It’s impossible for me to give you all the full story of what my command did to me out to sea in only 4,000 characters so I’ll just leave you with the ending because that’s all that matters. The outcome after hiring Don King. Once we got back to port I contacted Don after I found his number on Google as a last resort. I was desperate and hopeless. I sent a pdf file [containing] all of the medical evidence as well as documented evidence I gathered over the previous months via email to Don. Shortly after we met face to face in mid December right before I went on holiday leave. I paid him his retainer fee & 2.5 months later I was honorably discharged from the Navy with a DD-214 in hand. Throughout the entire process of Don representing me he always reached out to check on me. And he made it clear to my entire chain of command that if there was any retaliation for me hiring an attorney there would be swift & severe consequences. He always offered moral support & answered the phone any time I had a question. He protected me on my way out & taught me how to properly navigate this entire process in a safe & effective manner. He was absolutely ruthless when it came to fighting to get me a good deal & make sure I didn’t get screwed over with a negative discharge that negatively effected my life outside of the military. Don is a man with a good moral compass, and 30 years [of] prior Navy JAG experience as a retired Captain. His knowledge & experience is absolutely priceless & if you pay for his services you will absolutely receive the best outcome that a legal representative can possibly provide. In a matter of 2.5 months Don did what Congress & the entire Department of the Navy couldn’t do combined. I couldn’t be happier that I came across Don’s name & I’ll forever be grateful to call him a friend. If anyone is being abused by their chain of command I highly suggest you start documenting absolutely everything that happens to you & contact Don King. Once you give him the evidence of what has been happening to you, he will get you what you need every single time.
KML Response: Thanks so much for the review and the kind words. I wish I could say your case was unusual, but ever more often we’re seeing service members being treated like “problems” to be quickly disciplined and separated. I’m so glad you reached out and got help as in no way did you deserve what they were trying to do to you. Unfortunately, many don’t think or know they can get help. Hopefully, by telling your story here, it will help others in need. All the best to you!
