Re: “Fighting While in Hiding

As the person on the other end of this UCMJ action from Col Thomas I can speak first hand. Yes, I screwed up, I only started gambling after I had my life thrown in shambles by UCMJ action. I was going through a tough time in my marriage and had an affair and was caught. I went to Col Thomas to attempt a "One on One" conversation to attempt to get my shit together. But Col Thomas would have none of it and immediately began investigating the EGREGIOUS crime of having sex. Funny how she was constantly then violating the UCMJ on a daily basis, if not then, certainly earlier in her career! So I was kicked out after 15 years of mostly outstanding service with NO benefits, not even considered a Veteran anymore eventhough I served in Iraq/Afghanistan. Also, what Col Thomas fails to mention is that I turned around a failing squadron prior to my horrible crime of consensual sex. So now every job application I tried to fill out the background check comes up with a federal crime....No one will touch me with a 10 ft poll. I agree that I screwed up, but if Col Thomas would have just talked to me person to person, I would've immediately stopped my relationship and got my shit back together. But she took a "holier than thou" approach while she was shitting on the UCMJ daily.....that's why we wrote the letter to the SECAF!
