Rules for dating in the military

Then the snowplow driver came by asking for a cup of coffee or hot chocolate and I hit him over the head with my shovel. If I have to watch "It's A Wondeful Life" one more time, I'm going to stuff her into the microwave. Why the hell did I ever put Minot on the dreamsheet? Before I discuss these factors, it's important to understand the role of the commanding officer in the Military criminal justice process.

The commander is now giving me an Article 15, for not only the beating I gave the driver, but also for trying to shove the broken snow shovel up his ass.

December 31 - I set fire to what's left of the house.

Proof of sexual intercourse normally requires photographs, a confession of one of the parties involved, an eye-witness, or other legally admissible proof.

(The mere fact that someone stayed over at another individual's house, or even slept with them in the same bed is not proof of sexual intercourse.

I know he hides around the corner and waits for me to finish shoveling and then he comes down the street at a 100 miles an hour and throws snow all over where I've just been!

Snow packed so hard by snowplow, I broke the shovel. If I ever catch the son of a bitch who drives that snowplow I'll drag him through the snow by his balls and beat him to death with my broken shovel.

Element #3, in many cases, can be the most difficult item to prove. Kelly Flynn was the Air Force's first female B-52 pilot. Flynn was an unmarried officer who was having an affair with a married civilian. Flynn was advised by a First Sergeant, and later ordered by her Commander, to terminate the affair. Flynn was then charged with the offenses of adultery, giving a false official statement, conduct unbecoming an officer, and disobeying an order of a superior commissioned officer. Flynn didn't face a military court, however; she was allowed to resign her commission in lieu of court martial (lots of media attention probably had something to do with this decision by the Air Force).

The government must show that the individual's conduct had some direct negative impact on the military. She broke up with her "boyfriend," but later they got back together, and -- when asked about it -- Lt. So, where was the "military connection" for the adultery charge? Flynn's "affair" had a direct negative impact on the morale of that military service member (the enlisted wife is the one who originally complained about the inappropriate actions of Lt. In 1998, the Clinton Administration authored a change to the Manual for Courts-Martial, which provided that cases of adultery be handled at the lowest appropriate level, and provided specific guidance for commanders to use in order to determine whether or not the member's conduct was "prejudicial to good order and discipline," or "of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces." While the President does have the authority to issue changes to the MCM, this proposal resulted in screams and yells from Congress and was subsequently dropped.

This normally would include cases of fraternization (officer & enlisted) or a relationship with another military member, or a military spouse. Well, the civilian "boyfriend," was the husband of an active duty enlisted Air Force member, stationed at the same base as Lt. However, in a very quiet move, in 2002, President Bush adopted many of the changes that were proposed by President Clinton.
