So I have a question I'm being read for a company grade Article 15 for a pattern of misconduct 15 charges have been put into the preceding two of which are accurate and fair and impartial but I believe the other ones were a pattern of singling me out holding me to a higher standard than any other soldier in my in it, which I understand is not always a bad thing but in this case nitpicking everything I do, good, bad, stupid, smart, anything, human mistakes other soldiers have made tenfold what I have and not just that an example a new Soldier came to the platoon, I took him under my wing got to know him build a relationship and Trust gave him the do's and don'ts and in return my squad leader and my platoon sergeant pulled everyone in the squad including him that this new Soldier was not allowed to talk to me anymore and if he did he would get f***** up corrective action this Soldier took it as an order and a threat of being smoked that is just one case in which there are many such as after mentioning that I was going through financial problems on account of my divorce and that I did not want to spend money on baby wipes for the field I was smoked and ordered by my squad leader to produce bank statements I tactfully refused was smoked again and told to call my bank and have them read off their last 5 purchases all to see if I was lying about my financial struggle I have not seen any other Soldier treated this way this article 15 was brought buy bias counseling statements that are an extension a singling me out I have eight Witnesses all highly decorated soldiers and a couple of ncos who can corroborate that I was single now that they witnessed I me being hazed and treated unfairly my question with all of this is what do you think do I have a chance to fight this any input is appreciated thank you?

I would suggest that you stop posting this to a social media site and go talk to trial defense services. Posting things pertaining to your UCMJ actions are never wise. Talk to TDS and see what they can do for you.

If you really have fellow Soldiers and NCOs who can vouch for you, ask them to be character references for you at the reading. They can speak for you on your behalf.

If you really believe that the Article 15 is bogus then opt to take it to courts-martial. Better be sure that you're right though or else you are doubling your heartache. If there is a chance that it is legitimate then just take your punishment and get over it. A company grade article 15 is a speed bump at best.

No doubt. On a related side note, SecDef Mattis stated he wanted to see more UCMJ and less administrative punishments. In this climate, you're right, better be damn well prepared to show its a bogus Art 15.
