is replying to Helga – Thank You!!
