I am a 1LT (probationary officer) with 3 YOS. I am going through a MED board. I received my ratings, signed my 199 and I am now waiting to be put on the transition list next week. Unfortunately for me, I also just received a counseling for testing positive in a UA. My chain of command enrolled me in ASAP and I also just had my initial interview with CID for the investigation. They informed that this wil put a hault to the IDES process. However, my lawyer said it cannot stop my process until they officially take some type of action of separation. In the counseling it stated I will be recommended for UCMJ action and/or GOMOR but that the CG has the unltimatedecision. I know I don't have the right to a board since I am a probationary officer. I also know that my ETS date will be 90 days from when I receive it. Now,knowing that my MEB will not be put to a hault unless the CG signs a form taking action, is it possible I could ETS before this whole thinggoes down? As soon as I was counseled I assumed my MED board was automatically put onhold. But when I spoke with my lawyer about what was going on,he advised me to just "run for the door". this seems a bit sneaky but this is what he is telling me Ishould try to do. Is this good advice?? To just let everything run its course and just hope for thebest?
